Resources: As you develop your sports blogging site, you’ll want to have a quality computer, access to the internet, and comfortable place to work (unless you’ll be working remotely from the ball field and then a bleacher will work just fine!)
Some of our local ball fields even have WiFi connectivity which will help with your blogging business. Utilize your current knowledge of sports, share the passion of your team, and provide your knowledge about the strategy of the game to communicate with your audience.
A good quality camera with a telephoto or zoom lens would be helpful to catch terrific action photos to share on your blog.

Or maybe you’ve just studied the sport or your team over the years and have a wealth of knowledge in your head you can share with your fellow sportsmen (and women!)
If you need to brush up on your writing skills, head to your local community college or university for a journal writing class to get some practical hands-on writing assignments.
