Updated 4:37 p.m. ET on Friday: Looking forward to all the posts on the new stadium-travel blog by Baseball Tourist. Cool to see our friends at Phillies Ballgirls posting their favorite moments of the season, you might want to do the same. Congrats to Jane Heller on some great pub for her upcoming book about the Yankees. Hey, Skip, glad to have you here and I’m sure you’d like to have April to do over again. Welcome back, Tiff!

blogmain.jpgAt the end of the season, I’ll put together a 2008 list to see who dominated the year in MLBlogs traffic. Hope you guys like the panel image (right) that I cobbled together for the MLBlogs.com homepage. Hey, everyone: Please make your profile pic YOU! This is one reason — I just looked for profile pics to swipe from MLBlogs to make that graphic. You can put pics of your favorite player within your blog posts — use the profile pic to show people the blog author’s identity.

October Gonzo kind of owns that MLBlogs.com real estate these days, so I wanted to slip this in and we’ll do it more. BTW, for the few MLBloggers I have seen who gripe about OG getting too much limelight on the MLBLogs.com homepage, my question to you is this: How many times do you have a nationwide TV commercial running constantly that prominently says MLBlogs.com at the end of it and thus is driving lots of viewers here to possibly experience fans’ blogs for the first time? I am so proud that MLB decided this year to make blogs the centerpiece of our national TV postseason ad campaign. Keep it up, I’ll make sure there are a thousand OG images on the MLBlogs homepage if needed. Instead of complaining that OG gets too much attention, I would think the
smart blogger would regularly post astute comments (with your URL) on his blog, giving people a glimpse of why they need to keep visiting you, being a key part of the OG community. Be smart when you promote.

Big welcome to some new Halo bloggers, and I want to especially make sure you check out a GREAT post by this MLBlogger. It’s a perfect example of how an MLBlog can be your way of documenting that dream day at the ballpark.

Make sure you join the new MLBlogs Facebook Page! Lots of other MLBloggers like http://crazedbluejay.mlblogs.com/ (starting off at No. 200 overall) are over there. It’s another way for you to promote your MLBlog. Be sure to join, post images/pics, and say hi to everyone.
