When I was first approached about joining up with The Dagger, it was before it even existed. I attended a get together/outdoor movie night at Brian’s and ended up indoors most of the time chatting with Brian and Matt about this odd idea for an indescribable website. They asked if I wanted to join up and I agreed. Although now I can say I said yes thinking one of two things would happen: 1.) they would never even start the site; and 2.) if the site were started, I wouldn’t write anyway because I am too lazy.
Fast forward a year and I’m more involved than I thought I would ever be. Not only am I writing, but helping make decisions as well. Kind of scary, huh? What The Dagger has meant to me, and others, over the past year can’t be described in words. But here it goes. It’s been a great source of information for a community that demands to know anything and everything about itself. It has also been an amazing writing escape for me personally. In case nobody has figured it out yet, I write when I want and about whatever I want (hence the mattress tag, wine reviews, movie reviews and other odd stories like the one on LARPing).
Bottom line, The Dagger has become what I never could foresee it becoming: a legitimate news and entertainment source with a loyal readership. To this day it blows my mind. I feel honored to be able to write for all of you readers and hopefully interest at least a few of you. This website has evolved greatly over the past year and it is exciting to think what it will be by this time next year.
