Fantasy Basketball Opinions, Strategy & Tips

It’s Time to go PRO…

Posted by Erik on January 9, 2009

Even though I started Points in the Paint as an experiment in an exercise to see if I could find a niche in the blogging universe for me to possibly “cash in” on something I enjoyed discussing (fantasy basketball), it turned out transmogrifying into a labor of love, a hobby of passion, a fountain of fulfillment – let’s stop there before things start to get melodramatic.

At some point, PitP, as some guys refer to this blog for short became a true outlet where I got to learn how to write and allow my not-universally-accepted humor to shine. I knew I had things to say and some of it had value to some people out there, but I never expected or dreamed that my thoughts, fantasy-madman rantings, and sometimes no-nonsense opinions would be appreciated by this many people. All of that changed my perspective on what I was really doing here. The respect I got from the community I found myself being a part of became food for my low self-esteemed psyche.

It is now a new year – a time for new beginnings… I will now be writing for the fantasy basketball blogging awesomeness known as Give Me The Rock. It was just amazing to be accepted by the one of the foremost fantasy basket-blogging authorities in the net.

Here is my first post on GMTR a few days back.

Points in the Paint is and will always be my baby and first blogging home and love. She will be migrating from wordpress.com, which has been a wonderful NBDL for me and my blogging, to Bloguin.com where I will be in the elite company of some fantastic blogs. It’s currently under construction.

When the new blog over at bloguin rises, expect some new and different things from me and PitP. I will be venturing into the uncharted (for me) waters of podcasting and will be inviting a “fantasy guru” to discuss fantasy basketball on the site.

So to everyone who likes what they’ve read, whether you agree with my thought or not, keep up with the latest from me over at GMTR and the soon to rise PitP!
