AOL/HuffPost Launches Huffington Post Small Business

The AOL Huffington Post Media Group has expanded yet again this morning, this time launching Huffington Post Small Business. As you can tell by the name, the site hopes to offer readers analysis of the many issues facing small business owners. Rod Kurtz is the site’s Executive Editor.

Peter Goodman, Executive Business Editor of AOL Huffington Post Media Group, said that the new site is filling a void.

“Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy, and the key source of job growth,” explained Goodman. “Our site aims to crystallize a crucial conversation about what they need to prosper. We will spotlight what is working and amplify concerns about what is impeding the growth so sorely needed.”

Stay tuned for tomorrow when HuffPost launches HuffPost Wings, which will detail every aspect of the show “Wings.” Then next Tuesday, HuffPost is expected to launch HuffPost Kid Rock, a site dedicated to explaining how the Detroit native got people to purchase his music.

There’s more HuffPost sites coming, but that’s all we have confirmed for now.

UPDATE: Apparently this isn’t exactly something new. Jeff Bercovici of Forbes just tweeted to us that there was already a HuffPost small business site, and then Adam Clark Estes of The Atlantic Wire said that he helped launch a small business subsection for HuffPost last year. You’d think HuffPost would mention these details, but alas.

Huffpo Launches College Section Calling for Free Labor, Runs Feature About ‘Majoring in Debt’

We’re waiting for the Huffpo media jobs page where all the laid off journalists write for free (but get exposure) about how there’s no work.

Yes, HuffPost College launched and “hired” a bunch of college students to “work” on it.

HuffPo citizen journalism editor Adam Clark Estes told The Examiner:

We do have a small budget to set student journalists up with equipment and to cover costs, but they won’t be paid on a traditional story-by-story basis. As with the rest of the citizen journalists at Huffington Post, we expect that the by-line and exposure offered by our millions of readers will be the best way to give credit.

Fine fine. No one has any money to pay anyone to create content that drives viewers who make advertising viable. We get it. Just don’t do a huge feature about all the crazy debt college students face while NOT PAYING college students.
