Melbourne vegan food bloggers Steph and Danni have built a vegan food blog aggregator called VeGMeL. It uses different tools to the 10 local news sites I have built but the result is fundamentally the same: a place that syndicates lots of content so audiences have a convenient place to access it. This model is perfect for where there is a niche topic with an existing audience and a pool of potential contributors. Aggregators like this are particularly good at helping relatively new bloggers get found and read by audiences. It’s great to no longer being the only person in Melbourne creating new alternative news sites!
