Do You Have a Running Blog?

Posted by Filed Under: From the desk of the blogfather, Web Site Announcements

Most people around here know about the Running Blog Family Directory (RBF) – the web’s most ginormous list of running blogs.

Until yesterday, the RBF was a one trick pony – it was just a big ol’ list.

Well, the RBF just went through a huge upgrade. It’s now search-able in a big, big way. You can now search for blogs by:

  • Location (city/town/province/state/country)
  • Gender
  • Favorite Distance to Race
  • Ability
  • Tags/Key Words

And, much more!

But, we need your help to realize the RBFs full potential. Why? Because, right now, we have over 1600 links in the RBF that don’t contain things like:

  • Location (city/town/province/state/country)
  • Gender
  • Favorite Distance to Race
  • Ability
  • Tags/Key Words

So we’re asking every blogger (you!) to submit a new listing for their blog. Don’t worry about the old duplicate – we’ll remove that.

By signing up again, you’ll make it easier for people to find you. That’s when the RBF will really rock!

So get on the RBF train and sign up (again!) today (and make sure to tell all your running blog friends)! NOTE: It’s REALLY important that you use the proper CASE when you use the RBF sign up form!

About Mark Iocchelli

Also known as the "Running Blogfather", I'm a 40-something marathoner who has beaten stress fractures and terrible shin splints. Now I'm running double the mileage with no pain - and I'm getting faster. I love to talk about running form and Arthur Lydiard. I also enjoy taking photographs, have a beautiful (and very patient!) wife, and am the proud father of two crazy kids. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments about the site.
