The rise of King Content, Part Two: (I was pretty gruff in part one.)
Did you LOVE that listicle like headline and upcaping? Well of course you did. It is not even a coherent statement but most are not! It is the
reason hard news (not EXTRA type entertainment infotainment ‘news’) is dying or much less profitable on the internet than its previous dead tree incarnation. TV was immune from this until I saw CNN interviewing Dennis Rodman again today. ‘BREAKING NEWS Dennis Rodman is a total mess and a walking talking train wreck,’ this not NOT news, just content (and not really my taste.)
Adapt or die. I am not certain that the rise of content and the death of hard news are certain, but Beiber beating NSA spying is showing you
even the live TV crews are moving away from real actual news into King Content in a BiG WaY.
Is there any good news? Well, yea, blogger who have wanted to get paid working and making and breaking news even Agg’ing news can get paid. There just needs to be some sugar and brain candy with raw broccoli and cauliflower hard news and let procedural news go. Process stories that use to be the bread and of media companies cannot compete online, period. Business and foreign affairs attract nerdy niches and even these bastions have grasped the concept of King Content better than most (The Economist for one).
Beiber, Bourdain, cats, dogs, memes, Rodman, and the speed of twitter have destroyed process journalism and the model every 50+ Editor or Managing Editor (even those that are good humored, worth there salt and pension.) Admit it and move forward.
Let me know what you think.

The Rise of King Content Part One
This was a recent response I had pot on a private message in regards to the Washington Post‘s renewed interest in online blogging and monetizing of content online and efforts I have seen to date. Feel free to comment of share.
I am very skeptical of dead tree, dead enders that need to take their fat union pensions and go, still really get how making money online works (Even with Bezos on top now) from blogging. They say they do, but monetization is still a problem for HuffPo or hyperlocal Patch and Examiner.com …. Why are you not?
This thread seemed an appropriate spot for this note. We are really helping conservative bloggers get themselves paid and maintain control of their own voice and websites, but we do offer tons of services and tools that only larger players get access to share and members help member gain strong linkbacks and etc fairly quickly even if it is a new site.
Proud to tell you....

If you don’t believe me check out our Liberty Alliance Network quantcast rankings and stats.
Try that my former employers (or check your current one) who even ditched their well respected local angle (but web local content is still have a tough go at monetizing) to double down on politics and writing talent and a low circ “Influencer Rag.”(The house ad ridden low circ mag to influencers is not the earner it should be and is lacking the ads from those K ST players that fill the others who publish in the space.)
Look if you are interested… Or just testing the waters…
Here is our membership application.

We also provide a number of services ala carte via a newly launched venture if full partnership is not needed nor desired (but ad networks, back office, redesign or is desired to name a few services.)
