Spencer Hall has been a fixture at Blogs with Balls events because he pulls no punches, is extremely funny, and has been a pioneer of what it means to be a sports blogger and writer. He is a prolific writer, and his knowledge of college football is second to none. Spencer’s success led him from writing his own site to being a major contributor and editor of SB Nation – the network of sites founded by Markos Moulatsas in 2003 and helmed by Jim Bankoff that is changing the face of sports blogging every day. He has a Master’s Degree in International Affairs, taught ESL in Taiwan, and between 2001 and 2007 worked for two different agencies that supported refugees. His work with SB Nation brings the perspective of what networks of sports blogs have done to lift up great writers and provide an organized approach to content creation and dissemination.
