Farewell and Good Luck!

In AC News, News on February 6, 2011 at 10:40 pm

All good things must come to an end…

This is my final post for The AC Weekly. I want to thank you for reading, participating, and keeping up with the latest news about Associated Content over the years!

As most of you know, I’ve been writing for Associated Content by Yahoo! since 2006 and started this blog about three years ago. I launched this blog because at that time, AC writers didn’t have many places to network and get to know each other. This was before AC was on Twitter, had a Facebook presence, and before the Official Associated Content Blog was created.

My goal was to create a community of writers, provide the latest news about AC, and interview outstanding Contributors and staff members.

My mission has been accomplished 🙂

The AC/Yahoo! Community has evolved so much since 2007, and we now have a dedicated blog on the Yahoo! Contributor Network that will feature Contributors, offer writing tips and inform of us of the latest happenings on the YCN grid.

Thank you again for your loyalty and continued support. It’s been wonderful getting to know you all!

I am still an active Contributor on AC/Yahoo! and you can follow my writing-related (and other) updates on Twitter: @sabahk.

I will be leaving this blog up for anyone interested in reading the archives, and for looking back at the amazing changes at Associated Content over the past few years.

In the words of Garrison Keillor, “be well, do good work, and keep in touch.”

He’s a stay-at-home Dad who enjoys spending time with his family, tuning in to the latest sports news and keeping up with the latest TV shows. He’s turned his hobbies and interests into a career, and Ryan Christopher DeVault continues to be among the top Sports and Arts & Entertainment Contributors on Associated Content by Yahoo!

He’s a full-time freelance writer and happy to have the luxury of working his own schedule. When he’s not busy writing and taking care of the fam, you can find him hiking or spending time exploring new cities. I caught up with this talented writer to find out what his writing goals are, and who has inspired him to continue building his flourishing writing career on AC by Yahoo!…

SK: How did you get started writing for AC?
RD: Originally I started out as just someone posting articles sporadically, and that lasted for more than a year.  When the 2008 Summer Olympics started though, I became extremely active, and really got into the flow of participating on the site.

SK: What inspired you to join?
RD: One of my friends was talking about how fun it was to write on Associated Content, so one day I finally decided to give it a try.  His name is Alex Diaz-Granados.

SK: Your favorite content category to browse at work is:
RD: Definitely Arts & Entertainment.  There is always so much going on in the television and film industry that you can miss a lot by taking a day off.  There are so many great contributors on Associated Content that provide quite a bit of news about what is going on in entertainment.
