Royals blogs, Facebook, and Twitter
Back on February 13, we told you about the Royals page on Facebook. We had a few hundred Facebook fans at that point. Needless to say, you found us! Three months later, we’re at 59,226 fans (and counting!!!) Way to go, Royals fans! Many of our ATH readers now see the posts on Facebook first. That’s great, just remember to stop by and pay us a visit from time to time at http://royals.mlblogs.com/!
In March, ATH joined other MLBlogs on Twitter. Our ‘tweets’ range from links to our posts to the lineup to the latest Sonic Steal a Slush…check us out at aroundthehornkc! The Royals marketing department also has a Twitter page at KC_Royals. They do a great job of keeping everyone updated on the latest promotions and events at the stadium.
Twitter is a random site…you never know who will start following you. A few days ago, Royals prospect Chris ‘Disco’ Hayes started following us at aroundthehornkc. We returned the favor (his handle is discohayes). We interviewed Chris for Royals Gameday Magazine during Spring Training. He has a great personality, which you can learn more about in the new gameday which goes on sale TONIGHT at the stadium!
Chris is one of our fellow bloggers on mlblogs.com (http://discohayes.mlblogs.com/). We told him about the MLBlog rankings during our interview. It seems to have hit a competitive nerve as he has mentioned it in a few recent posts!
