Tell us about yourself
Passionate about basket but also about writing, I opened Hoop Diary 7 years ago. First, it was a blog hosted on the website basketsession, and it was one of the “star blogs”. Then, the website was closed and I’ve created Hoop Diary on WordPress, to save all my writings.
I’m still very invested in the basket’s world, as a trainer after being Development Director for a minor ligue.
What is your blog about?
The first posts was really about my experience as a player and as a trainer, and my thoughts about it. My blog also contains videos of my trainings, it allows me to keep them somewhere.
Then, I’ve wanted to share stories around Toulouse’s basket, before they were forgotten. Finally, Hoop Diary became the website for all the pyrenean basket, some of my posts were shared on other websites.
At last, there are many categories on my blog, including “les routards du basket” (I retrace the steps of big players), “Hoop” (where I highlight picturest grounds). This last category gave birth to my Instagram account.
Why did you decide to print your basketball blog?
I’ve always been fascinated by books, in general. A furnished library is the most valuable thing in my house! Print my blog was the chance for me to keep a paper track of my writings and give body to them thanks to the book. I also intend to publish my own book one day, about the pyrenean basket’s history.
How did you know BlookUp?
Thanks to a Valentine’s Day gift! My wife printed my Instagram account, and then I had my blog printed. She’s a blogger too, that’s how she discovered BlookUp.
What are the positive points?
The possibility to sort, organize the posts. It’s very easy.
How can we improve our service?
More choices for the covers (colors, photos…). Some posts were in two different categories, so it was a little hard to classify them.
What do you think of your basketball blook?
The result is good, with quality paper. Regarding the Instagram blook, I think it’s perfect!
What does your family think about your basketball blook?
The feedbacks are very positive, it gives a new life to my blog and allows them to dive into the posts again!
Would your recommend BlookUp?
Yes I would recommend BlookUp, and I will certainly make another blook in a while!
