Matthew Cerrone is working on building an online community by offering free blogs in the Metsblog Network. There are a limited number of free blogs available, with pretty loose terms of service:
- Focus your blog primarily on the topic of sports, baseball or the Mets. It’s OK to blog about other topics, but if you want to create a blog about your cat, this program’s not for you.
- Be active; blogs that are not updated will be removed. Blogs that have not been updated within the last 30 days will be subject to removal.
- Only one blog per person please!
Each blog receives its own Metsblog subdomain. It’s not exactly clear how the network will be tied into the main site, but it does say that there will be special RSS feeds and services to keep people updated on network happenings.
It’s an interesting idea, and it seems to differ slightly from TwinsGeek’s attempt at a multi-blog network. It’s will be interesting to see how it works. Best of luck to Matthew on this endeavor.
