List of Blog Networks v4 (January 2006)

It’s been 4 months since my last effort of putting together a list of blog networks and much has changed in this time.

For the first time we saw the launch of a site dedicated to listing blog networks, we’ve seen the rise of blog-ring style blog networks, and the demise of a few other networks.

Given the various models now emerging in this growing industry within the blogosphere, and also to avoid being flamed by the members of 9rules, Ive decided to split the list into three categories: multi-author corporate networks, multi-author collective networks (the web 2.0 version of a blog ring), and individual writer networks. The third category is of particular interest as we are also starting to see individuals with multiple blogs branding their networks, which shows a maturity in the market. In terms of accuracy in relation to determining the difference between multi-author and individuals with multiple blogs, I’ve determined the difference based on looking at a number of blogs at each network. Usually if there is more than one author on a network you are going to see different names on different blogs, however I recognise that this isn’t the most accurate way of measuring the difference, if anyone needs a correction on the list let me know.

  • Doggone it Duncan – I wrote a nice piece today about how much I appreciate you and then you go and cast a dark light on 9rules members?

    That’s off-base… why, out of 78 networks, do you have to single out 9rules members as those who will flame you? Other than Scrivs or Mike or Colin, hardly anyone else in 9rules ever makes a comment here. And Scrivs, Mike and Colin don’t flame you.

    That certainly isn’t true of some of the others you mentioned.

    Dude… ???

  • Just a tiny correction, which isn’t your fault, Duncan: Syntagma Media was a single-author net, but our tenth blog, Writers’ Blog Alliance is written by its members (106 at last count). So SynMed is now a hybrid.

  • Not that I care too much :-) But BizNicheMedia and Dotmarketer both employ several writers, and should probably be in the Multi-Author Corporate Networks section.

  • Duncan,

    We’d be glad to see you come thru KY in October, but I’m sure it won’r work with your schedule.

    Also, could you make the link for Hightide work ?

    Thanks !
