July And August At Twins Daily: Part 1, Stories
You may think the most exciting recent development around Twins Daily would be the traffic. That’s exciting too, and we’ll get to the traffic numbers later, but they’re a result of an explosion of great writing at Twins Daily. Some of that is from veterans like Cody Christie and Ted Schwerzler, both of whom ranked in the top five our most read writers the last two months. Andrew Thares, who anchored our draft coverage also qualifies for that category, and his reader numbers have tripled over the last year. But I’m not talking about that, either.
Just look at the front page for the last couple of weeks. You’ll find stories from Matt Braun, Cooper Carlson, Thieres Rabelo, Patrick Wozniak, AJ Condon, Sabir Aden and Andrew Gebo. None of them were writing last year. All of them had at least 10,000 people stop by to read their stories over the last two months.
Editor Tom Froemming deserves the lion’s share of the credit for this. Tom has recruited, managed and organized all of this great content, while recording some great Twins videos and being a husband, dad, and provider. I’d sure appreciate it if you would express any gratitude you feel to him in the comments section below.
As a result, you’re hearing a little less from Seth, Nick, Parker and I. And I speak for all of us when I say that is fan-freaking-tastic. Twins Daily's mission is not to provide the four of us a bigger megaphone. It is to provide independent, non-corporate Twins writers a platform that rivals those of legacy media writers. This is something Seth, Nick, Parker and I feel pretty strongly about, having blogged for years with a portion of the attention that corporate media can enjoy.
And with all that content comes a lot of attention. A LOT. We'll get to that in Part 2 tomorrow.
