Summer Means Sports!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Positive Real Estate Professionals

Okay so all the other seasons mean sports as well but summer is most associated in my mind with sports, i.e. the Boys of Summer. I look forward to the occasional afternoon baseball game or a weekend trip to see my favorite team play in person. In addition to the big league sports there are the numerous minor league and college teams to see. I also enjoy the T-Ball the my nieces and nephew play. So whether you are taking in your favorite major league team, minor league team, college team, or children's team, the warmth of summer beckons many of us to the ball field.

As an active blogger, I find that writing about various subjects that I know and enjoy help the words to flow more freely from my brain to the keyboard. I have been actively writing sports posts since my beginning days as a blogger. I am of the opinion that sports is one of those culturally unifying constructs. This can work on a micro to macro level.

I am also one of those writers who likes to receive feedback on what I write. There is a certain level of acknowledgemnt of one's effort when the number of visitors increase, and especially when there are numerous comments. For this reason, I started the Athletic Alley Blog carnival about ten months ago. The impetus behind this carnival was to allow other sports writers to submit links to their sports and fitness related articles and then I would present them in a sensible fashion in a weekly post on Athletic Alley. This not only gives the submitter link love, it directly exposes their posts to a wider audience. I am happy to report that the blog carnival has been consistently growing and regularly gets several hundred to a thousand viewers each week. If you enjoy sports and writing sports related articles, I invite you to submit your sports related articles to the Athletic Alley Blog Carnival.

This sounds interesting and I will have to look into writing a little more on sports. As you said, summer means sports and it is so true! Gotta go and write!
