The rise of the sports blogger
I don't have enough time to delve deeply into the subject at the moment, but I did want to point readers to a link on Aaron Gleeman, a baseball blogger who makes his living doing just that, who was recently featured in Sports Illustrated:
To be featured in an article about "how the web is changing sports coverage" in Sports Illustrated, with my picture next to a picture of Simmons, is without question one of the proudest moments of my life. For the writer to say that I "might be the most prolific baseball writer working today" is just icing on the cake.Congrats to Gleeman (and thanks to Tyler over at mc79hockey — who, by the way, has joined the blogroll to the right — for the link).
As Tyler notes, Tom Benjamin did a nice job of addressing the issue previously, but I really think it's a subject that could use multiple posts from different people. Perhaps another time.
