Top 100 Sports Bloggers on Twitter List

The crew at @ballhyped spent the past week combing through our favorite blogs and Twitter lists to come up with the Best Sports Bloggers on Twitter.

OK, let's get this out of the way right at the top. This is a WORKING LIST that's not scientific by any means, and I'd like to add to it (which is what we've been doing ever since releasing it), so if you know of someone who was left off mention them in the comments below and we’ll update it. Just make sure they have enough followers and are independent sports bloggers who write about topics that have national appeal.

Obviously your number of Twitter followers does not determine the quality of a particular sports blog, but it helps show what kind of audience it has and how many people are interested in what the blog/blogger have to say. And in this day of age, when everyone and their mom has a blog, it's just an easier way to sort through clutter.

We did try to avoid mainstream media/journalists here and focus on independent bloggers who blog about sports as a hobby or passion, because those are the bloggers who are more likely to engage and interact with you on Twitter and care to network with other bloggers. It is what it is.

Sports bloggers who would like to build up their following should sign up for  BallHyped.com, where you can post links to your blog posts and get FOLLOWED links and promotion/exposure on-site and the social mediasphere. We also have a handful or blogger resources just like this post in our Blogger Resources section.

You can follow this complete list on twitter here: top-100-sports-bloggers. And be sure to follow @ballhyped for all the latest from the sports blogosphere.
