Communal News (CN) is a fast growing and evolving news, market research and blog website and we’re on a journey. We are an open platform for writers and news, asking that all the articles we publish to be fact based. We have just under 800 contributors publishing about 15 articles a day, so we truly have a robustly growing communal service. CN has a vastly expanding audience approaching close to 1 million visitors a year– yet we’ve only just celebrated our one year anniversary as a digital media firm. We get a lot of positive feedback on our service. For example, this week a contributing writer expressed these settlements to us:
Communal News has made it easy and painless to publish news. The cost is only a little of your time. It takes just a few minutes to set up your contributor account and then you can published at will! We encourage you to write a real, detailed biography, because often after a couple of articles, the biography is published on Google News too! So when we say “set up your bio as if your mother might read it,” well, your mother really might read it.
Matt Drudge gave a speech before the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in 1998. He was already deemed an internet leader in both news and aggregated news distribution. His Drudge Report challenged the ethos of the newspaper society, which was just the beginning of dynamic revolutionary change in the news world order. The Drudge Report made friends, added enemies, created new futures and helped forced everyone in the industry to change many times over in order just to stay relevant.
Welcome to our very fast growing open platform of news and general articles called Communal News. We are not sure what part of our business is growing faster: our readership; the website referrals; or new contributors. Either way we’re seeing fast enterprise-wide growth of our free services.
You might ask why we take four more steps than your usual contribution services.
