New cricket blogs on Cricinfo

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.
