I haven’t been able to write about the Phillies as much as I would like. If you have read my writing before, then you know how passionate I am about this ball club. If you haven’t had a chance to read my writing before, check it out, I think it’s pretty good. With today being the one year anniversary of the launch of Prosportsnotes.com or PSN, I figured I needed to give you guys a 100% original and honest piece.
This article has no real agenda. I had the idea for this and sent a message to my editor. He said go for it. Well, here I am, writing an article about my experience with PSN after year 1.
The anniversary of my first published job
One year ago, PSN gave me the opportunity every writer dreams about. The opportunity to put my words down and have a place where people could read them. Whether or not you agreed with my opinions, they were out there for everyone to read. One year ago, PSN gave me the opportunity to write about my favorite baseball team, the Philadelphia Phillies. A team that I grew up rooting for, a team that I saw win a World Series, and a team that I saw fall to the bottom depths of the division.
I guess you could say that PSN’s birthday is today? I would probably just call it the anniversary of the site’s launch. At least until the site turns 5 or 6. Never the less, on an anniversary people normally give presents. So I ask you PSN, what do you want for our 1 year? Before you ask if I’ve lost my mind, yes I’m aware that no one is going to answer that question. However, I’d like to think that I know exactly what PSN wants.
PSN wants the best Phillies coverage in the world. PSN wants writers who are just as passionate to write about opening day as they are to write about game 134. And PSN wants its readers to feel like their opinion matters.
I really hope you aren’t sitting there asking how this relates to the Phillies. But, if you are, I’m going to connect it. PSN gave me a platform to share my thoughts and opinions. Those thoughts and opinions just so happened to be about the Phillies. Honestly, if you know me personally, then you know that ALL of my thoughts and opinions are about the Phillies. I leave, eat, breathe, and sleep the Phillies. It’s a lot easier now after the off-season additions (WINK WINK Bryce Harper).
I was here writing for PSN after the Phillies hired Gabe Kapler. I was here when the Phillies were in first place in the NL East. That was until they had a massive collapse at the end of the season. I’ve been here throughout the entire Harper/Machado sweepstakes trying to break the news for you guys, here at PSN.
With all of that being said, I want to thank you guys, the readers. Without you, I would basically just be writing a personal journal. That journal would probably be filled with a lot more curse words, but that isn’t the point. The point is, I have the privilege to write down my thoughts and have you guys read them.
2019 is going to be a big year for PSN and the Phillies. It all starts with you guys the fans. Reach out to me, tell me what you want to read. I want to bring you guys the best Phillies content in the world. All of that content will be right here, at PSN.
