So a fellow AWer suggested I should perhaps post this link in here. She seems smarter than me, so I'm following her advice ;)

I was solicited to write a guest post by a sports news/blogging site after one of their editors saw me being opinionated on a friend's facebook page. They asked, I obliged, it got published, and they liked it enough to ask me to pitch more ideas to them. Yay! I pitched a second one, they accepted and I'm now writing that too.

No money changes hands, but I quite like sports-related blogging, and it's all good practice, right?

Bats, a publishing credit is a publishing credit--and that somebody wants what you write is so very validating, the no-money aspect doesn't matter. (Unless you're knocking yourself out to do this stuff.)

Good for you!

Maryn, pleased

Yes! That validation is no small thing. Congrats!

Thanks everyone!

It does feel like a nice validation of my non-fiction writing, and I'm pleased you agree it is indeed a publishing credit. :)
