Today is the launch of my new blog, breslinsports.com. New look, new URL and hopefully more content for all of my readers. Over the years, the number of visits to my blog has gone up, and I think you deserve a reward for that. So I have turned my blog into something that is more aesthetically pleasing, and hopefully that will make the experience better for you!
Admittedly, my blogs have been based off my personal thoughts in the past. Between two jobs and personal time, I don’t always have time to do thorough research and pull up a bevy of statistics on my blog topics. So it’s not that I don’t think I know what I’m talking about, it’s just that I haven’t always been able to delve into the discussions as deeply as I’d like.
But I’m hoping that will all change now, as this becomes a more all-encompassing blog with regards to the sports world. I want to keep my writing sharp, but I also want to stay linked in to the sports world, and this is my gateway to do that.
I promise to do that tomorrow, but today is all about giving you, the reader, a chance to poke around the new site with old blog posts and see what all is new. Additionally, last night was filled with building the new site, so forgive me for taking a breather today.
Here’s what you’re going to find in the new site that you never would have seen yesterday.
– The first thing you’ll notice when you pull up the home page is the top stories at the top with pretty pictures. I like that my blog now has a home page, because it will be much easier to find a story you want to read. More options is a good thing, especially since I discuss several different sports, and I understand that everyone isn’t a fan of FSU Football but may like Major League Baseball.
– Recently, commenting was made easier for the reader, because you can comment through Twitter or Facebook. So this will be a more interactive site, which started with the Poll of the Day but will continue with discussions within my blog entries.
– I will place a bigger focus on what happens outside the lines. I also love reading about the way social media and marketing affects sports, and I’d like to make that more of a focus in my discussions. So if a franchise is using a revolutionary campaign off the field, you’re going to hear about it. Staying away from monotony and repetition will make you want to come back over and over, and it will keep me writing every day.
So let’s see how this works out. I put money into a personal blog, and I think that is proof that I am serious about my writing, even if it’s the writing I do for pleasure. Hopefully you will see more proof that I’m serious when you read the content, as well.
