Wattpad's FeedM8 brings the mobile masses to TheGoodBlogs community of bloggers

TheGoodBlogs, a global leader in blogger community, and Wattpad, the creator of FeedM8 and a global leader in advertising-supported mobile services, announce a strategic alliance between the two companies. Through the strategic alliance, FeedM8 will enable TheGoodBlogs community of bloggers to mobilize their blogs, enabling them to reach the mobile masses. FeedM8 will also utilize TheGoodBlogs recommendation technology for its users to discover new blogs.

Founded in 2006, TheGoodBlogs is a distributed community of bloggers who actively promote each other to their readers. By embedding the TheGoodBlogs widget on their site, a blogger can recommend other blogs of interest within the community to their visitors. A different and fresh set of blogs are shown each time.

"TheGoodBlogs service is all about reaching out to a broader audience," said Vernon Lun, Co-founder of TheGoodBlogs. "With FeedM8, bloggers can now further extend their reach to 3 billion mobile users effortlessly."

Launched in August 2007, FeedM8 is already helping numerous bloggers and web content publishers to mobilize and monetize their content. For bloggers, the one-step sign up process of FeedM8 Publisher Network takes just a few seconds. FeedM8 automatically creates a phone model specific version of the blog in real time for display. The transformation takes into account handset specific capabilities and dramatically reduces mobile network bandwidth required to support rich Internet traffic. This delivers optimal speed, presentation, usability and content quality across mass-market handsets and high-tier handsets with full HTML browsers. FeedM8 also includes mobile appropriate advertisements and splits advertising revenue with the bloggers. The bloggers can earn even more by becoming an affiliate.

"TheGoodBlogs is a very popular community for bloggers," said Ivan Yuen, Co-founder of Wattpad. "Partnering with TheGoodBlogs will introduce FeedM8 to thousands of bloggers and help them to mobilize their blogs."
