Last week I posted a note about our annual Best Brazilian jiu-jitsu Blog of the Year. I thought to myself, “Why not share the blogs I keep an eye on so others can see if they like them too?”
So, I’m attaching something to this post called an OPML file. Basically it’s a file you upload (“import”) into Google Reader. (I can’t promise it will work in other readers.) This OPML file contains the RSS feeds of more than 60 BJJ blogs. Here’s what you do:
- Download the OPML File of BJJ Blogs Here and save it to your desktop.
- Open Google Reader.
- Click Manage Subscriptions in the bottom left of Google Reader.
- Now find Import/Export and upload the file you just saved to your desktop.
After you import this file, Google Reader will display the contents of the newly updated BJJ blog whenever any of these BJJ bloggers write something new!
The one thing all of these bloggers have in common is a love for BJJ. There’s a lot of different styles of writing in here, as folks share their jiu-jitsu experiences in their personal ways. Among the list are BJJ bloggers from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North America.
Now don’t get me wrong – I’m not endorsing any of these or saying they’re great. I’m sharing for the sake of sharing.
Take this list, taste some of the blogs on there and see what you think. Keep the ones you like, and ditch the ones you don’t. At a minimum you should have a better idea of how people experience BJJ in other places around the world. At best, you may make some new friends who share your love for jiu-jitsu!
If there are some you know about that are not on this list, definitely share it by posting it in the comments below!
