MSN Offering “Blog This” Button on News Stories

    August 31, 2005

Wow, it’s about time the big sites started doing this. Spotted over on the Microsoft Monitor weblog …

Early this morning, I read up on the latest news about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Of interest, interactive graphic over at MSNBC. Down in the lower right-hand corner is “Blog this,” which if clicked logs the user into MSN Spaces (assuming he or she has a space) and fills in a post with title and link. User just needs to click save. The filled-in post looks like this.

I’ve been hoping that Yahoo! News would do this for a while now.

Good job, Microsoft.
