Hello Everybody! I’m Dante Nelson and I’m excited to join the writing staff here at The Sixer Sense. First of all I would like to thank Sean for the opportunity to write here. I plan on bringing my knowledge of the 76ers to the table. I’ve been watching them since the 2000-2001 season; yup the trip to the NBA Finals. I’m just going to tell you about my credentials and writing experience.
Right now, I’m a contributor at Hardcourt Mayhem lead by Josh Dhani. Back when the site had a blog network, I was the Washington Wizards correspondent. The network had a crash and had to go to just its regular blog. Josh wanted me to stay on so I’m hanging around there, writing a post every once in a while.
Sean stated in a previous post that I’ve got my own two sites. They are both not on my full domain so the web address for National Sixers would be “nationalsixers.wordpress.com” and Dante’s Opinion “dantesopinion.wordpress.com. The reason why I named the site “National Sixers” was to give tribute to the Syracuse Nationals, the team that the Philadelphia 76ers used to be known as. Not many people talk about them much but I’m just that big of a fan of their team: past, present, and future. Dante’s Opinion is just my take on what’s going on in the news or what I think about a certain subject. That’s not really a sports site but you’re free to check it out.
There is one more place I’ve done some writing and that’s at Liberty Ballers. Now the thing about Liberty Ballers is that I have only done Fan Posts there. So I was not a real contributor. Yet, that’s where I started out my writing path. From there, Josh liked my work and I went to Hardcourt Mayhem and now I’m here. I see that the new feature here at Sixer Sense is the Guest Post thing which is pretty much the same as a fan post at Liberty Ballers. From personal experience, I can say that it is definitely a good idea to try it out. You can use it to perfect your writing skills just like I did.
So that’s me. Again, I’m really excited about this new role for me and looking forward to sharing Sixer stuff with the Sixer Sense community. Here are the links to see my other writing stuff so you can get an idea of what I’m about. I’m still growing as a blogger and I’m sure this is a great place to do it.
Dalanel is my user name at SB Nation; where Liberty Ballers is a part of the network there. For Hardcourt Mayhem, you may need to look for me there. Not much of a search system for authors. The link will take you to my most recent story there.
