Share your story: Join the Yahoo! Contributor Network

Would you like to share your personal insights or stories from your community with Yahoo! News readers? Join the Yahoo! Contributor Network, a platform that allows writers, photographers and videographers to share their knowledge and passion with millions of people worldwide — and earn money doing it.

Yahoo! News has many content providers, but we want to make sure that you have an opportunity to tell your story as well. What newsworthy events are happening in your state? How is your family affected by the recession or the latest piece of legislation? What's your take on the biggest stories of the day? These are the kinds of insights we want you to share through the Yahoo! Contributor Network.

Here are stories we've featured from readers and contributors like you:

Your memories of major events: Eyewitness to space shuttle history

Interviews with experts: Q&A: Does troop withdrawal spell defeat in Afghanistan?

First-person experiences with big news stories: Behind the numbers: Struggle continues for unemployed

Commentary and opinion: Who's to blame for high gas prices?

Stories about your city or state: The Lucky Ones: A near-miss from the Joplin tornado
