For those who might be unaware there was a time when I was "helping" out another site not only get off the ground, but remain functioning. Unfortunately due in part to the financial feasibility that comes with maintaining a website the sports site known as OTBsportsnetwork.com went to the website graveyard. However, as the old saying goes when "one door closes another opens" and that is exactly how we got here as the next step for not just OTB, but Wrestling Express has arrived. I know I don't mention it here but thank you to everyone who has invested into this project with me I appreciate you more than you know as you made this possible.
Recently on social media I have been teasing a "major announcement" pushing the end to a mystery that only few people know about at this point. The reason that only a handful of people know about what the announcement is based on the fact that they are involved in the project. But after months of hard work I think it's time to finally explain what exactly we have been working on and why. Basically following the end of On the Bleachers as a website I decided that we could move everyone over to blogger just to allow both OTB to continue and give those who still wanted to write the opportunity to do so. Now I did bring the OTB_WWE to my wrestling site, but that's just because it was easier for me to have her go there instead of here as it would help me. Either way though we getting away from the point a little while after the new OTB started I found a way to put together a magazine where it wouldn't be super expensive.
From there I got on sending DM's to the former writers to try and get an idea on how many people would be interested in writing about sports in a magazine. Surprisingly a decent number of people were interested in writing and though it was a little much at first it got easier once I took it one thing at a time. I wrote a number of articles to balance out the others that my fellow writers came up with but with me writing it was difficult to give much direction to those who needed some help and it suffered. But things changed and in reality started to snowball once I got my articles done and could start to focus on other things and now we see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Before I continue let me explain something as some of you might be wondering why I just picked a random assortment of people to help with the magazine instead of having a process.
