Recently on Twitter somebody brought up that they think there are too many Mets bloggers. I'm not going to say who it was or if I agree with what they say. But I have noticed a lot of new Mets bloggers this offseason. And I've noticed a lot of them just spit out news like there's no tomorrow.
I know I am definitely not a perfect blogger at all and I definitely don't have the most popular Mets blog out there, but I know I do more than some of the other blogs. The blogs that just give out news without even adding their take on what they're "reporting" are just stupid. Even the ones who give their opinion but only post news are pretty stupid. I know reading headlines is boring, especially if it's a slow news day. And I know that when I find a blog I want it to say more than:
METS SIGN BARAJAS. The Mets have signed Rod Barajas to a one year deal.
There is no need for that.
The point of a blog is to express your own opinion. Your opinions don't even have to be relevant to the most recent news. But you really should add personal opinion and experience if you want a successful blog.
Only one headlines blog is needed and chances are, you came too late to take that role.
I know this post was a little out of the blue but I wanted to get this off my chest and needed more than the 140 characters Twitter gave me.
NOW WE RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING.
Let's Go Mets!
