I just got a note from graphic designer Gary Finkler, who has started a new sports cartoon blog called 7th Inning Sketch. As luck would have it, his first was on the recent PGA Championship. It reminds me a lot of classic early 20th century comics, such as those done by Bill Gallo—using art rather than words to tell the readers what happened.
Finker is off to a good start. Now comes the hard part of blogging—producing material on a regular schedule without fail. It’s very easy to say “I’ll do it tomorrow” in this “business.” Tomorrow then becomes the next day, and the next, and before you know it, your blog is just one of the estimated 126 million abandoned blogs. That’s 95% of all blogs ever started. I’ll put a shameless plug in for my own site here. GolfBlogger.Com: Eight years of blogging every day. More than seven thousand articles. Six million words.
