A Look Ahead…In My Head

 1-28-11                          Blogging in the Year 2015

The Year is 2015. Mark the father of MLBlogs has just taken a position as an assistant to Bud Selig. The powers that be decided that my ideas for the Blogosphere were so cutting edge that I should succeed Mark.

I accepted the job as Top Dog of MLBlogs.com under the condition that I be allowed to stay in Colorado and work from home as often as possible.

They agreed and I devoted myself full-time to changing the way the MLBlogosphere operates.

              Some of my new ideas for the MLBlogosphere include:


MLB press pass 1.gifMLB Media passes for MLBlogs who have reached a certain pre-established level. I believe once you’ve earned it you should be able to step up your game. A MLB Media pass would certainly give a blogger the ability to do that. Promote from within just like the Rockies.

I believe the front page of MLBlogs.com should change frequently. In 2015 a new blogger is featured daily. I remember seeing myself as the “Featured Blog” for the first time and it blew me away. I swear I told everyone on the planet I knew and had them check it out.

Little inspirational stuff like that can spark interest in your blog and really gets your creative juices flowing when you realize you have new readers. 

I would change the “Latest Leaders List” and split it into two categories, American and National League.

Every January there would be an online MLBlogs awards ceremony in which winners for the previous year awards would be announced.

                                       There would be awards for:

Blog of the Year“… One for the National League and one for the American League as voted on by MLBloggers.

 Best Creative use of a Blog

Most improved blogger.

Best Pictures

Best Writing

Best Family Blog

Best Blogger under Eighteen

 I believe in rewarding hard work and I believe supporting the blogging community. Giving MLBloggers some recognition and inspiration is an investment in the future of sports writing/blogging.

                Since we’re visiting the year 2015, here are some highlights.


zack Hample baseballs.JPGZack Hample has become the first person to construct a home built entirely of baseballs. When asked about retiring Zack laughed and said “Are you kidding I still need a garage”.

The Happy Youngster had to switch careers because he was recruited by Major League Baseball as an official Baseball Authenticator.

The Ray Renegade moves from Florida to Cooperstown and fulfills his lifelong dream to be the “Director of Storytelling” at the Baseball Hall of Fame. He couldn’t be happier.

Anyone caught trying to incite “The Wave” is arrested, removed from the stadium and fined $1000.00 .

 Shortly thereafter “REX” the new Rockies mascot is born. Yep he’s a dinosaur like Dinger…only cool.

There are lots more changes in 2015.

Hey D,
Luv all your ideas but think the change from Dinger to Rex is a must. And on the note of Lookin’ Ahead “: RLuv, long time fan of the Rockies and supporter of the Rockpile Rant gets hired on to do Public Relations with the fans attending the games. Her role is to make sure everyone is having a good time and hands out “Special” souvenirs, such as autographed baseballs, tickets to “sold-out” games, and invitations to special Meet and Greets with members of the team.
OK, that’s my fantasy anyways :)

R-LUV-I love the way you rolled with it…This entry was fun to write and yes it’s time for “REX”…D

congrats on the new promo D!Missy

I wish it was a promo Missy…This was written in fun as if it were the year 2015..D

This is fantastic! A future free from the annoyance of the wave at ballparks – that thought is so beautiful it almost brings a tear to my eye. The rest of your future vision is great too, especially a larger role for the best of the bloggers (not that I even think of counting myself in their number, but it would be great for all of us to read the end results!), but the wave part seriously takes the cake.
