Hello, from another new contributor :)

Posted by Margie in OHD news |

Since Charles introduced himself to you all, I felt it would be appropriate for me to do the same.

My name is Margie and I will be covering men’s basketball, or, shooty hoops as Vico likes to call it in the Twitterverse. I also manage a blog called Life in the Cheap Seats. It’s nowhere near as prominent as this one so this is far from a sales pitch. However, I know that a few of my readers also read OHD, so if you were wondering if this was the same Margie, you guessed right.

I am a 2010 graduate of The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s in Journalism. During my time at OSU, I was a sports writer for The Lantern. My beats were swimming and diving, synchronized swimming, rowing, gymnastics and the football recruit class of 2009. Though the sports I focused on aren’t the most popular Buckeye teams, they are just as important to the University as the big-money squads. I felt every student-athlete deserved representation, and working with them made me a better writer overall.

Because I spent my senior year focusing more on my social life than my professional career, I decided to pursue a Master’s degree. I felt this extra “push” was appropriate to help me figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Now, I am a quarter the way through a graduate PR program at Kent State, and I still haven’t figured it out. All I know is that I love what I’m doing and any extra chance to keep writing is an opportunity worth taking.

I thank Vico for allowing me to use my talents, and I hope you all enjoy what I have to contribute. I appreciate any and all comments because they tell me how you feel and also enhance the blog itself.

Have a wonderful day and Go Bucks!

    Welcome to the asylum, Margie. Looking forward to your articles. Good luck at KSU – and beyond.

    +1 for joining the staff on an amazing Buckeye blog.
    -1 for missing the opportunity to use the phrase “taking my talents to OHD” in your only opportunity to do so.

    But you can regain your +1 and get a bonus +1 if you use the words “The Donnie” while discussing shootyhoops.

    Welcome aboard.

    Actually, I used “taking my talents to OHD” when I posted this on my Twitter and Facebook page, so all is not lost.

    Thank you both for your welcoming comments :)

    Glad to have you on board… even if you’re consorting with a known n’er do well from the south.
