We’ve gone BlogTastik at Cricinfo, rolling them out like there’s no tomorrow. After The Surfer, we have Wicket to Wicket (already mentioned) and most recently Different Strokes. This latest launch is a little experiment we’re trialling, allowing outside bloggers (cricket ones – of course) to blog reasonably freely about the game on our blog. We’ll see how it goes, but check it out. If you’re interested in writing a piece for it, just leave a comment and I’ll get back to you. I have a few people in mind whom I’d like to be involved – sorry for not yet contacting you, but be assured…I will.
Finally, me and my boss’s blog, Beyond The Test World is the most recent – an embryonic blog of just a few days old. It does what it says on the tin, and I’m quite excited by it – we’re going to be trawling for all the stories from the smaller, less well-known cricketing countries. Fiji, Ireland, Bermuda, the USA, China (?), parts of Europe and Africa. Anywhere that we don’t already cover on Cricinfo – Martin’s got things going with some good stuff, in particular a post about US cricket. (email me and Martin with any snippets you hear!)
So, there we go. Blogs are a funny thing…they change, adapt and grow and we’ll be doing the same. Some will survive, some will die – and as ever, post/email your thoughts on them.
