Blogged.com goes down the Google News path

Blog directory Blogged.com has relaunched as a Google News style service.

The new Blogged.com, described as a “news portal for the rest of us” offers a hand-picked selection (yes, manual, I queried this to be sure) of compelling stories and organizes them by relevant categories including tech, business, entertainment, sports, politics, etc.

The Blogged.com blog directory isn’t going away, even if the front of Blogged.com looks different. The company is also offering automatic matching and recommendations of new blogs through an a strategic alliance with MatchMine.
