2017 has been a big year for me. It’s been a year of action. I always talked about working out, but 2017 I acted and got it done. I’ve always talked about writing. I acted and started this blog. I’ve always talked about doing a podcast/youtube channel. That is in motion just gathering up equipment to get it done.
Some people ask why I started writing?
Well, as my friends can attest to, I’ve always been one to debate about sports. Sometimes it gets a little too much, but it’s because I’m passionate about sports (mostly Packers, Patriots, Red Sox, Brewers). I’ve been following Barstool Sports for a couple years now and my goal was to somehow get in touch with them. Some of you are probably thinking that I’m dumb for even considering trying to work for them. Or some of you are probably thinking it won’t happen. Well, 2017 is my action year. This is my call to action.
That’s where I need your help.
They’re not a conventional company by any means. It’s not like you can just submit an application online to try to get hired. You have to try to stand out and get their attention to even talk to someone. I’ve watched videos of people that just walk into their offices expecting to get hired. I’ve also watched videos of crazy stuff people have done and gotten hired. I don’t have the time or resources to fly out there to make my pitch.
What do I have?
I have you guys. So, I’ve tried to DM them. I’ve tried to reach out on twitter through tweeting at them. Doesn’t work because they probably get a crazy amount of tweets everyday.
What do I need from you?
Whether you have Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, I need you to spam them by sharing this site. That means going to their pages and just telling them to check it out. I know that I’m not perfect by any means as far as my writing, but that’s why I believe it’d be a perfect fit.
Who to contact?
Well most people who follow Barstool know Pres (Dave Portnoy). They also know Big Cat, PFT, KFC, etc. As much as I would like to get their attention, it’s probably more feesable to try and get the attention of Young Pageviews, Jared Carrabis, Kmarko, Trent, etc. If you look them up on any of the platforms, you will be able to find them.
Why am I asking this?
I have found a new joy in writing everyday. I’m not old, but I’m not getting any younger. I want to at least take a shot at doing something more in life. Something that I can reach an audience that enjoys reading my articles.
Now, I’m not sure how this is going to work. It may fail miserably and I won’t be able to get enough people to help out. What I do know is shooter’s shoot. This is me taking my shot. Ask your friends. Ask your followers. I want to try to get as much exposure to them as I possibly can.
I want to thank everybody, in advance. I also want to thank everybody that reads my blogs everyday or every week. It may sound petty, but this has already changed my life.
