BlogBurst, a new blog syndication service

More interesting news from my employer, this time regarding a project I haven’t worked on myself. BlogBurst is a new blog syndication service connecting bloggers with some major news outlets including the Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Houston Chronicle and the Austin American-Statesman.

They’re looking for blogs with a topical focus and a full-content RSS feed and in return offer major media exposure. Some of the topics in most urgent demand from the publishers go beyond what what I would have expected, notably travel and women’s issues. It sounds like there’s an opportunity there for international bloggers and the BlogHer crowd. It will be interesting to see where this goes.
