Bringing the blogs to Reuters.com users

November 14, 2006
We’ve just launched a new feature on Reuters.com — related postings from leading bloggers in our Health, Technology and Entertainment sections. The blogs are syndicated via Pluck — an aggregation company Reuters has taken a stake in. We’ve been working closely with Pluck editors to come up with a combination of bloggers and types of postings to best complement Reuters coverage. 

This is one response to feedback that you wanted more content in some areas and, in particular, to see more comment and opinion. Limitations on what Reuters journalists can write, which are designed to maintain our record for objective reporting, mean we can analyze news but can’t offer any comment ourselves. So our related blog postings are designed to bring you an edited selection of views from bloggers that we believe will enrich our site.  


We’re planning to extend the subjects covered by our related blogs feature and to extend the number of blogs from Reuters staff. I’m eager to hear your views on both this new feature and any other ideas on the kind of blogging you’d like to see on Reuters.com.

Comments

Hello from France
I’ve commented the news on my blog, and I would like to know if Reuters plans to offer this kind of service to his clients in France.
For the moment, it’s not possible to register a non-english blog on BlogBurst. Is it going to change soon? Is Reuters going to partner with a french website?
thank you for your answers!

 

Gilles,
Thanks very much for your comment. We would like to make non-English blogs available to our users in France and other countries and we are exploring ways to do that. I hope to have more news on that front soon.

Dean,

This is great news for publishers. Any chance that the related blogs feature will expand to the Business and Investing sections and include content from financial blogs?
