Blog Bloke Joins the BlogBurst Network

It’s official! Blog Bloke has been accepted into the BlogBurst network. BlogBurst is a new service from Pluck that distributes blog articles for use by newspaper publishers in the news or feature sections of their online services, as well as print editions.

“I think you are going to see hundreds of newspapers accessing the content we produce by the end of the year,” said Panos, Pluck chief executive.

What did I tell you? The lines between mainstream media are blurring even as I speak.

Why BlogBurst? Because it is doing what the Bloke has been preaching. They are bringing the two mediams together instead of squabbling over turf wars:

In recent years, established media have struggled to face the threat that blogs would chip away at their readership, as people turn to online media for their news. Simultaneously, classified advertising, newspapers’ traditional revenue source, has come under attack from online services.

Meanwhile, bloggers have played a big role in exposing the failings of conventional media. For their part, traditional journalists have seen the lack of editorial oversight over individual bloggers as a danger to impartial news reporting.

We are seeing history in the making folks. The melting pot of the old established media with new online technologies. It’s an exciting time to be alive. It’s an exciting time to be a blogger.
