Our editors & readers talk
Bringing the blogs to Reuters.com users
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.
Dean Wright is managing editor for consumer services at Reuters
