Dateline, December 16, 2007:
Head football coach, Rich Rodriguez, announces he will leave WVU for the "bigger and better" University of Michigan.
As soon as I heard the news, I searched the web for a good domain name for the website I intended to create in order express my disappointment.
I settled for the domain name, www.thankscoachrod.com.
While creating the site and doing research, I came across Bleacherreport.com.
Since then, the Bleacher Report has become a part of my everyday life (as I know it).
Where else can a person go to get everything he/she needs to know about the world of sports and give his/her personal opinion on a particular article.
The fact is, on the Bleacher Report, a person can even write his/her own article, in a style that helps the everyday sports enthusiasts understand.
In turn, bringing them back for more.
Since becoming a writer and editor for the site, I have come to see how important it is to the readers, to write articles that are informative and entertaining. While editing articles written by other writers, I understand that not all writers have the same writing style. Which gets my attention and makes me want to read more.
I believe that the creators of the site have taken many steps to improve the relationships between writers, editors and readers.
The most recent action: announcing an upcoming feature, that will not only better the site, but also make things easier for the writers, as well as the editors. Consequently, making a huge impact on the readers.
Why would anyone even think about choosing another sports information outlet over the Bleacher Report?
I foresee the sports section of your local newspapers becoming extinct, due to the success of Bleacherreport.com.
So, if you want to make sure that you are always on top of the daily sports news, make the Bleacher Report a part of your daily regimen.
You won't be sorry, and if you are, you can always write an article about Rich Rodriguez, to vent your frustrations.
