Hold onto your keyboards fellow SportsBlog members, a site relaunch is coming to a blog near you this September. As if this place wasn't awesome enough, there are many new, exciting features and tools that are included in the relaunch, all for you the blogger to utilize.
Before I get into all the relaunch stuff, let me just say a few things about Sportsblog.com. Sportsblog is rapidly growing, and it's because of all the great talent and work that all the bloggers put in on a daily basis.
You can be a professional athlete, past or present, an inspiring writer trying to get his or her name out there, or just a simple sports nut who likes to voice his/her opinion. We strive to give all bloggers a good experience and a chance to be heard in a growing community of over 20,000 blogs.
I'm going to assume there are some out there reading this who are not Sportsblog members or first-time visitors to the site. Here's a glimpse of what Sportsblog.com is about:
As mentioned above, Sportsblog.com is home to 20,000+ blogs. And you should see some of the names on our roster! The list is truly endless, but here's just a sample of some of the athletes we currently have blogging here at Sportsblog.com: Mitch Richmond, Tim Hardaway, Dale Ellis, Derek Carr, Kyle Long, Brady Quinn, Blaine Bishop, Warren Sapp, Swin Cash, Cappie Pondexter, Matt Fish, etc. The list of both former and current athletes goes on and on here at Sportsblog.com. It is truly astonishing and is what really makes this place unique.
Ever heard of a guy named Charlie Villanueva? NCAA national champion, lottery pick in the 2005 draft, and 2006 NBA Rookie of the Year runner up (behind Chris Paul)? Yea, that guy.
Well, he's chronicled his entire free agency trek right here on this very site. He's literally shown us a first-hand account of what it's like to be in NBA free agency limbo in his weekly "Crossroads" webisode. It's truly great stuff, check it out!
Ever watch or hear about Atlanta Dream WNBA rookie sensation Shoni Schimmel? Of course you have, she's awesome. But if you haven't, she's here blogging as well, showcasing every step and memory she makes in her rookie season for all fans to see.
How about a google hangout with a former NBA player? We got those as well! Jim Mcllvane did a google hangout with fellow bloggers Rich Winter of the Panic Button, Jake Elman of Sportsmix, and Sportsblog's social media guru Vaden Hoffman. Oh, and more former and current athletes will be doing these hangouts in the near future, geez is this place awesome or what?!?
Now for the juicy gossip...coming this September, the relaunch of Sportsblog.com will feature a complete makeover of the site itself. It will be user-friendly, and provide new, snazzy themes for the layout of your blogs. Not only that, but all bloggers will have a video and image library at their disposal.
PLUS, you will be able to see advanced stats on your posts so you know where your coveted traffic is coming from! I know some of you will like that one. So, are you excited yet? Hang on, there's more...
