Our pals at Titleist have now gotten into the blogosphere with the Titleist Tour Blog at www.titleistblog.com. The Tour Blog started out yesterday and already has some posts from a few big names like Bob Vokey. I was happy to hear from them and hear that they have actually been following HOG for over a year.
What I already like about what they are doing is that they are using a lot of photos. Any regular reader here knows I love to use a lot of eye candy to support my ramblings.
They’re using WordPress, which is a great choice. HOG runs on WordPress.
What I Hope To See
Titleist will certainly generate a lot of interest if they manage to put prototypes, upcoming gear information and photos on the blog. I’d also like to read about how they’re working with individual pros and what custom work or setups they have for their equipment.
If they truly want to “blog” in the purest sense, they’ll cross link other blogs and generate a blogroll. I can’t fully call a site a “blog” which doesn’t have a blogroll. I realize a big company like that might have a hard time doing that because of so many legal or “corporate” issues, and the possibility of linking to sites which may promote their competitor’s products. We’ll see what they do in that department.
Best of luck to the Titleist Tour Blog and welcome to the “blogosphere.”
