    Here's some something to blog about — anything.
    A blog can be 6 inches or 60 inches, it doesn't matter. The day before North Podunk plays South Podunk, write a quick blog about the game and ask readers who they think will win the game. After the game, post your opinions about the game or stats that didn't make it to your story.
    Be personal in your blog. Write is as if you're talking directly to the fans. Tell them how the concession stand food gave you gas or how you just bought the new Kanye West CD and it's must better than the last one.
    Do some kind of rankings. Either top teams in the area or top players to watch.
    Do a top 10 list. People love when you rank stuff and ask fans to post their top 10.
    Do a Q&A with someone in the community each week and post it on your blog. It could be five questions or 15 questions. You say you haven't been there long enough to know you're surroundings, this will be a great way to make contacts.
    Ask players silly questions you might not normally ask them related to a story and post them on your blog.
    Just read other people's blogs, just about every paper has one now, and pull some ideas.

    I think this is a good example of what you're looking for, http://jcsports.blogspot.com. Looks like it has been nominated for an award to two. Best of luck.
