St. Louis Cardinals: Redbird Rants seeking new writers!
Redbird Rants has held a steady place as FanSided’s home for total St. Louis Cardinals coverage for some time now, dating back to when the site was first launched in March of 2009.
There have been plenty of changes to rosters for the St. Louis Cardinals in that time frame 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 St. Louis Cardinals sports discussion that we possibly can.
I’ve been at the helm as co-editor here at Redbirdrants for over two years now and I can tell you that we love what we do here and have a great time with our writer group. We can never get enough quality writers and that’s why we are renewing this post once more.
Who we are seeking
Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other St. Louis Cardinals 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 bat and join the team.

We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the St. Louis Cardinals 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. Or maybe you just want to chip in on solid series previews, game recaps, or any number of other potential story ideas that could relate to the St. Louis Cardinals.
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 the Cardinals 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?
I can personally assure you that our writers go on to bigger and better things if they are motivated to do so. Any writer who has progressed in his/her career thanks to the work they did at Redbird Rants would tell you that their “promotion” came because of their hard work.
Want to know the type of roles our writers go on to? Here’s a list:
