Baseball Digest Daily: How Did This Happen?

Brandon HeikoopSenior Analyst IJuly 12, 2016

On Jan. 28, 2008, I received an email from Dave Rouleau at Baseball Digest Daily asking if I would consider writing for the website. BDD is a site I've been visiting for some time, so obviously I was thrilled about the position.

After asking some brief questions—which admittedly barely played a factor in me taking the gig given the opportunity I was being provided—I gratefully accepted the position.

This is an incredible position for me and one I can't believe I have been offered, after writing for less than two months. Here's my first post, and yes, I was supposed to be doing final assignments.

That aside, for anyone who is reading this and is looking into getting into blogging, check out my article at The Bleacher Report, where I highlight the path I took in order to get to the modest level I am currently at, as well as Alexander Freund's write-up of what BR can offer anyone who is looking to get their foot in the door.

Thank you to everyone who has visited and read my blog, I intend to keep rolling out articles as well as linking the stuff I write at BDD. Especially to those who have sourced my blog at some point (specifically through a reader and some high praise).

If you haven't already, check out my first article at BDD.
