BlogNetNews Launches Auto Edition for Bloggers


If you've ever dreamed of a site that brings together in one place all of the latest news, comment and analysis from across the auto blogs, there is something new on the Internet today that you need to know about, the BlogNetBiz auto edition. You can see BlogNetBiz's political news sites at http://www.blognetnews.com.

BlogNetBiz auto edition pulls together in one place feeds from across the auto blogosphere "to create new content and information that will organize your slice of the Internet to make it work better for your readers."

Take a few minutes to check out the beta site and you will quickly notice some of the top features of a site that I think is going to grow like crazy in coming months. There is an auto news aggregator, an auto blogs search engine, an index of the most actively linked-to auto blogs, hot auto blogs comments and an index of the most widely read auto blogs. And that's just the beta version!

Here's how BlogNetBiz's Dave Mastio explains it:

"In one place, in one minute, you'll get an update on what's going on across the blogosphere. And your readers will be able to find the best car-related content - not based on random voters or some editor's choices - but based on the real actions of auto bloggers and their readers.

"Our theory is simple: We think our tools will help new blog readers find the best content fast. A good experience means they'll come back - to you and to us. We also think a quick grasp of what's going on in the blogosphere will help you get more out of the time you spend blogging."

Dave cautions the site is new and the programming is still in the late development phase - kind of like the white pre-production vehicles manufacturers use to get the last bugs out of an assembly line before going to full production. Check it out and let Dave know what you think at editor@blognetnews.com.

By the way, I am not an investor in BlogNetBiz, they aren't paying me to say this stuff and I don't receive "a cut" on the profit they make, which I hope is big. I do know Dave from his years as a USA Today columnist and I recognize a great product when I see it. Like I said, I think this is going to be growing big-time.
