Baltimore, How Can BSL, & BMBD Help You?

Baltimore, how can Baltimore Sports and Life (BSL), and Baltimore Metro Business Development (BMBD) help you?

BSL is dedicated to analysis and discussion on the Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Ravens, and the University of Maryland.

While our focus remains on those teams, as of June 2016, our coverage has expanded to other sports, pop culture, and more!

BSL is a 5x Baltimore Sun Mobbies Award winner. That includes wins of the Pro Sports Category in 2012 and ’13; and being named Baltimore’s best Blog Overall in ’12.

Over the past 3 years, BSL has annually averaged 1.83M Pageviews, 238k Sessions, 78k Users, with an Average Session Duration of 11 minutes, and 3 seconds.

Our Facebook Page has 5,300 likes and our Twitter account has 2,000 followers.

We are now offering the ability for sponsors to write a monthly article at the site. This gives you the ability to directly advertise to our audience.


- Our current contributors can be found here. Articles from those contributors, will be linked to your Social Media accounts.

- Links to your website on our Front Page, along with our Message Board.

- Game Threads for the Orioles, Ravens, and Terps will be sponsored by you. Thus creating more opportunities for us to mention, and link to you.

- Whenever you have something you want to advertise; let us know, and we will push that to our audience.

- Five podcasts were launched during April. Live reads are available.

In July, 2015 we founded BMBD – a networking group currently comprised of 200 +/- Executives from throughout the region.

Courtesy of Chesapeake Bank of Maryland, BMBD’s next meeting is July 12th at Family Meal Baltimore with Sagamore Development as our featured guest speaker, discussing the Port Covington project.
