BBC Blogging

This looks like a really old post (I mean, it's from 2006 for goodness sake). Stay for the retro vibes but be aware any information in this post is likely way out of date.

The BBC has launched a new news blog called The Editors. After being initially disappointed that it wasn't an editorial viewpoint on the news (though that is dealt with elsewhere), I was pleasantly surprised. The Editors comes across as an in-depth Points of View, giving a personable face to a large corporation and covering the reasons behind some of the decisions the BBC makes which impact on their customers.

Informing customers is a great reason for a company publishing a blog, especially one as large and as public as the BBC. They've also ensured that they have gathered staff from the web, TV and radio, giving a wide base of topics, each with their own RSS feed.
