Hey everybody, my name is Hayden Kim and I am a Eugene, Oregon native.

I've been an avid sports man my entire life, and only a couple years ago--2 years to be exact--I was introduced to B/R and the world of sports writing, and honestly haven't looked back.

Since then, I have amassed thousands of readers, a short stint as a NBA Featured Columnist, publications on LA Times, CBS Sports, etc, and most importantly, a priceless experience that I will never forget.

I am now writing for my school newspaper, the Daily Emerald at the University of Oregon as the Senior Sports Reporter and it's been a priceless experience.

But enough of me. All you need to know about my sports affiliations are that "I Love my Ducks," I am a die-hard Laker fan, and I am a low-key advocate for J.R. Smith.

I look forward to meeting and talking to all of you and I hope I can learn as much from you as you from me. This really is a great platform and I hope all of you take full advantage of it.

My Favorite Quotes are: "Momma there goes that man!" "Hand down, man down!" "Those who do not make mistakes, are those who do not try."

NBA Featured Columnist from September 8, 2010-March 30 2011.

Junior Sports Reporter for Daily Emerald from September 2012-Present.

    Hey Hayden, as far as using full names, you should try to use them in headlines when possible. Using full names will help attract more reads from search engines. Same with early in your article. After using a full name, using a nickname or last name is fine.

    No problem man,

    I'll just cut and paste the exact quote from the B/R style guide:


    We want to use em-dashes (—) instead of double-hyphens (--), en-dashes (–) or any other form of dash. The em-dash is the longest type of dash and is created by typing SHIFT-OPTION-(dash) on a Mac keyboard and ALT-0151 on a PC (hold down ALT while typing 0151 on the numeric keypad).

    (NB: If you're working on a PC without a numeric keypad, you'll have to copy and paste em-dashes as necessary. Here's one to get you started: —)

    There should be no spaces on either side of the em-dash. Proper formatting looks like—this.

    You got it, man. I'm hoping he keeps it up. Should be a fun rest of the season for the Knicks.

    No problem, Hayden! Bynum needs more touches in my opinion.

    Hi Hayden, the simplest would be to copy and paste from the Internet. How about this: ( M dash — )
