Below is the second article I wrote for Factinate. Chronologically, this one comes third but it is the second that the site has posted. I am not sure how much longer I will continue with the venture but I figured I will post the work that I complete.
At the very least, the venture brings in some extra money but I am hoping I can leverage it for something greater. As of now, I at least have an article published on something other than my own blog. As they say, “progress, not perfection.”
Update: Late last year I met up with a friend who works for Factinate. He was gracious enough to offer me a position as a writer for the site, compiling listicles. The gig doesn’t dictate an amount of articles per week/month etc. and I am excited to try to get something published online, aside from my own blog. The factinate articles will either be pop-culture related or general research articles, which span a variety of topics ranging from history, politics, geography etc.
These topics and the site as a whole may not align directly with my creative writing interests but it is still an opportunity that I am thankful for.
I will repost any of my factinate articles to this site, but I do also recommend checking out the site since there are a lot of interesting articles (they’re not paying me to say that).
