Wham, Bam, Thank You MLBAM
If, like me, you are delighted with the new MLBlogs set up you may be wondering if there is any way that you could send MLB Advanced Media (who run MLBlogs) some extra cash. I guess that you could argue that the DHL ads that have been running on all our sites is a kind of payment, but it’s never really enough is it?
So why would a multi-million dollar organization make something free? I have 3 scenarios;
1) MLBlogs was losing money so they made it free, cut staffing to the bone and run it as a loss leader.
2) The more bloggers that register the more they can charge for advertising. Free means more blogs which means more ad revenue.
3) Out if the goodness of their hearts.
Whichever one it is, using this site recently has been the equivalent of going from an i-pod back to a walkman,so from today this blog will be moving to here. It’s exciting because it’s got links, and picture of Slough!
