Just yesterday I was speaking with a friend who is in telecommunications about how I thought that one of the areas bloggers would explore would be syndicating their content to cell phones and today I see that Gawker Media have just announced that very service for two of their blogs, Gawker and Defamer. They write:
‘Gawker and Defamer proudly present the next step in content delivery evolution: Gawker and Defamer daily text alerts. Subscribe today for a daily injection of pure, unfiltered gossip, sent directly to your mobile phones and free of the traditional time-wasting trappings like pictures and full sentences. When your marriage proposal is interrupted by a poorly timed anecdote about Kiefer Sutherland acting drunk, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them!
The cost of the subscription is $4.99 per month and for that price subscribers get 15-20 alerts per month.
This was always going to happen and I suspect will be something that more blog networks will position themselves for in the year ahead.
