Since we are talking about blogs....

Postby FLPensFan on Tue Aug 14, 2018 6:24 pm

So, following in the footsteps of Pens Fan Sweden, I too have created a blog. This was actually my intent about 4 years ago when I first created my current Twitter handle, but some life/work stuff got in the way. I made an attempt this past year, mid-season to get the blog off the ground, but honestly, I chose the wrong platform for what I needed.

Over the past week, I setup a free Wordpress blog to get myself off the ground quickly, before the season started. For me, if you can't tell, I like to talk and write about the sport. I'm not doing this for money. I have no pressure to do anything but share my thoughts as I see fit, and the blog should allow me to go into a little more details on some topics. If people want to read it, great. If not, I'm not striving for any type of views or page hits right now.

Hope you guys will take a peek from time to time, and I hope to be able to provide some Penguins and NHL thoughts several times a week during the season. I also may take some of my novels that I tend post here, and just throw it on the blog and post the link, rather than writing War and Peace length posts here. Still getting used to Wordpress, so some site details may be a bit "under construction" at first until I get some kinks ironed out.

Where were you when Faceoff-Factor was in it's prime? Jesse and I could have used your insights!

Great news! You're my favorite poster on these boards for sure, I'll visit your blog once a day at least, just like LGP.com.

Good luck on building on your stuff.

I wonder if RJ would merge the Pens blogs into this site and you guys like this site. Like create a linked community of blogs/Pens site?

Ah yes, I remember Faceoff-Factor. I would say I hadn't come out of my writing/stats hockey shell at that point like I have in the past few years.
