I admit, I am impressed.
Professional basketball player Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat has a very classy blog with some interesting, well-written, thoughtful articles about various aspects of his life.
He even provides a nice motivation for why he started blogging. In fact, I play right into the issue he is trying to correct with this post’s title, labeling him as a basketball player first and foremost. But Chris explains he is more than that and wants to blog about his family, cooking, music, travel, fashion, and technology.
But it was this blog post on Best Beers for a Barbecue that got my attention. Chris clearly knows (and loves) various beer varieties. He also writes up his opinions with a casual yet informed voice. Very good.
So here it is: Chris, please consider joining us at the 2016 Beer Bloggers Conference which takes place in your current home state of Florida, July 8-10 in Tampa. You could come be a normal beer-loving blogger for a weekend and not a professional athlete. You’ll learn quite a bit about blogging, taste some amazing beers, and meet some other normal dudes and gals interested in writing about beer. (And if you prefer cooking, consider our July 28-31 International Food Blogger Conference in Sacramento.)
If I have just one gripe with Mr. Bosh’s blog, it is that he “welcomes our comments and thoughts” but comments are not enabled on his blog. However, comments on blogs have declined in popularity over the years anyway and he is already engaged on Twitter with 2.5 million followers!
