Way back when Blog Networks were trendy, I decided to get into the business. One day I’ll explain how our sports network was a little early in the marketplace. Right now, though, there are a number of blogs in the network.
I use the term network very loosely, as I don’t sell advertising across the networks or anything like that. They are just the sites content is generated for.
Active Blog Network Sites
Sports Injury Blog – The Disabled List shows common sports injuries and how to deal with them. The site was started due to the lack of real world, helpful information.
Reviews of Everything – Fine Reviews is my personal thumb up the nose of UGC sites. It makes no sense to me why people contribute to Yelp, Amazon, etc. sharing their experiences. Those companies then own what you say and make money off of it. I also rolled the former movie review website into Fine Reviews.
Information Blog – Webcasty is an offshoot of my late 1990s, early 2000s goal of bringing old information to the world. Thanks to Google and their book scanning efforts, the site is relatively unused now. I still contribute old papers, recipes and more I created to it.
Technology Business Blog – Yald is my personal site and where I pontificate on technology, news and business. It really is a catch-all with some old, embarrassing stuff on it.
Creative Commons Free Stock Photos – Hoop Troups is a stupid name, but I bought the domain in an auction, so why not. It is a collection of photos I’ve taken that others might like. Not the greatest quality, but they are free. Looking for a quick photo for a blog post? Need something for an ad? Feel free.
There are quite a few inactive sites, but I’ll cover those later. It is fascinating how you can fall in and out of love with a topic.
