I get to write about the New York Yankees. I have been a fan ever since I can remember. I would watch baseball with my grandfather growing up. It was how we bonded and I have never let go of baseball or the Yankees. Now it is something I share with my own children. It is a combination of two of my passions. I do this because I really want to... because I love to do it. It makes me genuinely happy.
On Friday, I got a shoutout from An A-Blog for A-Rod for a piece I wrote on Curtis Granderson titled IS CURTIS GRANDERSON REALLY TRADE BAIT? The shoutout is HERE.
This made me do a little Charlie Brown dance of happiness when I read it because:
- I have been reading this blog for a while
- I respect the blog writer and the content they put out
- it really is awesome to me that a known and liked blogger noticed my piece.
Blogs like An A-Blog for A-Rod, BYB and a few others, continue to change the way fans interact. It gives a voice to the fans. As the community of Yankees fans who write and read blogs continue to grow, the content continues to get better. I feel very honored to be among these blog writers. They are incredibly talented.
So, thanks for the shoutout and here's to continued success... the bloggers are taking over!
