E Newss displays blog updates from Globally Blogers as headlines with short descriptions as and when they are posted. On the main page, we just display all the Categories and Recent post. We do better job in displaying the blog headlines with descriptions . This section would be incomplete without talking about search facility. We allow users to search blogs from our database. Users can search using single words or pairs of words. The search results are displayed with the newest blog containing that search term first. More on this in another section. Hold on…..
We search for quality blogs and add it to our database for inclusion. We also allow users to submit their own blogs or the blogs they are fond of to our system. Users can submit a blog. We will then review the blog and then approve/reject the blog. At this time we don't send approval/reject notifications. We only intimate users on submissions.
We reject blogs for the following reasons
1) Your blog content is not one of the categories we support
2) Your blog RSS feed version is older (0.91 and earlier)
3) Your blog features adult material .
4) Your blog feed url is invalid.
5) Your blog does not contain original content of yours or your members.
6) Your blog is already listed in one category.

What do we believe in has more to do in what we implemented so far and going to implement in future. We belive that there is no comparison between Main media organizations and blogers. There are several things that put them apart by several miles. Few differences as we understand and the list will be updated frequesntly….
Main media: Main media organizations generate official content on events as and when they happen. Most of their content generated today is of no value tomorrow. They have employees who put their opinions and editorials on several events. They are alleged to be personally biased, politically biased and sometimes under pressure from government of the day. They are even alleged to shape up the opinion of the people by giving different spins on the events. They have responsibility to report the events accurately and can't go wrong in their content.
Bloggers: Bloggers react to several events and generate content with their own opinion and analysis. Bloggers do not report current events but react to such events reported by News papers and TV channels. Bloggers can go wrong in their analysis and do not report to anybody but to themseleves. This is perfectly ok and should not cause any alarm to anybody because blogging is free form of writing. Often they have found to be more reliable and responsible in their opinions. Bloggers write on events as they understand it. When a blogger writes about anything, people need not read it the same day.
Before people had few differing opinions on current events from media outlets. Today people are exposed to too many opiniuons from blogosphere. People generally read News papers and watch TV to get an official version of the events. Now people read blogs to get a pulse of what people are thinking about the same events reported by media outlets.
Because blogosphere is spinning and expanding, we decided to aggregate several blogs and provide them in different sections to the user. Because blogs can be read anytime, we are concentrating heavily on improving search facility, so that users can enter a search term and read blogger's opinion.
