The sports card blogosphere sure is a different place, and actually a much bigger place, than it was when I created this blog six months ago. Back then, I don’t think there were more than about 20 blogs that were updated regularly. It was relatively easy to keep track of all the blogs that were out there, and I didn’t have any trouble finding time to read almost all of the blogs at least weekly. It stayed this way for most of the summer. My blog was created on June 14, and I think that Achiever Card Blog was born at around the same time. Then it was quiet for a while. Maybe people were enjoying the hot summer weather and vacationing, but I don’t remember many or any new card blogs popping up in July and August. Then September came, and it seemed that the number of new card blogs started to explode. I began to see the names of new blogs on people’s blogrolls almost every day. By the time of the first blog bat-around at Sports Cards Uncensored, I hadn’t even heard of half of the blogs that participated.
Don’t get me wrong, I think that this is a very good thing. It is great for the hobby when so many collectors are voicing their opinions on the internet. The entire community is friendly and interactive, and I really enjoy reading all of the blogs out there. The only problem is that it’s tough to keep up with all of the new blogs and to find time to read them all. Because of this, I haven’t been updating the links on my blog very often (although I did add a new one the other day, The Player To Be Named Later, which is written by a fellow collector in NC).
So the point of this post is that if you’re a card blogger, and you write at least a couple of times per week, I would like to add a link to your blog here on Fielder’s Choice. My only requirement is that you link to Fielder’s Choice from your blog too. Just email me or leave a comment on this post if you’re interested. Hopefully it’ll help your blog and mine gain a few more readers, and it’ll definitely help me to keep up with the ever-expanding number of blogs. I’d also be interested in doing a link exchange with any other sports card web sites, or any general sports blogs or web sites.
