ASG Vote Begins; MLBlogs Network updates
We just launched the All-Star Game ballot, and fortunately it is always an election year in baseball as I noted in the launch story. Start submitting those 25 ballots per MLB.com registration, and it makes great blogging material. Try copy/pasting a cropped screenshot of your ballot showing your choices. Looking forward to seeing lots of blogs about the voting process between now and July. allstargame.com >
Just saw the latest example of MLBloggers getting MLB.com bylines. Thanks to Steve Dempsey, Paul Festa and Ryan Maloney, who actually have a triple byline AND their own taglines. I have never seen that kind of crediting at MLB.com before. The taglines link to their own MLBlogs. Millions of users currently are seeing the display of our Video Games technology package now displayed on the homepage as I write this. See my previous post as well — I had lots of candidates to review the Dodgers/Dbacks stuff but at last check no Dodger/Dback fans among them. Would prefer people with those rooting interests, if not in next 24 hours will just send the DVD sets out to best available bloggers. Must have an MLBlog.
Service Advisory, updated 6:48 a.m. ET Wednesday: All pages rebuilt overnight, should see improvement in performance. Welcome to rookies and thanks to the entire community, which has created as many blogs this month as we did in the first three years. Seems you all like FREE blogs and being able to legally show your favorite team’s logos and stuff.
