For those who may be reading this for the first time, the b5media blogging network is a joint owned company of Jeremy Wright of ensight.org, perhaps most famous to readers for being denied entry into the United States because he declared that his occupation was “blogging”, Darren Rowse, who many would know as the 6 figure blogger who writes the blog Problogger.net, and your’s truly.
Its a big committment for me after writing the Blog Herald as a solo effort for 2 1/2 years, and more recently under the Weblog Empire banner. Weblog Empire is now pretty much absorbed into the b5media network and I’ll be making a formal announcement about this later next week, but certainly blogs like The Gadget Blog, and the Windows Vista Weblog has already gone across to the new network.
Why give up Weblog Empire? well already b5media has more blogs than I could ever personally manage…about 22 at last count, and growing weekly. The opportunity to work with people who are literally leaders in the field, although they don’t always get credit as such amongst the A-List (and those who put together such lists….hint..hint) Jeremy Wright and Darren Rowse is an amazing opportunity that is already paying benefits. I’m not one for hype, but I can say seriously that this is big time and we are doing, and are going to do big things.
As Blog Herald readers, naturally, I invite you to join me for the ride, it isn’t always pretty, and if I didn’t say it like it was you’d abandon me at the drop of a hat, but here it is: I won’t be selling out, and you’ll still see the same raw blogging news you’ve come to expect.
