As we’ve moved into our third day of reporting on spring training, I’ve been continually surprised how interested people are in the work we are doing.
I’ve had several fans and subjects of our stories approach me, asking what I am working on and where they can find the content we publish.
We were told before we left people would be intrigued, would ask questions and would be looking for our work, but I guess I just figured no one would truly care since we are only college students.
I assumed the only way we would actually get traffic on our website and social media sites would be if we pushed the links on them. But from the past few days, I’ve realized how wrong I was.
From the interactions I have had with fans and various subjects, I have seen how eager they are to see what we’re producing. I wouldn’t be surprised if the people we’ve handed our cards to went home that same night and looked up our accounts and website.
They are excited for us and want to read and view our content. It seems like this should have been obvious to me, but I assumed few people outside of our family members would care to see our work.
It just goes to show that people really are hungry for stories and information, and it makes me more hopeful for our futures as journalists.
