Hello! I’m Justin Perez. On October 5, 2020 I signed my 1-year rookie contract with Fansided. As of right now I’m a paid contributor for Puck Prose and I hope to begin my journalism career with the first sports blog I started reading at 15 years old, being Fansided. I hope to create and publish interesting articles for you readers to go through. I’m currently 18 years old living in New Jersey. I will mostly cover the Florida Panthers as they are my favorite team but I hope to write stories on other teams as well. I’m not the perfect writer and I know I will make mistakes but I hope you enjoy the content I put out anyway. Thanks and God Bless!!!

Andrew R,Contributor

I hated hockey when I was a kid. I stopped playing when I was 12, and didn't start again for almost 10 years. When I came back to the game, I had a whole new appreciation for it - a way to connect, share some drama, and have a good time with friends.

We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.

Whatever your goal, FanSided can help your voice be heard. If you are interested in writing for any of our sites, please be sure to check out our openings page and submit a proposal.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
