Press Release #10: Online Magazine Blogcritics.org Gives Powerful Voice to Bloggers, Provides Indispensable Service to Writers and Readers Worldwide

January 03, 2006

Award-winning online magazine Blogcritics.org explodes out of the gate in 2006, providing a well-lit, grassroots, E pluribus unum stage from which over 1,200 superior bloggers launch eye-opening and propulsive news stories, opinions, and reviews to savvy readers across the planet.

Blogs have penetrated into the public consciousness and are now part of the galactic zeitgeist. Once thought of as a repository for navel gazing or howling political rant-rage, blogs are now all-pervasive and cover every angle, nook, and cranny of public interest imaginable. In fact, The RSS Blog recently predicted that the "number of blogs in the United States will exceed the number of citizens" in 2006.

Professional editing and writing mentorship guides Blogcritics.org's "sinister cabal" and allows a kaleidoscopic bazaar of delights in music, politics, books, film, TV, pop culture, sports, and gaming to market 60 published stories daily. News, opinions, analysis and CD, film, DVD, book, and concert reviews round out an experience that draws tens of thousands of daily and voracious readers.

It's win-(slam dunk)-win for the best and brightest bloggers and readers alike.

"What we're doing is giving bloggers a community and a forum and a collective and powerful voice. We guide that voice and we give it direction, but it's essentially organic," Blogcritics.org founder and publisher Eric Olsen said during a recent Executive Board meeting.

"Our readers have come to depend on us to get a read on the news, what's going on in pop culture, reviews, and a unique spin on all of the above, right from one place. I hear from people all the time who make Blogcritics.org their home page. I couldn't be more proud that we've created something good for the blogosphere, good for the Internet, good for the world. There's literally no downside!"
