So you like the limelight? If you are a current tennis blogger (or want to start blogging), let the power of Tennisopolis work for you! Most blogs posted on the Tennisopolis network get featured on the homepage of Tennisopolis where 44,000 members can see what you have to say. Plus all featured blog posts get tweeted to our 3,800 followers! If you have your own independent blog site, feel free to post a link to your blog at the end of your post.
Here's how to get your blog posts featured on Tennisopolis. Write about Tennis. This website is about tennis. Not sex, not drugs, not rock and roll (unless you're talking about Safin!) If you can write about tennis then everyone is happy and nobody gets hurt. So bring on your ideas! What new racquet did you buy lately? Who's your favorite (or least favorite) player? Tell us about it. Have you reached a milestone in your own tennis skill? Anything you can think of.
Include horizontal photos
Nothing tells the story better than a photo. Remember, this is going on the main page so it's gotta look good. The format of this site favors horizontal photos like this one or this one. Use 'em. The dimensions are 500 pixels wide by 130-170 pixels tall. This is especially important at the beginning of your post. Here's how you get the image just right. After you upload it, you'll need to set the width. To do so, click on the icon at the right of the top menu bar - it looks like this <>. In the code, make sure that the image width and height are set to your image size. 130 to 170 tall x 500 pixels wide. Otherwise your banner will get squished.
In the rest of your story text, you can include normal-proportioned photos (square or vertical) lower down.
It's all about style, baby!
Please set your text to 10pt arial.
If you have your own blog site (outside of Tennisopolis), please include the entire text of the blog here and feel free to embed links to your own site.
Great! You did all that? Here's how it works. Tennisopolis is run by a core group of 4 Mods who ocassionaly write blogs and search for other good blogs for the front page. If one of the Mods sees your story and likes your story, we'll feature it on the homepage. If you think you have a blog post that deserves the limelight, let us know and we'll check it out.
