We at True Blue are excited to announce that SBNation has completed a partnership with Yahoo! Sports. The intricate details of that partnership can be read at Blog Huddle
As members of our communities or readers of our sites, you already know that SB Nation takes a different approach to online sports. Our focus has always been on empowering fans to participate in conversations that are specific to their particular teams, leagues or sports. We’ve watched over the years as the popularity of this unique approach has rapidly accelerated.
Relevant pages of Yahoo Sports will now feature contextual links to specific SB Nation communities. Many other pages of Yahoo Sports will feature SB Nation content and links. The great news is that more sports fans will be introduced to SB Nation sites.
We have two main writers at True Blue, Eric Stephen the smart guy, and myself the fluff and puff guy. We are both relative newcomers to the SBNation world. I was a co-writer for about a year and Eric joined several months ago. Since the two of us have been writing together we have seen True Blue grow over 50% and we expect more growth with the advent of the Yahoo traffic. Here is a quick primer on True Blue. Besides the writers you will find an excellent and mostly respectful group of commenters. If you are unfamiliar with Dodger blogs I'd suggest taking a look at the Dodger blogs on the left sidebar. All of them are interesting and some of our best commentators are fellow Dodger bloggers. I hope you join our nation and contribute to it but if not, I hope we engage you enough to come back everyday to read what is going on in the Dodger world.
When you are ready, feel free to join the conversation or start one up. Whether you create a new profile or use your Yahoo or OpenID credentials to register, one username and password will give you access to all our communities. Each SB Nation site offers the same mechanisms for participating in the action via comments, FanPosts (a blog entry of your very own) or FanShots (a quick micro-post of a thought, link or photo.) Before you post though, please remember, you are entering an established and ongoing community. Your voice and opinions are encouraged (that’s what being a fan is all about after all), but as in any productive conversation, they should be presented in a manner that is courteous, civil and respectful of the culture that you are entering.
