Syntagma Media, you know â€“ the blog network with the rainbow headers that burn your eyes â€“ are reorganizing. In a recent blog post they announced their transformation from blog network to “continuously updated, online distributed magazine”.
At the moment that feels like visionary bullshit, as all I see is “channels” that coordinate blogs. Online magazine? Yeah, sure, but then youâ€™ll have to name all blogs that way and although that might not be such a bad idea in some cases, it sure feels like playing with names in the Syntagma camp.
Anyway, Syntagmaâ€™s reorganization is interesting. We have a whole bunch of blog networks fighting for readers and that brings a need to focus and to find your very own niche so that youâ€™ll not disappear in the buzz. Syntagmaâ€™s â€œonline distributed magazineâ€? seems to be a new name for same old, but it might do the job. And that being attracting more readers of course.
Weâ€™ll see how it turns out this â€œautumn/fallâ€?.
