One year ago, I published the first post on this blog. I just wanted to have a place to practice my writing and to share some thoughts about something I really enjoy: Formula One.
After writing here for a few months, mostly for family and friends, and getting published in The Gazette, I applied to write for Bleacher Report. They accepted me and, after writing a couple stories for them, they offered me a position as a Featured Columnist.
Not only do I get to work with a great editor and team of writers, but now I also make a bit of money for doing something I love. It doesn’t get much better than that…oh, wait…yeah it does: my application is in for media accreditation for the Canadian Grand Prix next month!
Bleacher Report has helped me improve my writing, and also provided a lot more exposure for it—my average article on B/R gets about three times as many views as this blog has, ever. And I’ve gotten to interview David Brabham, Bruno Senna and some German law professors (thanks, Bernie!).
I can’t wait to see what the next year brings! Thanks for reading and enjoy the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend.
