This breaks my heart. Examiner.com was the place I got my strong foothold in online journalism back in January 2009 covering the San Francisco 49ers. That’s three seasons covering the team and I wrote a ton of pieces and traveled to a lot of places. Here is the link to my page which is still up right now.
I understand the reason for the change and it’s part of the business. I still miss covering the team and some of my best writing was from my time with Examiner.com.
So long Exmainer.com. Thank you for giving me the platform to cover the 49ers, attend practices and games, and meet the players and coaches. The experience was life-changing.
