Blog Box reveals 12 Box bloggers
The NYI BLOG BOX, presented by HockeyBuzz.com, is up and running.I'm afraid I'll have to admit I haven't heard of any of these "historic" bloggers, but this should make for quite the interesting experiment. Again, good on the Islanders for trying to drum up some coverage.
By clicking here, you will meet the 12 chosen charter bloggers and get the first look at their Islanders blogs. You will also be part of history, as a major professional sports team is opening up a separate press facility and their website on a grand scale to bloggers for the first time ever.
I'm absolutely amazed at how many hockey blogs there are out there now; when I started during the lockout, it was a small, merry band of hardcores — most of whom are still going strong.
Now, we've got a situation where there are more and more mainstream media heavyweights beginning to start some form of "blog," and the Isles even have their public relations staff in on the act (here and here).
More coverage is, I think, a good thing for fans, but it does make you wonder where it will all end.
