Sponsored Links

In news publishing, newsmastering is the content production process, first evangelized by Robin Good in 2004, that involves collecting, filtering and selecting topic-specific news stories, resources, tools from all of the relevant content sources out there while delivering the resulting highly focused news channels, the so-called newsradars, across multiple media such as the Web, RSS feeds, or email-based newsletters.

When newsmastering works, you can save yourself a great deal of time otherwise spent browsing tens of web sites, or RSS feeds lists, on your specific topic of interest.

The newsmaster is a news publisher who acts as a news DJ, picking, selecting and offering the very best and most relevant content items on the selected theme-topic.

In this guide I have personally brought together for you the full selection of Robin's best articles on newsmastering to help you make greater sense of what becoming a news DJ and creating a newsradar is all about.

This is the high-quality, non-automated, news gathering and republishing approach which could change completely the way you keep yourself updated while generating a publishable stream of highly focused news. Something that could prove to be very valuable for those many passionately interested in your topics of interest.

  2. From RSS Reader To Direct Online Publisher: Newsmastering Away With Blogbridge


    Making use of a good RSS feed reader is essential to the daily routine of most bloggers. Feeds give you a way to quickly seek out the latest hot news for your niche audience from across the web. Wouldn't it be nice, though, to be able to read your feeds and publish your blog posts from a single application?

Pipes is a highly disruptive visual programming environment that puts in the hands of many people the ability to create web mashups and web-based applications that combine data from different sources with much greater ease and effectiveness.
