Looking for a Few Good Writers

By the Editors

Is writing a creative outlet? Ever dreamt of a being a restaurant critic? Recently become a mom that’s now struggling with work-life balance? Sit on the board of a nonprofit that doesn’t get enough love from local media? Would you love to start a blog – but don’t have time?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you’re in luck – we’re looking for a few new ladies to join our family!

I know, I know – what would I write about? Who cares what I have to say? Isn’t it scary putting yourself out there?

We hear that a lot – but we promise that once you start, it quickly becomes addicting and a lot of fun. We had to “force” a few creative/hilarious friends to take the leap, and they’re now our most frequent contributors. Only a few guidelines/rules to become a “Girl on the Grid”…

  • You must write at least one article a month. We also offer plenty of collaboration articles for months when you’re busy.
  • There are no length requirements but remember to keep your content concise and to the point.
  • You can write on any topic, and the majority of our content falls into two buckets: cheerleading Sacramento and sharing advice/experiences. We also stay away from politics because there’s plenty of other outlets for folks interested in that topic!
  • Original content is key. Your content must be written exclusively for GOTG.
  • If you sit on the board or have any professional/personal connection to your topic, you must disclose it.
  • You must be based in the Sacramento region.

Shoot us an email (girlsonthegrid AT gmail DOT com) and tell us who you are and what you’re interested in writing about. From there, we’ll help you get started and provide any resources to make your life easier! PLUS – we have a managing editor who adds the pictures, hyperlinks and edits each piece…so all you have to focus on is the content.

Learn more here and here – and we look forward to hearing from you!

    I’d love to join the gang. My topic of interest is our schools, not necessarily their dire need for funding (a given), but some day-to-day musings about what’s right and what’s not on our campuses.
    I wear several hats in the school-world: parent of a 7th grader and a sophomore; PTA treasurer at the middle school (present) and PTA president at elementary school (former); teacher of a toddler preschool class (2-year-olds); frequent substitute for a regular pre-school class (3-4 year olds); substitute in K through 6 classes; and occasional Parent Education facilitator — all within the Sac City Unified district. And that’s the short version.
    Thanks for considering me.

      Laurie- I’d love to read your input. I was thinking of writing about schools too.

    Hi There,

    I am interested in this opportunity. I have never blogged before but I love writing and love putting my thoughts on paper or in short, on Facebook. I also enjoy reading blogs from other friends and colleagues who have an interest in the blogging world. It’s humorous and insightful and at times emotional. It would be a great opportunity to expose my thoughts, interests and fun writing.

    Warm Regards,

    Lisette Castillo
