Fielder's Choice 2

Welcome to Fielder's Choice 2, the Blogger / Blogspot version of Fielder's Choice Baseball Card Blog. The blog will continue to be hosted by WordPress, but I wanted to start this version too because I like a couple of the features of Blogger / Blogspot that aren't available in WordPress:
  • Followers. I want to have followers. I love going to other people's blogs and seeing the smiling faces of the blog's followers. I love to "follow" blogs that I like. And now my readers can be my followers too!
  • A blog roll that allows me (and my readers) to easily see which blogs have been updated most recently and the title of their most recent posts. I used to have links to RSS feeds from other blogs on my blog in WordPress, but it caused the blog to take an unacceptable amount of time to load. That problem doesn't occur on Blogger / Blogspot. So now I can simply view "Fielder's Choice 2" to see what blogs I read have been updated most recently. That will make it much easier for me to keep up with the posts on other card blogs.
I don't plan to write any posts on this blog (besides this initial one), but it'll always be here if you want to check out the improved blog roll or if you want to become a follower. And I do hope that you'll become a follower!


  1. Good job - will this be your primary blog - I like your stuff and enjoy reading it. I also want to start a blog but dont know how to start one and all that stuff that comes with it. Good job!!!

    Victor - no, the WordPress blog is my primary one. I just created this one for the followers and the blogroll.

  7. I am honored to be your 12th follower... I like having followers, too. Call it ego or whatever ya want, it is a nice pleasant and fuzzy feeling! That said, would you consider adding my blog to your blogroll? The blogroll is my favorite feature of blogspot-I have 168 blogs on there and I think most people go to mine just to click on others...
