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:
Unfortunately, blogs and podcasts all too often begin with incredible energy and enthusiasm but quickly succumb to the soul-crushing thanklessness of putting yourself out there. Or, you know, you get scooped up by an established site and start blogging or podcasting there.
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 promotoe a wider array of blogs and podcasts so we made...
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 Podcast Tracker, of course, does the same for Blue Jays, Raptors, Maple Leafs, and TFC 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.
