New Columnist Saying Hello

Postby heyrook_nicepiece » Wed Mar 05, 2008 7:54 pm

Greetings all

I'm going to be writing a weekly column for the Cafe starting this week. My first column should be up in the next few days. I'm brand new to the cafe, so I thought I should say hello and introduce myself. My column is going to be something a little different from everything else on this site. It's a humor column tracking my first attempt at playing fantasy baseball. The first column is an introduction, but after that I will be writing each week soliciting advice from all of you and tracking my progress. I'll be making fun of myself and my failures a lot on my way to almost certain mediocrity. I hope everyone will like it. I've written columns before, but never anything exactly like this.

Anyways, just thought I'd get a post out there before the column was put up so I can say hello. I look forward to getting to know you all and I hope you enjoy the articles. Please (constructively) criticize me if you don't, as I want to improve my writing and please pass it along to your leaguemates and friends if you do like it. I can use all the help I can get.

- Toby

Thanks, it's nice to be here. My screen name has a funny story behind it. Assuming I'm popular enough to stay around for a few columns, I'll share it a little down the road...

Anyone who voluntarily writes for this rabid pack of dogs must have heart. I wish you well, and I look forward to your articles. ;-D



And I'm kidding about the rabid pack of dogs thing. Mostly they're like rabid squirrels.

I'm kinda confused as why you're picking a site youve never been on to write a weekly column for but I'm interested to read them nonetheless. Welcome ;-D
