Hey Matt, just checking in to see if you are still interested in covering the Wings here at Bleacher Report. We could really use your leadership back in the Wings section.
Hey Matt—Max Tcheyan here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.
I've been spending time on our Redwings 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts.
Thanks so much,
I see you've been AWOL for a little while. I was wondering if I could talk to you about something?
Hopefully the Wings are able to hold on to a victory in the next game, but I was wondering about the Wings' community here on B.R.?
The heads and I are considering expansion (including more team CLs), but we want to ensure the strength of the ones here first. That being said, how's the Wings stuff on B.R. going, and are there any plans for the offseason?
Get back to me Matt :)
OK, I have a question for you and I want you to remember Mr. Spock's words from the first Star Trek movie, "I have no ego to bruise." I graduated with a minor in Journalism in 1990 and haven't done much writing for news since then, I basically concentrated my efforts in broadcasting. I'm thinking about getting either a part-time writing, editing position or going freelance. In your opinion, do I have what it takes, honestly? Or is this just a pipe-dream I'm thinking about. What do you think. I really don't want to be laughed to scorn by going after this. Let me know and thanks.
I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.
Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.
Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Matt!
Glad everything checks out, Matt. Keep the good stuff coming. RA
