Will you add my blog? podcast?
We might! We're always looking for quality Toronto sports content, but we like to take it slow, and keep a balance.
We'll consider adding a blog or podcast if:
- it's mostly one-team-specific content
- it has quality content
- it's regularly updated (not necessarily often)
- it's at least one year old
- there's room in the blog/podcast section
We design a very specific and detailed crawler configuration for each source we track and over the years these criteria have helped us be consistent and fair with content creators while keeping the quality high.
We wanted a better way to discover, keep tabs on, and promote a wider array of blogs and podcasts so we made...
The Blog Tracker & Podcast Tracker
We add every blog we find to its team's respective Blog Tracker. Here we track EVERY Blue Jays, Raptors, Maple Leafs, and Toronto FC blog we can find. We send our crawler at different times of the day to retrieve new content, and present links to recent content for each blog, with content from the last 48 hours displayed automatically. If a blog or podcast hasn't posted in over a year, it falls off the list and no longer gets crawled.
The Blue Jays Blog Tracker has over 40 active Jays blogs at the time of this writing, and over 100 in the Graveyard.
The Podcast Tracker, of course, does the same for podcasts.
The Raptors Podcast Tracker, for example, monitors 20 active Raptors Podcasts at the time of this writing. It's a terrific list of affiliated and independent podcasts, big or small.
We use these pages a lot to monitor and pick new blogs and podcasts for the main site.
If you have (or know of) a blog or podcast that's not on our list, please let us know.
