Landing A Writing Gig

Postby Gangsta Luigi » June 5th, 2017, 12:55 pm

Hey all.

Remember in my recent post where I said I would be visiting the servers more? Well, I've been meaning to, but the reason I haven't been doing so is because I've been in the process of signing on with a Microsoft-focused website called Windows Central.

Basically, they're mostly tech focused (phones, laptops, tablets, apps) but they've been recently pushing their Xbox/PC gaming coverage, and one of their senior editors read my blog and offered me a job on their site because of how impressed with my work he and many others of the staff of the site were and because they've been looking for a game-focused writer.

Pretty excited by it, the money is solid and it's work that I love to do, about games, which I love to play.

I haven't been added to the site yet, but I'll update this post with a link to my profile on the site once they do add me so that you guys can find all my articles in one spot, should you be interested in reading.

I have signed a contract with them though, and hopefully they're impressed with what I've lined up to submit to them during my trial period to "officially" land me the position.
