    I'm sure we're all going to be pretty keen to 'Newsjack' the world cup and make sure we use the biggest sporting event in this year's calendar to put ourselves out there and grow those audiences!

    Sourefabric are giving away a free month subscription to their industry standard live blogging platform. Perfect for a long-form sports event.

    If you're not sure how to live blog a large sports event, check this out!

    Would anyone want to read a live blog during the game? Wouldn't fans just want to watch the game?
    Only live blog I'd think about looking at would be Maradona during an Argentina.

    If the World Cup is being played halfway around the world and the USA isn't in it, is it really even happening?
