Do you want to write for a nationwide newspaper and get paid for it? In yet another of my blogs, I've been writing about garage sales for the DC ExamineR: http://www.examiner.com/x-6038-DC-Garage-Sales-Examiner
The Examiner, which runs news sites in many US cities, has been recruiting a lot of writers, and they have a referral program, too.
If you do apply, I'd appreciate if you'd go through my referral page at:
and enter my referral code, 6038.
You get paid per page view when you write. The more articles you write, of course, the more you can potentially make. I don't think it's the path to riches, at least at this juncture, but if you stick with it and get a nice body of articles out there, it can be some extra dough.
