Technorati and the Associated Press have started a service to connect bloggers to more than 440 AP member newspapers nationwide.
The Technorati blog announced this tie up
“Today, as a first step, Technorati is now connecting bloggers to the more than 440 AP member web sites in the U.S. that take the AP’s Hosted Custom News product, taken by local papers such as the Buffalo News or the Sun Journal. The new service will bring blogger commentary about AP news stories to communities large and small throughout the USA, giving bloggers a voice in trusted local papers throughout the nation. For many news readers, this will be their first exposure to the blogosphere with national, international, business and sports news presented along side links to blogger commentary and perspective.”
Technorati is an excellent tool that indexes everything that you type on your blog. Just ping technorati, and it is there for the world to read, sortable by tags, posts, favourites and searchable terms and blogs. Now what you blog about may get linked to a far corner of the world in a Associated Press New Network member newspaper….
