Hello and welcome to Rattling Chains, a blog that will be about everything disc golf!
Over the past few months, I’ve searched for a disc golf blog to read and it seems that many blogs were sporadic or weren’t fully disc golf based. There are plenty of forums out there for disc golf, but I couldn’t find a blog that would give me the type of stories and things I had hoped were out there in a blog.
The burning question here is whether or not the disc golf community and the sport in general is ready for a full-time blog on the sport?
After all, it’s played outside and not near the computer.
I hope so.
I found a bunch of disc golf blogs and sent the links to some friends, seeing what they thought and if they thought it would be worth going forth with a project like this.
The many disc golf blogs we visited included ones that were based more on certain stores, players, courses or brands. Though some we visited were updated on a regular basis, many of them were short or didn’t provide content to make us want to go back.
Some photos are nice, but if I just wanted photos, I could search disc golf on Flickr.
And it’s also nice to see what kind of new products stores are getting, but if said store is 500 miles from me, it won’t be easy for me to drive down and have a peek.
Then there’s the National Tour.
If you haven’t seen any NT events, the players are amazing. For this sport to grow, the NT has to take off because that’s where the real exposure comes from.
