Late last week Know More Media, a network of blogs offering tech support, educated authors, and revenue share with it’s authors, unofficially announced it was folding. Blog authors have a few options. The blogs will remain online and the authors can continue to update them without revenue and without tech support and the authors have the option of purchasing the domain names. Additionally, b5 Media has offered to purchase the blogs and allow the authors to continue under the b5 Media umbrella. After viewing the comments, this is not an option that is preferable to former Know More Media bloggers.
After hearing this unfortunate news, we turned to one of Coutorture’s own and a Know More Media blogger to hear her reaction. Maria Palma (you might remember her from our Twitter BlogTalk Radio segment) authors The Runway Scoop, a respected and successful fashion industry centric blog. Maria had this to say:
I’m deeply saddened that KnowMoreMedia.com is ceasing operations and wish the best to everyone who has been involved with the network. I’ve made some great friends through the network and will continue those relationships. All businesses go through changes and this is just another one of those changes. I will continue to write at The Runway Scoop until further notice.
We wish everyone displaced by the closing of Know More Media the best of luck and continued success, should they move forward with their blogs.
