Blogcritics.org is an online magazine, filtered microcosm of the blogosphere, and a full service news and reviews source, covering all aspects of contemporary culture and society.
Blogcritics.org is a new kind of online magazine, an interactive community in which writers and readers from around the globe talk about stories, issues, and products. If it's happening in the world – from global political issues to obscure rock bands, from the latest best selling novel to the TV shows that aired last night – Blogcritics.org has it covered.
Bloggers publish their stories at Blogcritics.org because of the immense value and benefits that are offered. Blogcritics.org writers gain an exponentially higher level of visibility than they could ever achieve through their home blog or website alone. That increased exposure often leads to increased traffic and enhanced search rank. Further, Blogcritics.org editors work with member bloggers to improve writing skills and reach "the next level."
An increased readership and heightened reputation, however, is matched by participation in an intensely committed and passionate online community. Other benefits that Blogcritics.org members enjoy include access to a vast array of review materials, including books, CDs, DVDs, film screenings, and concert tickets.
Blogcritics.org is an official Google News and Yahoo News source, syndicates content to online editions of newspapers around the United States via the Advance family of websites, and has won numerous awards, including a Bloggie, Forbes.com's Best Media Blogs, and was recently showcased on the prestigious AlwaysOn and Technorati "Open Media 100" list.
Blogcritics.org was founded in the summer of 2002 by veteran broadcaster and music journalist Eric Olsen. Originally conceived as a device by which music fanatics could receive free CDs on the condition that they write and post reviews online, the site quickly evolved and took on a life all its own. Hundreds of bloggers flocked to Blogcritics.org, and sections including politics, film, television, culture, and books were added to support a truly grassroots phenomenon. Product reviews came to be supplemented by news, interviews, and opinion articles. Writers and readers alike found kindred spirits online who were interested in both pop culture and the world at large. In 2005, online gaming, sports, and science/technology sections were added to the mix.
