Around the Foghorn is seeking new writers, Giants fans
By Aaron Somers
Around the Foghorn has held a steady place as FanSided’s home for San Francisco Giants coverage dating back to when the site was first launched in August 2009. The Giants have seen plenty of changes to their roster in that time frame and so too has the staff here on site. There’s a lot of history here, both with the team and with our efforts to write about it.
Despite the changes, there has always been one constant here on site with regards to our goals: to give you folks, our readers, the very best Giants discussion that we possibly can.
Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Giants sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too? Maybe you’re just stumbling across us for the first time and you like what you see. We are looking to add to our staff here on site and this could be your chance to grab a bat and join the team.
We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the team that they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering the minor leagues. Maybe you’re more of a transaction junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing could have. Or maybe you’d rather chip in on series previews, game recaps, or any number of other potential story ideas that could relate to this team.
Writers are asked to contribute a minimum of 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions, but we won’t require it.
We know that for the most part this is primarily a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too. Most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides baseball, right?). This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are simply passionate about the Giants and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.
Want to join us?
Applying is very easy. Head on over and complete an application. It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged) and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give your best. We’ll be in touch from there.
