Consolidation in the European blog market: 20six and myblog.de merge
News from Europe that pan-European blog provider and market leader 20six have merged with German blog firm myblog.de (translation) after what is described as “intense talks” last week giving the new company more than 60% of the market share in Germany alone, with a strong presence in the UK, France and The Netherlands. The move comes on the heels of the recent acquisition of TypePad’s European franchise uBlog by SixApart.

It looks like the blog market is getting hotter and hotter. I just don’t such comapanis companies can make a difference, with so many good free application such as wordpress for instance.
