Individuals read blogs at work, at home and everywhere they can find a Wi-Fi connection because people want to bond. Often this connection involves a large element of interaction – by leaving comments and following the conversation. There are over 160 million blogs on the Internet. For golfers, you have over 25,000 blogs related to golf – playing, equipment, advice and course recommendations. As a regular golfer, you will want to read the best golf blogs, but how do you decide which to read regularly and those to ignore?
Blogs are attractive for golfers because they provide a personal touch, which is missing while reading from an article in a magazine or a newspaper or watching television or YouTube.
The human being behind a blog is showing you their own personal character and opinion while offering tips or tricks, to help you improve your golfing.
Once you begin to follow a blog regularly, you will know that you are not alone and that you will be sharing your stories, not only with the people writing the blog, but with all of their readers across the globe. People are curious about the ideas individuals wish to share and look forward to a regular opportunity to find out more about their favorite subject.
