8th June 2009
When it comes to running content day in and day out on sports, the biggest challenge is finding information, doing your analysis, and getting the piece(s) published in a timely manner.
As most anyone will tell you, information is power, and in authoring content across the Business of Sports Network of sites, as well as freelancing, the biggest challenge is that first part: finding solid information.
That used to be done in one exersise each and every day — the trudging through approx. 100 bookmarks, and doing a hefty bit of search engine work.
But, recently, I have added the social networking tool Twitter to the arsenal, and have found it an invaluable tool.
The thing is, I got more than that.
I’m a social creature in an often times, non-social world. Having your eyes and hands strapped to a laptop for long periods can wear one out. Twitter allows one to get info, and do a bit of social dabbling. For me, that involves my interests in music (been playing guitar for what seems like forever now), and autism awareness due to my son Travis. Twitter bridges that gap.
If you are interested in what’s happening with me on Twitter, take a peak at the widget below as it updates in realtime.
