I wanted to take the opportunity to recognize someone today who's celebrating her 1 year anniversary as an OTB writer. She's an integral part of our California team and she consistently pushes out high-quality thought provoking content. I'm thrilled to have her not only as a part of the team, but as a friend.
July's writer of the month award goes to Elizabeth Ninivaggi. She wrote 7 articles for OTB in July including an interview with the Sick Individuals
and a hilarious editorial titled Family Reunion: Dance Music DJ Edition
. You can view all of Elizabeth's articles by clicking the link below:

Elizabeth posted about her experience as an OTB writer on Facebook and I felt like this was a unique opportunity to share a writer's own words, her words, here with you today:
A year ago, I decided to apply for a writing position at a blog that dedicated itself to everything dance music, an outlet I could contribute to so that I could share my love for electronic music with the world.
Only The Beat has changed my life in the most positive way possible - not only have I been able to pursue my career as a writer, but I've met some of my best friends (and more to meet - I'm looking at you Dominique L'Eplattenier and Lauren Hruska) and experienced what some music fanatics would only dream of. From interviewing some of my favorite producers to reliving some of the most amazing nights of my life, I am honored to be a part of such an amazing team (big ups to Daniel Taibleson) that has not only inspired me as a writer, but as a person. I'm a very lucky girl :)
No Elizabeth, we're the lucky ones. Thank you for all of your hard work, and thank all of you who read this blog for supporting us!
