How to start a sports blog — Ever hoped to start a sports blog? Sports are the great American past time. We play sports, we watch sports, and we talk about it – a lot. Some folks even have the desire to write about sports. One might desire to reach a bigger audience than just family and friends with their views on sports, teams and players. The Internet and blogosphere provide that opportunity. Even if you’re not a formally-trained sports writer, you can gain an audience via your own sports blog.
