Breaking News Blog Collective is Launched

Posted By Darren Rowse 6th of January 2005 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

One of the projects that I’ve been working on with a number of others over the past two months is Breaking News Blog. Put most simply, the Breaking News Blog project is a collective of bloggers who are each focussing upon a niche news topic. There are currently 17 blogs that are live on the network in four general themes of Technology, Health, Sport and Entertainment and Lifestyle. The latest post from each blog in the collective are presented on the central Breaking News Blog home page but each is an independent blog in its own right at:

Technology Blogs: MP3 PlayersSatellite RadioPDAsRoboticsPrintersVoIP
Health Blogs: Medical ResearchMineral SupplementsDietsMedical Alarms

Sport and Entertainment: America’s CupJessica Simpson

Lifestyle Blogs: Personal FinanceCredit Card NewsLife Insurance NewsCar Insurance News

Also hosted by Breaking News Blog is the Blogger Idol project.

Bloggers in the collective write about areas of personal interest and expertise. Of course there is a financial element to what we do (income stream is largely Adsense, Amazon and other affiliates) but we’re not only interested in the big dollar and are looking forward to some projects in the months ahead that will make a difference to the wider community that we are a part of.

The collective has only been live for a couple of months now but we’re already starting to see some reasonable results as our page ranking builds in Search Engines and as we build relationships with other bloggers and find ourselves on the receiving ends of incoming links. Of course some blogs do better than others but across the board we’ve seen significant growth each week since going live.

Breaking News Blog is not one for a lot of media spin – as a result we’ve not been talking it up of late but rather are quietly working on building quality sites with useful content. In fact we’ve been working so hard on our sites that we’ve forgotten to ‘officially launch’ and publicly announce to the blogosphere that we’re here – so consider us launched – tadarrr!

We are interested in developing relationships with other similarly themed blogs or websites (contact me if you’d like to develop either a sponsorship or link partnership with any of the above blogs – we have page ranks of 5 or 6 on most of them currently).

So stay tuned for further developments – more BNB blogs will be added in the weeks and months ahead. Each blog has its own RSS feed so subscribe to those that interest you and let us know what you think of what we’ve done so far.

  1. Hi Darren

    I find the initiative very interesting – mainly because of 2 things:

    1. If you manage to collect the right sources of information, manage to present them in a suitable GUI, the you will be able to reach out to many readers at a time. Especially the readers who doesn’t use RSS-readers a the target-group for that.
    2. In an internal business context I find a very valid argument using weblogs as intranets, knowledgepools

    Darren – go, go, go. Small adjustments and I’ll buy into the idea 100%

    Best Regards
    Hans Henrik

  2. I am running a network of sites that use blogging software (wordpress), but it is more of a “traditonal” online magazine than a network of blogs. I have an idea for a blog network that i may start in the future.
