All you need to know about sports.
When I was looking for news on blogging, I ran into a website that is very interesting and may be useful to all the sports fan out there. The website is called Bleacher Report. Bleacher Report is a news website that covers all the major sports such as NBA, MLB, NHL, NFL, UFC and other sports that are widely watched around the globe. According to the website, "Bleacher Report delivers digital media's most engaging content experience to sports fans all over the world."
Founded in 2006, the website already has as much as 30 million viewers a month. The website not only covers comprehensive reporting about all the sports and teams but also entertaining insights about what is going on in sports. The website features news articles and also blogs.
The awesome thing about Bleacher Report is that it is connected to major social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook. Readers are able directly comment on the articles and follow the website for direct access to the newest updates. Articles constantly feature the "Tweets of the Night" where the voice of fans are spotlighted.
Perhaps the most interesting part about this website is live blogs. Professional columnists will blog live as the game goes on. Here is an example of live blog of the NHL playoff between LA Kings and Phoenix Coyotes. The columnist blogs about the game every few minutes with interesting comments about the game. Is this the next generation of game commentator?
Although I'm not a big sports fan, this website does seem to be very interesting and perhaps helpful in being updated about the top stories in sports. The website is a demonstration of how blogging is evolving and how influential social media had become in our lives- hopefully for the better.
Oh, and don't forget. Bleacher Report is also available as an app on Iphone and Ipad.
Happy Sports Streaming!
