Publisher Tim Shore (“previously profiled on One Degree”:http://www.onedegree.ca/2005/08/22/5-questions-for-tim-shore-publisher-blogto) is looking to build on the success of blogTO. Today sees the official launch of “Freshdaily Inc.”:http://freshdaily.ca – “Canada’s first national blog network”. While “Daily Pixel”:http://www.dailypixel.com/ and a few others might have trouble with that positioning, I think that Tim’s strategy of building a city-focussed blog network is a good one.
The network is launching with “Beyond Robson”:http://beyondrobson.com, “Midnight Poutine”:http://midnightpoutine.ca, “blogTO”:http://blogto.com and “Sauga”:http://sauga.ca, covering respectively, Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and — Mississauga?
Each blog reports on local culture and happenings including coverage of music, film, the arts, fashion, food and urban issues. Not sure what Sauga will be covering (sorry I couldn’t resist).
