Just a few thought's on how things have gone for Rugby People in it's first season.
I started the website as a place to display my photographs, I'll say right away that I make no claims to be a great photographer, I just enjoy Rugby and I enjoy taking photographs and folk that had seen my images were mainly complimentary, so I decided to give it a go.
I've always been a fan and followed Edinburgh Rugby for a number of years, two or three years ago I was asked to run the RugbyEdinburgh twitter account, which is part of RugbyUnited, I realised early on that to make it interesting you have to try and produce your own content, so I started tweeting photographs I was taking at the games, they where fairly popular and RugbyEdinburgh quickly became one of the most popular RugbyUnited accounts.
Then in July last year a change in my personal circumstances meant I could spend more time on my two hobbies, Rugby and Photography. I launched the site in September and as you can see I've spent most weekends since attending games at various levels throughout Scotland and occasionally beyond. The discovery of Wednesday University Rugby was brilliant, it meant I had four days a week where rugby became the focus.
What has been fantastic is the way the clubs have been so helpful, giving me access and helping to publicise the site and my social media. Obviously without their support the site would not have been possible.
So that's season one done, amazing memories, being Pitchside at Murrayfield for the Six Nations was amazing, still can't believe I was there! But, and I know it sounds a bit sickly, meeting all the great folk involved in Rugby has been the best thing.
Rugby People are the best, Thank You.
