OTB Writer of the Month | June 2014
We have a lot of amazing people on our team here at Only The beat that keep this site running. A lot of them operate behind the scenes, some in front, but regardless of what they do here at OTB, I want to make sure we’re giving recognition where recognition’s due. As the CEO of Only The Beat, I’m kicking things off this month by recognizing one writer who’s gone above & beyond (pun intended) his basic duties to help elevate us to a higher level, which is ultimately where we want to be: Your #1 source for thought provoking and life changing electronic dance music content.
I recently did a podcast interview with the Final Clock Out where I talked about my entrepreneurial journey and the struggles I’ve faced while building Only The Beat. Throughout the interview I talk a lot about our team, and how important each persons individual contribution is to the overall success of the site. Success is never a solo endeavor. I could never have done any of this alone, and every night before I go to sleep I remind myself to be thankful for the passionate people I have around me, and consider myself even luckier to call them my friends.
Another thing I mentioned in the interview is that OTB is going to start put a large emphasis on supporting and showcasing our writers moving forward. Eventually we will build this directly into our website (something I talk a bit about as well), but for now, I feel like the best way to recognize our Writer of the Month will be through a series of blog posts, one each month, this being the first.
June’s writer of the month award goes to one of our PNW reporters Matt Jager. Matt put together a series of Paradiso artist spotlights that eventually turned into what we called the Paradiso Spotlight Portal; I’d encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already. His work is consistently high quality and his passion is rivaled only by his skill.
Thank you for all of your hard work Matt, and thank all of you who read this blog for supporting us!
