A Big Day for Blogging Dirty

2008 NFL Draft

A new design, lots of collaboration and a special thanks to the Falcons community. Hit the jump to see why this is a great day for BloggingDirty.com

A Mock Draft, CBS Style
CBS Sports, the Fansided Network and Blogging Dirty are teaming up for a “Real” Live Football Mock Draft starting today at 1pm ET.

Head over to CBS Sports.com to follow all the action. I will be playing the role of Thomas Dimitroff and making the Falcons selection at #19. Who will I choose? Brandon Graham is a popular pick, Sean Weatherspoon could be an option, or will I go Cornerback if Kyle Wilson is on the board? Find out today!

From the site:

CBSSports.com and the NFL team bloggers from FanSided.com team up to give you the second annual “Real” Live Football Mock Draft. Acting as General Manager of each of the NFL’s 32 teams, the FanSided crew makes the best pick available for their franchise, based on team needs, best available players and other key issues.

Check back Monday, April 19 at 1 p.m. ET for the start of Round 1 and check back frequently throughout the day as we complete Rounds 1 and 2.

In “I Can’t Believe This is Happening” News
Blogging Dirty was chosen along with some terrific Falcons writers to participate in D3′s Mock Draft Expert Panel. Head over to The Bird Cage to check it out. Remember the words of Dale Carnegie, “Be hearty in your approbation and lavish in your praise.”

And Finally
Notice anything different around here? Blogging Dirty has a new design. You’ll notice lots of new features that will hopefully make your time at BloggingDirty.com that much better.

On a Personal Note
I took over as Lead Blogger for Blogging Dirty a little over two weeks ago. In that time, the community of Falcons writers/bloggers/journalists have embraced me as one of their own.

Matt Loede from Falcons Gab, Dave Choate from The Falcoholic and Dawson Devitt from The Bird Cage are three in particular who have gone out of their way to make me feel welcome.

There are many more people on Twitter who’ve been great as well and I would no doubt leave someone out if I tried mention them here but you know who you are.

Okay, I’m hearing the music so I need to wrap this Oscar speech up.

TL;DR, Thanks!
