The sharp-eyed among you will have noticed a recent up-turn in Flightglobal’s blog activity.
To date our blog portfolio looks like this:
Flightblogger: One of the world's most renowned aviation bloggers joins the Flight team.
Flight Image of the Day: Picture editor Paul Gladman offers his daily image highlight from Flight
Editor's blog: Online Editor Michael Targett highlights the site's new developments
Unusual Attitude: Kieran Daly gives his take on the turbulent world of aviation
Hyperbola: Rob Coppinger orbits the blogosphere to give you the latest space news
The Woracle: Graham Warwick gives his own forthright views on the flight industry
The Dew Line: Flight journalist Stephen Trimble offers a unique insight into the defense industry
Flight International blog: The Flight team offer their take on the latest aviation news
Airline Business Blog: Airline Business editors take a sideways look at the airline industry
The Woracle, The DEW Line, Flight International and Airline Business had previously formed the mainstay of Flight’s blog squad, but recent additions (Unusual Attitude, Hyperbola, Flight image of the day, Flightblogger and this blog) have accelerated our activity in the blogosphere.
Now, there are blogs and there are blogs (a blog in reality is just an adaptable publishing platform which can be used in a variety of different ways). Our various blogs are serving various purposes. For example, this blog is providing info on the development of the site among other things, where as the Flight Image of the Day blog is purely an image-based offering.
Then there are our news blogs, but there are even differences there. The Flight International blog is a team effort and covers a broad range of topics, while something like Rob Coppinger’s Hyperbola is a very focussed blog, exploring the granular detail of space flight. Airline Business often looks at the lighter side of the industry, as opposed to newcomer Flightblogger whose blog serves as a spotlight on new airliner development.
And let’s not forget user blogs. Over on AirSpace there is now the facility for users to start their own blogs about anything they choose to blog about. Already there’s a couple on the go, including one simply highlighting amusing aviation-related internet games.
Our ambitions are to continue to add more blogs. Ideally, in the future, there will be more spotlights covering all areas of the industry, as well as blogs delivering humour and personality.
There are even rumours of a blogging return of Flight international’s infamous Uncle Roger, so stay tuned.
