Syndicated Blogging

Newspapers are looking to BlogBurst to provide expert blog commentary on travel, women's issues, technology, food, entertainment and local stories, areas where publishers may not have dedicated staff...

I think it is interesting that blogs have become so important.

When I first read Moulton's post I thought that this could lead to terrible newspaper information. But after reading the article and learning that the site will have its own staff to review and edit blogs I was a little less worried but I still am.

I thought anyone can create and write on a blog. If that is possible then are these special bloggers.

But what happens to journalists. Are they going to disappear? I don't think so. They are just going to have become more competitive. I also just got the idea that this idea is for getting more commentary. That doesn't mean they will report all of the news. I think this will just allow more opinions to be read or heard.
