Sox Blogs

The Cheat posted a rundown of White Sox blogs the other day and after a slow start the Sox are now well represented in the blogosphere.

Baseball blogs started to take off in 2003 during what was a great season in Chicago. The Sox fell short in great race against the Twins and the Cubs - well they had very memorable season too.

Both the Twins and Cubs seasons were being chronicled by some very good and very dedicated bloggers. And the Sox were being blogged by absolutely no one (blogwise that is - the Sox did have a web presence with Whte sox interactive and the It was embarrassing and I really felt I had no choice but to start Chisox Daily. The daily part didn't last long but honestly I just liked the sound of the name and didn't put a lot of thought into it.

It's a very different scene now as the Cheat's diverse list demonstrates. And for that the Cheat deserves a lot of credit as he set a very high standard with his site Blogging a site like mine is easy. I just post something when I fell like I have something to say. It might take five minutes or it might take and hour. Whatever.

But to build a site of the quality of Southsidesox takes hours of work each day. I hope the Cheat is able to make a little money off the site. His work is certainly appreciated here.

Anyway, you should check out the blogs on the list. The White Sox now boast a line-up of blogs that can stand up to any other team in baseball.
