Welcome to CollinKottke.com. I hope you have arrived here by design instead of by pure accident. Let me attempt to explain what’s going on here:
I love to write and I love a lot of different things. When you put those two loves together, you get me loving to write about a variety of things. I created this website to let me do just that. Be it a random sports blurb or country music revelation or television observance or whatever, it’ll be here. Really this site is no holds barred.
The day job is being Marketing Manager at Kottke Trucking where I have business cards and everything. I get to play with social media and try to take cool pictures of trucks on a daily basis while working with my amazing family. It’s a grand gig!
I have organized sports blurb thoughts about the Minnesota sporting scene over at Sporting Sota where I am the Site Expert. Sporting Sota is part of the Fansided Network and they give me some cash to write about all my favorite teams in Minnesota. It’s a great deal!
While journalism and writing is a big love of mine, being a radio DJ is my main media working love. I appear on the stations of KDUZ/KARP/KGLB more days than not and you can stream all that from the website. Even when I’m not on, stream it because it’s an absolutely awesome family of radio stations. You’ll enjoy it!
My dear friend Logan Ahlers and I have a lot of great ideas. First we had the Calling Loon podcast which was about basically anything. We now have the great idea of Land of 10,000 Takes, a podcast about Minnesota sports that we obviously need to give more time to or any time at all to. I’m sure we’ll have even greater ideas in the years to come. Listen up!
I thank you for stopping by and I hope you come back again soon. In the meantime, jump in, hold on and please enjoy.
