The Web needs more Journalists Entrepreneurs – Part 2

Owen Thomas, who was earlier at Business 2.0 magazine, has joined as Editor of snarky Silicon Valley blog, Valleywag, which is part of Nick Denton (another former Journalist who rose to become a ‘Blog Moghul’). Owen Thomas, a snarky journalist himself, famous for raising questions will lead a team including talented writer Nick Douglas, who has his own take on snarkiness.

Enough of snakiness, what I wanted to say about this latest move is the phenomenon of a ‘single talented journalist’ (Scott Carp’s phrase) can run a focused blog aided by a team of talented, often freelancing journalists, covering the stories they like, in the way they like.

You will notice that Valleywag, famed for pointing fingers at all things the Valley likes in abundance, Web 2.0 for example, is basically now run by snarky, forever questioning, ‘digging the dirt’ journalists.

Focus eventually brings you its won rewards – most importantly, a brand.

Once you have an online brand fully set up in its niche, you can look at various options other than advertising income – special PDF/Print on demand versions, On-demand & appropriately formatted compilations, paid video tutorials, and maybe in the end, horrors, a print version itself.

Isn’t this what any ambitious journalist wants?
