Found a Good Article On Bleacher? Why Don't You Pass It On?

We have all written an article that we believe to be some of our best work. However, it just didn't get the exposure we hoped for or the read count we anticipated it might.

I'm sure we have all been frustrated when we see our article disappear amongst the 17 match reports of the same game and all seemingly saying exactly the same thing.

We spend hours researching and re-writing sentences to tweak an article to perfection only for it to slip off the radar much quicker than we hoped and disappear, never to be seen again.

Word of mouth is a powerful tool and in a community driven website it can be key to forging relationships and gaining a reputation amongst the masses.

I started a series of articles called The Liverpool Community Spotlight which were designed to highlight some of our community's most talented writers.

The Spotlight would interview the writer in question about their football experiences, ranging from early childhood memories and why they began supporting their team through to highlighting some of their best work, hopefully giving readers a second chance if they missed an article the first time round.

Another series I tried to get off the ground was The Liverpool Community Archive which was an idea to help promote some of the better articles in our community which managed to slip through the net.

This brings me back to the title of this article.

From now on, if I happen across a worthy article that I think deserves to be put back in the Bleacher Report window, I am going to pass it on to at least one other person with the request that, if they liked the article as well, they pass it on to at least one other person on their fan list.

I am hoping that you will join me in this quest and we can really start helping each other out whilst hopefully forging a much stronger World Football Community.

We are all here for the same love of the beautiful game and we could all use a helping hand from time to time.
