When I arrived at work this morning (around lunchtime GMT) I turned my computer on and did what I normally do and clicked on Forever Charlton
to see what the morning's news was regarding all things Addick.
What amazed me was the number of links to websites and blogs for today's Charlton related stories, and we haven't even played for close to 2 weeks.
The birth of the new season and the way Charlton have began it has seen an influx of new Charlton flavoured blogs. Encouraged by our fantastic start fans have taken to their keyboards and started tapping away and it has been hard to keep up.
Recent additions include Kinky Afro
, An Addick For Life
, SE7 Dreams
, Charlton Athletic Online
, South London's Finest
, Valley Floyd James
and Valley Floyd Road
and the sardonic Frankie Valley
have been around a bit longer and even ex-Addick and champion gurner
Andy Hunt has started a blog writing some interesting stuff on his life in Belize
Like our beloved Addicks it will be interesting to see if they can last the pace. Quite a few Charlton bloggers fell by the wayside during the early knockings of last season and as experienced blogger's know bloggers block can be sudden and frustrating.
However it is quite a phenomenon and I don't expect many clubs have the kind of blogging community that we have. Keep it up.
