Here is a fun bit of trivia. One year ago today I started writing my blog everyday (unless I happened to lose some pieces from earlier days). I know I have more than 365 pieces however and that is because I had written some last summer and fall, but it was not an everyday serious thing. Also, I know that I wrote twice on some days that I got really excited about something (the final four in the Aud). I made it my goal to write 200 words per day, and I pretty much always go over. However, assuming that I did write exactly 200 words every day for the last year, I have written 73,000 words in the last year. That is quite a few words although if I made into a book, it wouldn't quite be an epic novel. Writing is a good habit to get into for anyone, but it is even more important when you are a business and statistics major that doesn't need to write that much otherwise. I didn't want to lose my edge, so I thought and was right that it definitely does help you to constantly write and work at the craft.

After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
