From yesterday’s newspaper:
Big plans for local bloggers
With big plans for the blogging community, the website – developed and maintained by The Star’s I.Star division – has organised the All-Malaysian Bloggers Project (AMBP).
The project, which also doubles as a contest, has attracted close to 500 Malaysian bloggers since it began accepting registrations on May 21.
“The blogging community has tremendous reach and great untapped potential,” said I.Star vice-president Davin Arul.
“The AMBP is our initiative to reach out to this increasingly important community, and to help them reach out to a wider audience as well. We’re starting the project with a contest to encourage participation. We’re hoping that once we get enough numbers on our blog directory, we can venture into other projects such as workshops, gatherings, blogathons and more contests,” he said.
