    As a sports writer, I'm still very much a work in progress...

    This is only the second article I've ever written, but I thought I'd share

    http://mlbreports.com/2013/01/04/redsstate/



    This is my first one...

    It looked professional to me. Good job.

    Short, tight sentences, with a nice pace and no typos. You have a high ceiling.

    As one who writes on a constant basis for the web and other media, it was good. I've seen lots of long-time pros put junk out there, but your two articles were professionally done. Bravo!
