I spoke to someone that I admire as a creator on multiple levels James Carter III who is the editor and Chief of Skybox Sports Website. (www.skyboxsports.net) He founded this site July 2013 for all sports lovers. Skybox Sports is a website where you can receive all the right information along with unbiased opinions. Their thoughts are unfiltered and holds no bars which myself finds appealing as an independent writer. Here is a brief conversation/ interview that I had with James Carter III.
Brinton- With you being an editor and chief do you have Time to write your own content or do you leave that for your staff ?
Carter III -I have a great staff and I rely on them heavily, but without putting too much pressure on them I do write my own content.
Brinton-What article are you working on for March?
Carter III-It’s hard to predict what articles we are preparing for in March because we try to keep up with the latest stories, trades, updates etc… In March you can definitely look for stories about March Madness, NBA and MLB.
Brinton- .How many people are on your staff?
Carter III- There is three people on my staff. (Four including myself)
Brinton- What is a typical day for you as an independent site as a man that has to wear many hats to keep your site flowing and current?
Carter III- A typical day for me is, updating the Twitter feed with news & scores, posting the fan page on Facebook to direct people to the site and publishing or editing new content to be posted. Sometimes it even includes writing new articles.
Brinton- What inspired Sky Box Sports besides being Sports Lovers?
Carter III- What inspired Skybox Sports was just my passion to be opinionated and involved in sports media. Sports are the one thing in life that no matter how bad or good it may be at times, it’ll always be there tomorrow. It’s a brief escape from reality, were we get to cheer for our favorite athlete or team.
Brinton- If you can have five People to be avid readers of your site who would they be?
Carter III -I can’t choose five avid readers for Skybox Sports. I want anyone with a heartbeat to read it. All ages, shapes, colors and sizes.
Brinton- What do you see developing in the Future for you and your staff and who is a part of the growing site that is catching a lot of buzz as of late?
Carter III-In the future we will have a podcast and videos to help grow the buzz and interaction for the site. During the NFL season we had live polls and it was great interaction from our viewers.
Brinton- Is there anything you want to add about Skybox Sports? That I might have missed? And what separates you from a website like Grantland?
Carter III- A site like Grantland has many well respected writers and a bigger staff. We hope to reach that level of respect someday. With guys like us, we don’t know anyone, nor owe anyone, so you can always expect the truth.
Thanks to James Carter III for his insight on his team and their amazing site. Carter III and his team has no agenda but to give the people the truth and nothing but the truth. WWW.skyboxsports.net
