    Hey Michael—Dave Mo here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Cubs page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point analysis...you do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at dmorrison@bleacherreport.com with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Dave Mo

    No, it was good. Most of the time hits are total luck. The first so many hours after it's posted are important, because if people see it, rate it and comment on it, it will be in a prominent place on the site.

    So if people don't happen to see it and other stories do have that happen, your article fades off the front page of MLB before it had a shot.

    Other times, you may find you'll write articles that you aren't as happy with and they'll get way more hits.

    By the way, what time did you post it during the day? If you post around peak hours (5-8 p.m., I'm guessing), it's more likely people will be online to see it in the first few hours it will be up there with whatever tags you gave it.

    But, as I said, definitely keep internet search engines in mind when you write headlines, cuz Google puts crazy weight on what's in them. In fact, the sooner a term is in the headline, the better. If you write a Yankees article, might not be a bad idea to start it with "Yankees Update: This and That Happened" -- something like that.

    If you read another story related to yours, you might want to comment on it and say you had similar (or different) thoughts on the topic in your article, then paste a link. Don't do that unless the articles are very related, of course, cuz that'd be spamming. But if it's relevant there's nothing wrong with doing that at all.

    Good luck getting more hits next time you post.

    Thanks for that edit. I tend to forget what MLB stands for, and that it doesn't need a "the".
