Perhaps the biggest eye-opener for me in building and working with Tales from the American Football League is how important marketing is in your success. It is really quite shocking how little having football history knowledge has to do with running a football history site. Obtaining new readers is all about getting the word out there, and sadly, marketing is not my forte.
However, every so often someone helps me out by contacting me to discuss the AFL, the Chargers, or football memorabilia. That happened recently, when Zach Malone asked me to do an interview for the Chargers fan site, Bolts from the Blue. The interview went live yesterday, and I thought I would share it on Tales from the AFL. Some of the material has been covered before on this site, but the interview gives a pretty good background on how I got into sports, collecting, and writing AFL history. I hope you all enjoy it!!
