Starting out as a podcast in 2011 following a conversation in a pub, Taw The Anfield Wrap is an award-winning blog that has built a reputation as a trusted independent voice around everything to do with Liverpool Football Club. The site’s podcasts have been downloaded 10 million times, and the content is richer, broader and more widely read – but Taw retains that feeling of a chat over a pint or two.

Football Talk is a blog that provides all the latest news, including match previews, match reports, transfer rumours, injury updates – but its focus is very much on the summit of the Premier League, the teams fighting for the title and those all-important champions league places. Although Football Talk does make room for other teams, and occasionally other sports, this conversation is very much about England’s Top Four.
Founded by Ash Davidson and Jonny Shepherd, Bread and Butter Football.com came about because they simply loved talking about the sport and thought it might make an interesting blog.

The fundamentals of working with bloggers are the same as with traditional journalists at traditional media outlets: respect their schedules; take time to read their material to learn their interests; and only contact them if/when they want to be contacted.
