Note to BJJ Bloggers

by Caleb on July 8, 2008

You remember that we hold an annual Best Brazilian jiu-jitsu Blog of the Year, right? At The FightWorks Podcast we firmly believe that we all benefit from the cultural contribution that BJJ bloggers offer, and every December, a Best BJJ Blog of the Year is announced.

“But Caleb, it’s only July! Why are you going on about something that doesn’t happen until December?”

Relax, family. It’s important because I see the quality of BJJ blogs out there dramatically better than in the past already despite only being 7 months into the year. There are men and women all over the world who’ve been sharing and contributing their BJJ stories, experiences, thoughts, and interviews and I want them to do what they can to best position themselves for later this year.

Also, if you have a BJJ blog and want to be on our radar here for consideration for December honors, please post a comment below so we know you’re out there! We have a pretty good list of BJJ blogs in our RSS reader here at FightWorks Podcast headquarters, but I don’t want any good ones to go unnoticed!

This one isn’t mine, but I’ve been impressed with the frequency of updates on Luke’s blog. He trains here in the UK, in Essex:

You know about mine I think, but for purely selfish reasons, I’ll poke my nose in here again!
Posting frequency has slowed lately due to a broken foot and a sweltering, energy-sapping summer, but I still have plenty of time before December!

Some that I want to make sure are on your radar are a few that I read diligently:

John Will – BJJ Australia
Slidey’s Training log
The Fightworks Podcast (Does sucking up help?)

I read a lot of other BJJ blogs, but they don’t update as often as these. These blogs are always updated with fresh content, distinguishing them from others, in my opinion.

Thank you guys for the input! You’ve included some good ones so far for sure.

Any others?

What a coincidence that you asked about that. I just started one up two weeks ago. I also just want to see who else has a blog.

Here is mine that you can take a look at.

Just to put mine out there,

I would like to recommend my friend’s blog.

This one is brand spanking new, but I thought I’d run it up the flagpole anyway… much more to come, that’s for sure.

We’re just a group of folks in the middle of the U.S. who have a pssion for Jiu-Jitsu and love to blog about it.
