I've had to turn down a few requests for inclusion here on the GBBL.
And I'll tell you why I did.
The blogs submitted were firearms related blogs, however there was no substantive or real content. It was just content that almost any gun mag you buy at the store or one the publishers website would have.
Or it was overtly business or commercial in nature.
If you go through the blogs listed, you won't find very many that are tied implicitly to a business. Granted the are a few, however they have other real content that is not directly related to trying to get you to buy something. That is why they have been included.
Also all of the blogs listed regularly update with original content. Not a copy/paste of other sites content.
And while many of the blogs listed don't write exclusively about firearms, they do have in their archives many good firearms related posts.
So to get listed, you must have firearms and shooting related content. The content must be original. And it must be updated regularly.
As I wrote above, there are a couple that are of a commercial nature. However their content is not all commercial.
That is the standard you need to find for your blog.
Good, original content with firearms and shooting coverage. And no overt commercial or business related posts.
If you are wondering what I am talking about, Every Day No Days Off or Endo is one of the "Business" blogs listed. What is his business? He sells firearms related apparel. But he also has content which is NOT related to his business. Quite a bit, in fact.
So if you have a blog an would like to be listed, feel free to click on my name to go to my profile and then click on my e-mail address OR click up at the top where it says Meet the Mods and scroll down to where my e-mail address is listed and click on that.
We review every blog submitted and if it is something questionable I check with the Boss to get his feelings. If we both feel that it's not a good match I send an e-mail explaining why. If we do add you to the GBBL I also let you know by e-mail as well.
