At least one new blog is launched every second, making it virtually impossible to keep up to speed with what’s new. That also means newbies have an uphill battle in getting YOUR attention. Here are some blogosphere newcomers:
Measure for Measure: The New York Times launches ‘How to Write a Song and Other Mysteries,’ authored by four prolific song writers:
Andrew Bird, Suzanne Vega, Rosanne Cash and Darrell Brown.
According to the paper, the blog hopes to “pull back the curtain on the creative process as [these songwriters] write about their work on songs in the making.”
AnimalsNeedHelp: A 100% not-for-profit blog that is dedicated to the prevention of animal cruelty and pet issues worldwide. The venue aims to education people about the companies that still do animal testing, use animal’s skins in the design of fashion apparel and keep animals locked in tiny cages for food or entertainment. All money raised goes to charity.
Shine: Yahoo’s latest blog venture targets women between the ages of 25 and 54. Think Cosmo quiz in a fancy blog template. Shine features the best writers and bloggers in women’s publishing. There is also a social community aspect so women can hook up and do us men in (joke).
Know of any good blogs that have recently launched?
