This will be the most personal thing I have ever put out there for the world to see. My 2017 has been a very interesting year to say the least. I’m lucky to have such a wonderful family, great friends, and the opportunity to share my own adventures. I was able to start my own blog “The Wrestle Times” in July of 2017. It honestly started as a hobby and a way to connect with other pro wrestling fans, but it grew into much more. I have met some incredible fans, like myself, and I’m developing some incredible friendships along the way. I literally knew nothing about starting my own website and damn sure didn’t have a clue where to start, but I jumped into the mix and decided to give it a try for fun.
September of 2017 was a moment that changed everything for me and my outlook on my blog. Scorebig.com had ranked me in the Top 50 Sports Blogs at number 47. Needless to say I was shocked, humbled and had a whole new perspective on the future of my blog. My fellow fans, friends and family not only read and enjoyed my blog, but it became noticed by people around the world and I was in the top 50! Now I had a sense of responsibility, accomplishment, and for the first time ever, a real true purpose and reason to keep going other than it being a hobby for me. So I busted ass and put out more content, interacted a lot more with the readers, and even made a FaceBook account.
Then something amazing happened after all the hard work in late October. Scorebig had ranked me at number 20 of the Top 50. At this point I have gained more followers than I ever thought was possible. I love doing this, people enjoy it, and being a writer for WWE has been a dream of mine for years so why not go for it? I couldn’t think of a good reason not to chase my dream so I applied to WWE for a writing position (didn’t get it, Yet) and continued to really work hard on my blog and the content.
As 2017 has come to an end I have found myself ranked at number 4 on the Top 50 list and networking now more than ever with several Independent Pro Wrestling Promoters in my area. The goal is to start there as a writer for them and move up the ranks in 2018 as a well known independent pro wrestling writer. Working for WWE is now more than just a dream. I’m personally making it a potential reality. Nothing worth having ever comes easy and in 2018 I will be pushing hard to make my dream come true.
As always THANK YOU all for reading, supporting, and being a part of 2017 with me. Lets see what 2018 brings us and hopefully all our dreams come true!
