The World Blog Center launched officially on 10th March 2006 and aims to bring together the world's greatest blogs within the span of one million square feet of virtual office space represented on its homepage as a 1000px x 1000px office floor canvas.
The intent behind the website is to capture a snapshot of the best in the blogosphere in 2006, and to make it a part of Internet history. Blogs have exploded in the last two years, and now represent a fair share of the Internet's content. At present there is a very rich and diverse blog base.
The World Blog Center only has a limited amount of blog office space. This space will be occupied by the best blogs in approximately 16 different categories that cover a very wide spectrum of the blogverse (or the blogosphere).
Blog office space in the World Blog Center is expected to be full by November 2006. The Center is inviting the world's best blogs in the fields of Business, Marketing, Media, Marketing, News, Computers, Software, Health, Travel, Culture, Entertainment and other industries to occupy space in what is a highly prestigious virtual office location. There is a review process for all applicants in order to maintain quality and the Center aims to represent a broad range of industries and personal interest topics.
Tenants will benefit from the prestige associated with the virtual office space on a premium domain name, and for many blogs it will be a valuable source of traffic. Other benefits that the Center has outlined on its website include the acquisition of peerage by lesser known blogs by being associated with more popular blogs from similar industries, and also becoming a part of Internet history by being one of the 2500 or so blogs that will eventually make it into the Center.
