New Orleans Sports: Big Easy Believer Seeks New Writers


Big Easy Believer has held a steady place as FanSided’s home for total New Orleans Sports coverage for some time now, dating back to when the site was first launched in June of 2013. There have been plenty of changes to New Orleans sports rosters in that timeframe and plenty of changes to the staff here as well. There’s a lot of history here, both with the teams and with our efforts to write about them.

Despite the changes, there has always been one constant here with regards to our goals: to give you folks, our readers, the very best New Orleans sports discussion that we possibly can.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other New Orleans Sports 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 and this could be your chance to grab a helmet and join the team.

More from Big Easy Believer


We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the teams they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering one or all New Orleans area teams. Maybe you’re more of a transaction junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing could have. Or maybe you just want to chip in on series previews, game recaps, or any number of other potential story ideas that could relate to the team’s Big Easy Believer covers.

Writers are asked to contribute a minimum of 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We know that for most 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 factor into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides sports, right?). This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just passionate about New Orleans Sports and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Seeking a bigger opportunity? 

Think the Staff Writer role isn’t quite enough of a challenge for you? Have enough passion about this team and think you can be a help in leading the site and further building this community? There is a unique opportunity for a motivated individual to join our team as a co-editor.

Such a role is going to be much more involved than what we lay out above, both in terms of overall expectations and the benefits you’ll see for said efforts. It can be a great opportunity for someone looking to establish their voice on a great platform covering this team year-round.

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 it your best. We’ll be in touch from there.
