Every once in a while, we get an email from a contributor that we just have to share with the rest of the community. This time, that email came from Ace Writer William McCoy.
William has been writing with us since 2010, but we had no idea what writing for DMS was giving him the opportunity to do. Here’s what he had to say.
Dear DMS Team,
This email is long overdue, but with the holiday break just around the corner, I wanted to take a minute to send you a quick note.
The first reason for my email is to thank you for the opportunities DMS provides and how appreciative I am of some of the programs that are in place. When I wrote for the Studio in 2010 and 2011, I occasionally felt anonymous, but the introduction of the Ace Writers Club earlier this year completely changed that. I love not only the generous bonuses, but also the expanded queues, swag bags, recognition and general feeling that being a member provides. I’ve always tried to generate high-quality content, but this club has consistently been extra motivation to not only provide lots of content, but ensure it’s up to snuff.
Secondly, I wanted to briefly share how working for DMS has enabled me to work toward my dream of visiting every major league and minor league stadium across the continent. So far, I’ve been to 53 stadiums and have had a number of wonderful experiences. If not for my work with the Studio, I wouldn’t be able to travel nearly as much for this passion of mine. Each summer, I spend a few weeks on the road and combine writing for the Studio in the day with going to games at night. In my mind, it’s an ideal example of a key benefit of working for DMS.
All the best to you and your family for the holidays,
