If you haven’t seen the “Better Know An Affiliate” series– and judging by the numbers, you haven’t– it’s dead now. I lost interest in it, it didn’t put the hit out I thought it would, and here we are as a people. If I didn’t get to your team…deal with it or do it yourself.
Plus, as I’m wont to do, the lovely existential dread that comes with thinking about the populous when it comes to getting views and hits and all that shit that makes the internet world go ’round. I mean, hell– I’m 36 and I’m sure if I hadn’t made it to a higher level by now– odds are it won’t happen for one reason or another. I don’t network well with others, which is probably the main reason so I don’t get a lead on things opening up.
But moving forward– what can you expect??
First, I think more open with opinionated pieces. I’m not going to try and censor myself when writing things out, but I’m not going to go overboard on it. When you start to cater things to what other sites will pick up on, then you write a certain way that they’ll think is best for the reflection of what they link….I think. Whatever. But I’m just going to let things flow more and have a stream of thought– so expect it not to make sense at times like a Randy Savage promo.
Second, I’ll be doing game stories from North Dakota again this year, but I’ll try what I can to give a weekend review of the Maryland Black Bears games since we promote them with the Chesapeake Hockey Week and the photos by Jonny P on a weekly basis– why not more coverage?? Maybe the NAHL can love us.
Third, possibly more coverage that’s non-hockey. Music, NASCAR, bowling, personal things– whatever I think I can write about– I’ll do it. I’ve got to realize that this is MY blog and I’ll put things I want on it. If people want input on what I write– pay your boy.
Overall, I just need to get back to my roots and what got me what little notoriety that I’ve carried over now. Just be me rather than what I think this industry wants out of me. Like I said, if I haven’t made it big with a bigger corporation by now– probably won’t happen so why not just go all out??
