I have one real big question for you...

Are you passionate about the Indians?

If you answered yes, then great, we are on the same page.

If you answered no, you are a Yankee fan that mistakenly fell onto this link, go away. Or worse, a Tigers fan.

But now that we've got that out of the way, you probably did click on here because you have some sort of interest in writing about the Indians, and that's where we can help each other out.

I started this site in 2008 and have been the only person putting up things, aside from the occasional guest post here and there. I'm not in my prime youthful years anymore. I'm a real grown-up with other priorities and time commitments. Not to mention, my voice is boring all the time.

I've learned a few things about this fan base since I've been doing this. For one Cleveland fans have incredibly intelligent opinions and thoughts. And not only that, they are vocal about it. Finding your voice in this fan base, can be tough, it has taken several years for more than a few people to pay attention to The Tribe Daily.

This isn't about me, never really has been. This site has just been something that I've enjoyed doing because it involves a few of the things that I really love and enjoy. 

With all that said, I'm looking for people that would like to contribute to the site. I don't have much to offer you in return, but here are the details of what I'm looking for, and what I can do for you.


What I Can Give You
It isn't much, but there are a few things that I can offer you if you'd like to contribute to the site.
  • A voice. Really, I know how hard it is to start a blog from scratch and get people to read it. It takes a lot of hard work. If you just wanna be heard, a few people will see what you have to offer. If you are a writer just starting out and need a voice, lemme help.
  • Along with that, I can offer you something to put on your resume if you are looking for that type of thing. It isn't easy to get experiences when you are starting out. You wont have it on your resume years from now, but when you are getting your foot in the door, SOME writing experience helps. I can be a reference for you too.
  • A set of eyes. I've not only been doing this blog thing for a few years, I earned a degree to do this stuff (no, not own a profitless blog), so I know what I'm doing in terms of writing and all that fun stuff. I've worked at a newspaper, I know how to edit and I know how to write for the web. If you want advice on your stuff, and someone to look over it, this is a great opportunity.
  • A platform to display your passion. Look if you are just as passionate as I am about the Indians and just want an outlet, that's what this is all about, so you probably should just talk to me right now.

Currently looking for:

I have one requirement. It isn't writing skill or experience. It isn't an expertise or specific set of interests or ideas. You don't even have to know how to type...well, that would help, just don't let me know you don't. All you need to be is passionate about the Tribe. Seriously, that really is why this site is here, so if you are passionate, let's talk.

Any of this sound good?  If it does, shoot me an e-mail (nino@thetribedaily.com) and we can talk. I don't take applications or want specific questions answered, but if you have examples of stuff you've written, great. Again, not required. Don't be afraid to shoot me an e-mail today! I'd like to build this site's number of voices up, so if you want in on the fun, let's talk.
