Garnet Report hasn’t always been in the form that we know and love today. In fact, when we first started it over a year ago, things were quite different.
Our original idea was to make Garnet Report a way for USC students to get news, see cool stuff from around the Internet, and stay up to speed on what was happening both inside and outside the campus bubble. So we started sending daily emails full of links to stories from around the Internet. It sounded like a great idea in the beginning, and we got some pretty positive responses. But as time went by, people started to discover that daily emails get pretty old pretty quickly. We had an existential crisis, trying to decide what we wanted to be and whether we even wanted to exist.
Then, last June, our big break came. One of our writers applied for College World Series credentials on a whim. Much to everyone’s surprise, he got them. He found a way to Omaha on his own dime and wrote a mountain of articles on the Gamecocks’ run to the championship series against Arizona. Our Twitter blew up. Our pageviews did, too. And we’d found our new format: a sports-first site dedicated to bringing our readers the best, most engaging USC content on the Internet.
After spending the Fall 2012 semester covering fashion as well, we decided to focus our efforts on just sports moving forward. We hired a slew of new writers and started pumping out content left and right. Our goal is to become a vital part of the Carolina community, one of those websites that’s a must-read every day for a true Gamecock fan. And with your help, we’ll get there.
