Talking Cubs Baseball Since 2003

Best Cubs Blog of 2004

Written by , Posted in General

Last year I ran a competition to see which Cub blog was the best. Being new to the whole blogging scene, my main goal was to generate enough talk and links to my site to get it off the ground and validate my sense of writing. It worked, and I was able to generate an increase in daily visits. Now, with a full year under my belt I want the competition to be purely about the other sites. I want to showcase some of the other writers out there, because there are a lot of good ones. As a result, I felt compelled to narrow this years list down to the top 8 blogs in my opinion. Voting will begin Jan. 1st with each IP address allowed to vote once every 24 hours. So, in the Chicago tradition, vote early and vote often. Polls close January 15th.

The Field

You may be wondering why a few big names are curiously absent. So, let me explain.

Cub Reporter – is not included due to its superior fan base.

Cubs Chronicle – very new and not really a blog so much as a news site.

Uncouth Sloth – Simply too much perverse and crude content. I respect his cub opinions and will link to him, but I simply can’t crown him best cubs blog. Sorry Rob

Big Red C – joined cub reporter.
