Craig Colgan reports, in the National Journal:
MSNBC.com, consistently ranked among the top news destinations on the Web, is about to invest a chunk of important virtual real estate into the blog concept. MSNBC.com has killed its discussion boards, with their 18 million posts per month, and instead plans to establish by the end of August what it will call “Weblog Central,” a portal of regularly updated lists of blogs from throughout the Web, arranged by subject. It will include links to MSNBC.com’s own blogs as well.
In other words, a mighty media organization has realized that this new form on the fringes of the Web may be about to cross over a threshold, beyond quirky trend to establishment acceptance.
Fair enough. So allow me to introduce Religion News Blog (RNB)
Only excerpts are quoted. If you want to read the full stories you must visit the news links provided. Most stories can be accessed free of charge on the day of publication. Some news sites allow for longer access, and many of the sites linked to maintain pay-per-view archives for older items.
Most of the items posted in RNB will include links to additional research resources.
Religion News Blog is a free service. However, if you figure it saves you time and energy otherwise spent in searching for these items yourself, feel free to support this effort, either through PayPal or by purchasing books, music and other items via RNB’s Amazon.com links.
Note: Though this service is currently hosted on the Apologetics Index website, Religion News Blog is a distinct, separate entity. Currently, RNB’s domain names roll over into http://www.religionnewsblog.com/. In the future, RNB may move to a different server (or location on the Gospelcom servers), so it is best if you bookmark the official RNB domain names: religionnewsblog.com or religionnewslog.com
