Some guys you’ll just find are naturally large. They’re born with a silver spoon in their mouth. They’ve always been that way. It’s never concerned them that they’re not athletic. It’s never concerned them that they have no social skills. It’s never concerned them that they can’t get a girlfriend. It never has. That’s just the way they are. Unfortunately, they end up surrounded by people who need help with math and reading. So they grow up to be idiots who waste their lives playing video games and watching TV. Just kidding. They grow up to be Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. No really. Bill and Steve. I hope you’re all sitting down. OK, so maybe they don’t turn out to be famous geniuses. But they sure as hell become famous for something.
This doesn’t have to happen. There’s more than one way to be large and successful. You don’t have to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth to know what to do with your life. You don’t even have to be a man. Women can be just as influential, if not more so. Sometimes it’s the family you choose that determines how successful you’ll be in life. But no one should ever be discouraged from pursuing their dreams simply because they don’t fit into the mold of a “normal” person. You’ll never know what kind of brilliant person you’ll meet – or what kind of amazing opportunities you could miss out on – if you don’t explore the possibility of being a large person.
So, who is this large person you’re talking about? The answer is… me. And let me tell you, I am definitely not your typical NBA fan. I’ll bet you’re reading this and wondering right now… is this guy for real? Where do I sign up? Let me rephrase that… how do I get started? Don’t be put off by my appearance. I’ve been called many things in my life, but “jolly” is not one of them. I’m actually quite the opposite. I’m quite the opposite of jolly. But that’s what makes me, me. Because there’s more than one way to skin a cat… or in this case, a guy. (sorry, couldn’t help myself)
You see, I grew up in a sports-obsessed family. My father and brother are both extremely competitive individuals, which led me to develop an early love for sports. I played baseball in high school, and even after my playing days were over, I continued to follow the sport closely. When the 2000s came along and the NBA began expanding its reach online, I saw an opportunity and I jumped at it. I started an online sports magazine to provide people like myself – who are more interested in the science behind the sports rather than the outcomes – with the information we need to form better opinions. So if you’re interested in sports and you want to get into the blogging game, I can definitely see why you’d want to do this. But if all you want to do is bet on sports, there are plenty of places where you can do that as well.
Blogging is the best choice for a number of reasons. To begin with, it’s very easy to get started with. You simply need an account with a service like WordPress, which is where this blog is hosted. From there, you can easily pick up where you left off before taking a break. You can also use tools like Google Docs to collaboratively work on documents with other people. When you’re working on an article, you can easily share it with a friend or other bloggers, allowing for more people to get involved in the conversation surrounding a given topic.
While blogging is certainly an option, it’s not necessarily the best choice for everyone. If you’re looking to make money off your blog, you’re going to have to undertake some serious monetizing efforts. Otherwise, you’ll be lucky to make enough to cover your expenses. That being said, if you can find a way to make money from your blog… even just a little bit… even if it’s just enough to cover your expenses, it’s worth it.
What else makes blogging so great? In one word – flexibility. You can literally do anything you want with a blog. You don’t necessarily need to have a specific theme or template in mind when you start out. You can use any theme or template you want for your site, as long as you keep up with the required updates. If you do try out a specific theme, you’ll inevitably run into problems down the line. When that happens, it’s usually a hassle to go back and fix it. You can literally do anything with a WordPress blog, including add custom designs and features, switch the theme, or even start a whole new blog entirely.
The bottom line is this: if you can, try out a WordPress blog and see how much easier – and more fun – it is to manage your own content rather than hire someone to do it for you. Unless you’re planning on making money off your blog (and even then, it’s easier to monetize an established site), you might not always want to go the traditional route and hire a professional writer to churn out content for you.
Well, why not? If you’re reading this, I assume you’re either a sports fan yourself or someone who knows one, so there’s no point in hiding it. But for the record, I’m not a huge fan of any particular sport. I’m actually quite the opposite. I don’t get involved in the outcome of the games, but I do follow them closely, especially when playing against my favorite team, the Atlanta Braves. (Go Braves!)
Back to the question at hand… why Sports? There are so many different options when it comes to the topic of sports and betting, especially since the growth of the digital world. Those who are naturally drawn to sports and betting will have plenty of options to choose from. The only reason I mention blogging is because it’s such an easy option to get started with, and for anyone who’s interested in sports and betting, it’s a great place to start. It’s also amazing how many people who are not directly connected to sports can still be so fascinated by it. I mean, the Atlanta Braves… I’m not ashamed to say I’m a bit of a Braves fan. But even people who aren’t fans have heard of them. That’s pretty cool. Just goes to show you what an influential team they’re been in American sports.
If you’re looking for a career in sports or betting, the options are endless. You could work for a sportsbook or casino, place wagers on games you find interesting, or cover the NCAA for a major sports network. I’m sure there’s something out there for everyone. If you’re looking for inspiration, just search the web for “top blogs within the sports genre” and you’ll come up with a variety of ideas to choose from. There are plenty of well-established sports blogs out there, so you’re sure to land on something that will spark your interest. Good luck out there.
