Kukla's Korner Hockey
I’ve started asking a few people to submit a story in the KK Member Blog and I have also noticed a few people have decided to use that area on their own too.
If you have applied for a blogging position and have not been contacted, don’t worry, you will be in the next few days.
I’m also asking KK members/readers to take a look at the posts there and feel free to leave a comment on any blog submission.
I have many questions and need your answers.
Also, a good way to get the hockey talk going in August.
Check out my NHL.com blog today.
On August 1, 2006, I did my first blog at NHL.com.
I still pinch myself everyday and today, I review some of the emails I have received over the years.
It may be late July but I am thinking hockey today at my NHL.com blog.
I answered a few questions from readers regarding all things Twitter at my NHL.com blog today.
The off-ice action will soon pick up. Read about at my NHL.com blog today.
from Bill Tiller of the Ice Man at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
Should the Atlanta Thrashers issue press credentials to bloggers who write about the team?
This question periodically gets kicked around the blogosphere from time to time. Those who supports such an idea believe it would allow them gain certain insight and information for their readers and would help the team tap into this new form of on-line journalism. There are some who even feel that these blogs…specifically sports blogs… are a natural evolution away from the so-call mainstream media….
Recently I asked a handful of these on-line journalist that make up Thrasherville’s “internet news agencies” what their thoughts were on the subject of press creds for bloggers.
from Andrew Mager of ZDNet,
If you know anything about sports, you know that people are obsessed with their favorite teams. If you know anything about hockey, that level of passion is exponentially increased.
Of the four major sports, the NHL has definitely done the best job of engaging with their fans in the social media world. Their Twitter and Facebook accounts are more active than the oil spill in the gulf (too soon?)
The face behind the National Hockey League’s social media presence is Steph Bagley, from Vaynermedia in New York. When I spoke with her today, she said “I can’t go to the party, I have to watch the game tonight.” Tough job huh?
While the Flyers and Blackhawks fight for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Bagley will be focused on Twitter and Facebook, replying to messages and sharing fan’s thoughts.
Who wins and get ready fans for the on-ice action.
Read about it in my NHL.com blog today.
