Dejan has been fine lately, I got the site for my dad since he enjoys reading his stuff. He's very active on social media too it seems, I mean all signs show he works around the clock at it.

Good for Dejan for knowing what he is doing and seemingly having a successful site going. I respect someone that has the sack to start their own business and not do it while being an arrogant prick(at least I don't remember him being that was as he started the venture). He took a chance and it seems like he won. He saw the way the industry was trending and got ahead of it.

I've been pretty critical of him in the past and often found him arrogant and condescending, though not nearly to the level of the Smoothie King. He's passable as a writer (far more than can be said for Tammay), but nothing more, though I admittedly haven't read him since his site went up. All that said, I can also admire him for the same praise you're giving him, and I'm sure he's working his ass off for whatever success he's getting, rather than just claiming to be working hard.

Honestly, good for him.

Where he can separate himself as well, other than covering all 3 teams so he has a bigger audience pool, is that he has connections he has built within the organizations. He's going to get stories from people and interviews a lot easier. The only place where Tim could possibly build a relationship is with the Marauders, where players are so far away that their interviews aren't really that coveted anyway. There's also no news scoops coming out of a minor league affiliate. His only attempt at breaking news was a complete swing and miss that ruined him emotionally for weeks.

Dejan just hired a full time Pirates beat reporter, Nate Barnes.

Nate actually worked for Tammay a few years ago.

I'm a big fan of DK's site and he's crushing it. Looking forward to reading Nate's stuff.

Don't recall ever reading any of Barmes' stuff. If I were Dejan, I'd have tried to hire David Manel from bucsdugout.

But yeah, he runs a great site.

Now Dejan hired some chick who's better looking than Kristy as a "social media director."

The only real question is does she have thigh gap?

Big deal. Diane Sawyer could direct social media and I could direct social media better than her and Travis Snider is better than both of us but didn't invent Twitter so who cares.

That site is becoming pretty huge. The sponsors must be really paying a ton for him to have that big of a staff. Though, I do question the need for a "social media director," especially one that is so good at social media that she has 900 followers on Twitter. Then again, I'm skeptical of all people with a title that begins with "social media." I remember a meeting a couple of years ago where a "social media expert" was telling us how to gain a bigger following. I think he had 200 followers on Twitter.

I would admit that I was wrong about DK's site but according to MVKian theory, one can never have a change of opinion, even if new information is available.

Meh, I don't see it...she looks like every other 22-year-old from small town WV.

This seems an odd hire to me by Dejan...he's clearly kicking ass with his site, and the content is very good if a bit too "everything is wonderful" at times, but as DJF said, this seems an unnecessary hire. Guess we'll see.

He's tired of filling his Facebook and Twitter feeds with links. That will be her job. And he's probably paying her a pittance.

All probably true. He's said that he's going to start covering Penn State and WVU football, so if that's the case he's going to need some bodies for fall weekends, especially since there'll be a Pirates or Pens game every Saturday also.

This sounds like its a part time gig for her and like you said, just populating links/stories on the major platforms. I doubt she'll actually be doing much in the realm of traditional marketing, brand promotion, SEO, etc.

True, but social media is practically essential these days. He doesn't need to be spending his own time doing that menial shit, but somebody needs to do it.

And she's way hotter than Kristy.

Agree on all counts. If you do the cost analysis. It's much cheaper to pay her to do that shit, than it is for DK to take the time to do it. I'm pretty sure her wage rate is much lower than DK's.

A lot of social media coordinators will also handle simple responses to fans and commentators who reach out on Social Media. She'll probably spend a lot of her time writing tweets "from Dejan" that say innocuous shit like "Great point, thanks for commenting" to make subscribers feel like they're actually engaged in the discussion. That shit means a lot to some people.

Plus she's probably making a pittance, as noted.
