- A National Examiner is a freelancer who is looking for a large audience and enjoys informing others about subjects they love. Ideally, you’ll become the authoritative guide to your specific topic. You’ll become a household name and eventually, someone will name an appliance after you. You’ll be a regular on the talk show circuit and if you hurry, you’ll make it to Larry King Live.

You’ll have the paparazzi watching as you order dinner with Guy Fieri at T.G.I. Fridays. Does it get any better!
