New Political Pub Launches on Eve of RNC

The online news org Contributor.com is launching a new political publication into beta mode just in time for the Republican National Convention. The news org, owned by Warecorp.com, a Minneapolis-based software company, draws from more than 100 blogs, submissions and original reporting.

They’re not limiting themselves. So it’ll move from local to international — “from Mars to your backyard”, the announcement from Editor-in-Chief and syndicated op-ed columnist Tina Dupuy reads. True to their name, the writers are citizen journos and seasoned professionals. The project, briefly known as SoapBlox.net, has been in test stages since June and is now ready for its debut.

The site is a possible venue for writers. “We’re always looking for new and interesting blogs and writers,” said Dupuy. See here.
