WHY START A FAN BLOG FOR YOUR FAVOURITE SPORTS TEAM

Being a fan of a team can be a really important part of your life, whether you support a major Premiership team or a small local one. Of course, there are lots of ways you can support the team you care about, from actually going to watch them through to buying merchandise and saying nice things about them on the internet. The saying nice things on the internet part is surprisingly important, given that this is where most other fans go to find news, opinion, and information about the club in question.

It can therefore be a pretty great way to support your club to start a blog about them, and can also be a fun way to express your own feelings about things that are going on with the team, as well as engage with other supporters.

CHEAP AND EASY WAY TO DO SOMETHING IMPORTANT FOR YOUR CLUB

Starting a blog isn't hard at all, and you can create the basic site in an hour or so using WordPress or Blogger. The only things you need to pay for are hosting and a domain, too, and these cost very little – there are some good hosting deals at bestwebhosting.co.uk you can check out.  Depending on the size of the team you support, being a fan can be an expensive business with the cost of match tickets and merchandise, but this is a way you can be a useful part of the supporter community without spending a lot of cash. If your site performs well, it can actually start to make money through things like advertising and affiliate sales, too.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO IT ALONE!

Chances are you know some other people who are passionate about your team, and may well be interested in submitting some content from time to time. It can be surprising how many people want to have their views heard after an important piece of news or a result, and by opening up your blog to your friends, you can give them a forum to do that, one that operates under your own rules. It can be a lot of fun discussing ideas for articles and working together on something that lets you talk about your favourite subject as much as you like.

BECOMING A HUB FOR FANS

If you support a very small team, yours may be the only blog about them and can therefore be a hugely important resource for them. However, even if you support Manchester United, as far as fans are concerned there can never be too much new stuff to read about them, and people tend to pick their own favourites from the blogs available based on the styles they like, so you can still become a key site for your readers.

Starting a fan blog can be easy, great fun, and an excellent way to get more involved with your team and the fan community without spending too much money.
