UK blog network, The Googly.have just launched a Cricket Blog by the name of
Now this is not a blog that will appeal to every reader of ProBlogger as it’s on a game that many around the world just don’t get – but it’s going to have a massive potential audience. When you consider that countries like India (with a population over over 1 billion people) play (and are rather obsessed about watching) cricket you begin to see the potential for a blog like this.
It’s a blog that looks like largely being monetized by AdSense at this point but I suspect they might do ok with affiliate programs down the track – especially if they decide to explore betting affiliate programs (lots of money goes down on cricket matches in some parts of the world).
My only sadness – they beat us at b5 to the punch as we’ve been working towards our own cricket blog for a while.
I don’t tend to announce new blogs these days – but this one’s going straight to the news aggregator!
PS: it’s going to be great to be able to be a reader of a UK Cricket Blog during the next Ashes series when their team gets completely trounced!
PS2: Apologies to readers in non Cricketing parts of the world who have no idea what I was just writing about – feel free to ignore this post :-)
