I led a discussion of sports liveblogging at the Oakland Press Tuesday. I asked on Twitter and facebook for some advice and examples. I got a few helpful responses, which I have collected here:
By email, Phil Heron, editor of the Daily Times of Delaware County, Pa., responded: “Our best results on live sports blogging often involves local high school action. We developed a big audience for the state high school hoops championships. There was no TV and games were played at State College, meaning a lot of local people could not make it. We got big audiences – and a lot of reader input — in our live blogs.”
