There is a huge opportunity to blog this IPL cricket fever. Afterall movies and cricket unite us more than anything else. I’m sure there are companies out there cracking their minds to build sites and business models around this. Blogging will certainly play a huge role as the crowd becomes information hungry.
It’s not a stock market. No one is going to be benifitted on the short run. Only blogs that have a regular postings, great user interface, less ad-blocks and bite-size information will sustain the long run. But if you are crazy about cricket and would like to have your say on this arena of the blogosphere, just book your domain and start typing. If you are smart, I’m sure you wouldn’t want to start a IPL cricket blog on wordpress.com or blogger.com which are mere sub-domains. It’s already over-crowded there.
If you are bunch of college grads and would like to start a cool company around this IPL phenomenon, a blogging network, which hosts a blog/micro-news-site for each of the teams would make a great deal of sense. You don’t need tons of money to start this. All you need would be one hosting account these days, to host numerous sites.
As IPL grips India, the early birds to this IPL blogging will have a great say. So if you would want to start, today is the day.
P.S – BTW, I recently booked Go Chennai Super Kings !! [Go CSK] just so some damn domain squatter doesn’t walk away with this golden domain. I’m probably not going to do anything with it so if in case you really want to create a blog around this domain, I can certainly part with it.
