LANSDALE, PA. (August 16, 2011) - Nittany Lion's Den is proud to announce a new media partnership with The Mercury, serving Pottstown, Pennsylvania and the surrounding area. This is the latest effort in adding to Journal Register Company's (parent company for The Mercury) Ben Franklin Project effort. The site has previously been added to community blogging networks with Montgomery News, The Reporter and Daily Local News.
The Journal Register Company’s Ben Franklin Project is an opportunity to re-imagine the news-gathering process with the focus on Digital First and Print Last. Using only free tools found on the Internet, the project will – from assigning to editing- create, publish and distribute news content on both the web and in print. Read more about it here.
Nittany Lion's Den content will now be shared alongside other community blogs in The Mercury's Town Square section.
About Nittany Lion's Den
Nittany Lion's Den launched in June 2011 with a mixed staff of Penn State fans, students and media in a unique joint venture. The site launched on the Bloguin network in order to bring unique Penn State coverage to the network of sports sites covering college and professional sports and more.
Founded with the belief that blogs don’t have to have amateur designs, lack of functionality, inconsistent content quality, and under-performing advertising programs, Bloguin aims to give both bloggers and advertisers a best in class social media platform.
As the Internet continues to fragment into smaller niche audiences, Bloguin has recruited an elite and diverse team of existing bloggers who want to focus on producing top-notch content and not the nuisances of site maintenance, design, hosting, and advertising programs.
The response has been tremendous with over 175+ the Bloguin platform spanning an audience of over 900,000 monthly unique visitors. We've even had some of our writers land additional writing positions at the companies below.
