2017-2018 Content Announcements

After a nice long off-season we’re ready to come back and provide content for the 2017-2018 basketball season. Thanks for coming back to visit. 

We’re happy to be back for yet another season of Bonnies basketball coverage and look forward to following a team that should, if all goes well, compete for the Atlantic 10 title as well as for a place in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012. The expectations are high and the fan base is anticipating a potentially historic year from the Brown and White.

As we venture into our third straight full season of coverage we’re going to be making some content changes. 

In short, we’re going to be posting less articles on the website, shifting the type of articles we post, and using Twitter more to connect with our growing fan base on that social media platform. Additionally, we plan to produce a few podcasts this year as well. 

We’re going to be leaving the full blown game previews and recaps to other folks, such as J.P Bulter at the Olean Times Herald and GoBonnies.com and instead, try to provide more analysis and column-type articles.

We plan to churn out content on Saturdays and Sundays each week of the season regularly, and then post during the whenever the mood strikes us. Think of the website as the “Sunday Times” with random additional postings during the week.This will of course include breaking news and posting other tidbits of information regarding the team.

We’re confident that this shift in coverage will provide the fans with a different type of content that they can’t get anywhere else on the internet. 

If you’re on Twitter and don’t follow us, please do so @Bonablog. We now have nearly 3,000 followers and are growing in that space in  both in terms of content and followers. Twitter allows us to put out quick takes, break news, and best of all, truly interact with all of our followers in real time. We’ve come to love our Twitter handle and being able to create live discussions and debates with fans about the team. 

We recognize that the way folks consume content is different and ever shifting, and a vast majority of our “followers” are now Twitter based. We will try to cater to that audience as much as possible this year, while still using the website to provide that more traditional content each week. This will allow us to hit on both sides of our readership. 

We thank you for coming back for yet another season of coverage and look forward to enjoying the ride with you once again.

This should be a very exciting season of St. Bonaventure Basketball.

As always,

Go Bonas!
