Tampa Bay Lightning: Bolts by the Bay is looking for contributors

Bolts by the Bay, FanSided’s home for Tampa Bay Lightning discussion, is looking for paid contributors!


Bolts by the Bay has steadily grown as FanSided’s home for Tampa Bay Lightning coverage since the site was first launched. The Lightning have experienced a wide range of success and failure during that time, and the team here on site has been there to cover it all.

That has always been our goal here at Bolts by the Bay: To give our readers the very best Lightning discussion that we possibly can.

Currently, the team is preparing to chase history as it attempts to three-peat as Stanley Cup champions! We want to hit each and every noteworthy topic with a full head of steam. We also need to get ready for what promises to be an offseason of the utmost importance.

We need your help to do that.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Lightning sites with regularity? Ever wonder if you should write about the team yourself? We are looking to add to our group of contributors and this could be your chance to join the team.

Role Description

We like to let our team write about the aspects of the Lightning that they are most passionate about. Maybe you’re more of a transaction junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing could have. Perhaps you just want to chime in on current events. You may even want to show respect to the historical figures who paved the way. No matter what your pertinent interests may be, there could be a place for you here on the team at Bolts by the Bay!

Contributors are asked to write one post per month. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We understand that everyone has their own motivation for wanting to write about their favorite team. No matter what your reason is, this is a chance to join a team of writers who are simply passionate about the Lightning and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us?

Submitting a proposal is easy. Just head on over FanSided.com/Join to submit your proposal today! 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 it your best.

Please also include a pertinent writing sample to reflect your current knowledge of the Lightning. This can be an original article written exclusively for the purpose of your proposal or an existing article published elsewhere.

Once you have submitted your proposal, we’ll be in touch from there.

Want your voice heard? Join the Bolts By The Bay team!
