I was very encouraged by the kind words that some of you have given in my Pistons/NBA update threads, and have decided to be impulsive and heed the suggestion that I create my own blog.
In light of my favorite message board (wtfdetroit) suffering from a dearth of posters, the biggest message board (realgm) being plagued by an influx of n00b posters and power-tripping mods, and some unsatisfactory writing by the newspapers, I feel confident in the decision to get my opinions out there. and to write run-on sentences. and fragments.
It does turn out that there are existing successful blogs that all seem to be friendly with each other.
www.pistonpowered.com has about seven writers at their disposal and are an ESPN affiliate site, with every NBA franchise having a sponsored blog.
www.detroitbadboys.com has good content as well, with two professional writers and a web developer on staff.
www.need4sheed.com is operated by a girl who started the site mainly as an outlet for her visual talents, such as wallpapers, cartoon, and highlight videos. She hasn't updated in two weeks, last I checked, but I know she's made a living off the site.
***So, fellow MGoBloggers and Wolverines, I ask for your HALP! What are you want for that those blogs and the writers you frequent aren't giving you in regards to the Pistons and the NBA? What are they doing right, and what are they doing wrong? What do you want more or less of? What MGoFeatures would you like to see on a friendly site?***
