Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Report, I'm Keith Harrington.
Yes, I didn't type that wrong! We are going through some changes here at Border Country Sports, with some more potentially coming in the future. More on that at a future date. However, one minor change you will notice starting today is that the Border Country Sports Blog is now the Border Country Sports Report.
I decided to make this change as my site really does fit ore of the definition of a sports report and not a blog. A blog is usually categorized as a diary type of writing. A blog serves as a space to share your story or market your expertise in your own words.
After thinkng about it, that is not really what I do with Border Country. I am more of sports news writer not a blogger. I write about the results of sports events, give you a overview of the events and sometimes interview participants of games I cover. I rarely just write a diary-like post just telling my story or giving my opinion.
Therefore, I have decided to start branding my posts as the Border Country Sports Report! Thanks for your support as always. More to come!
