Welcome to JordanTuwiner.com.
I’ve had this domain registered for quite some time, but never had the time or drive to do something with it.
Most of you are reading this because you’re familiar with my work at Orioles Nation, and simply know me as Jordan or Jordan Tuwiner. However, few of you know anything about me beyond my name. That’s about to change.
Creating and maintaining a credible sports blog or website these days is very hard to do. It’s easy to get a blog set up, but building it up into a resource that people trust is a tough task.
I founded OriolesProspects.com (what is now Orioles Nation) back in 2009. At the time I was 14 years old.
What started as a place for me to share my thoughts on the Orioles began to slowly develop into a trusted Baltimore Orioles resource.
I had always felt that if people discovered my age, perhaps my audience would fade and people would put less trust and time into following my work.
So for years I continued writing as Jordan, revealing nothing more.
For so long I felt that I wanted people to know who was behind the site, but wasn’t confident enough to share more about myself. I still worried about how people would perceive Orioles Nation if they knew a high school student was behind the site.
Through all of this, I eventually realized that Orioles Nation had become something that allowed me to interview Zach Britton, and many other minor league players. It became something that earned me press passes to the Orioles minor league affiliates. It became something that thousands of people per day came to read.
No longer did I feel like I had anything to hide, but more that I had something to show. That, in fact my age meant nothing to my readers, rather the quality of my work was what mattered.
This hit me in February 2012, shortly before I was about to set off on a journey to Israel, Poland, and the Czech Republic for three months (I’ll be writing more about this later). I promised myself that as soon as I returned, I was going to share with my audience who I really am.
Here I am in May, just beginning my summer break before I head off to Towson in the Fall.
With this personal site, I hope to write about topics that have less to do with the Orioles and to write more about ‘life’ — things like Apple, reviews, food, my travels, school, coding, and maybe even some photography.
I’m not exactly sure how often I’ll post, but whatever it ends up being it’ll be more of a glimpse into what I’m thinking and more about my personal life.
