About BlogNetNews of Massachusetts

There is a new service out there for bloggers, and I am excited to share this great free service with those who have blogs or like to keep informed. On their main page they have a description of what this is, so I will defer to their well worded statement:

You've seen aggregators before. BlogNetNews jumps a generation ahead. We're not interested in reprinting your posts and we don't have an ideological ax to grind. We are going to use your feeds and the feeds of top bloggers from your online community to create new content and information that will organize this slice of the Internet making it work better for bloggers and their readers.
Our launch version offers these features:

The day's top news based solely on what news stories Mass bloggers are linking to -- no matter what mainstream news source they're in.
A micro search engine that will only search the Mass blogosphere.
A quick guide to the hottest blog comment sections in Mass.
A quick index of the day's most active Mass blogs.
A guide to the blog posts most link to by other Mass bloggers.
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 Mass content, not based on random voters or some editors choices, but based on the real actions of Mass 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 for more. We also think a quick grasp of what's going on in the blogosphere will help bloggers get more out of the time they spend blogging.

I hope you're interested in what we're doing. In order to keep improving the site, we want your feedback. Write directly to me at editor@blognetnews.com.
