SB Nation (Sports Blog Nation)[2] is an American sports network owned and operated by Vox Media. It has more than 300 web sites, which are maintained primarily by part-time contract writers. They submit posts, facilitate dialogue and interact with commenters. At a kickoff event in February 2009, there were about 185 blogs. ComScore, the Reston-based tracker of consumer Internet habits, tallied 5.8 million unique visitors to SB Nation websites during the month of November 2010. That 208 percent increase over the 1.9 million unique visitors in November 2009 made SB Nation the fastest growing sports website the company tracked at that time.[3]

As of December 2010, SB Nation had 12 million unique visitors and over 100 million page views monthly. Expansion plans include mobile and going global, into the "European Premier (soccer) League" [sic]. [4]

SB Nation purchased Outsports in 2013.[5]
