As the blogosphere grows, there are an increasing number of citizen journalism or grassroots media companies sprouting up on the business landscape.I’ve gathered together as many as I could find. I’m sure I’ve missed more than I’ve listed, so feel free to contact me to add one. Also, let me know if you believe any of these are non-profit.
American Town Network
New West Network
PlugStar Citizen Reporters
S. D. Fridge Door
The Daily Gotham
This list does not include citizen journalism initiatives established by media companies, no matter how small the parent companies. I am not listing non-profit projects, personal or group blogs that are not for profit, sites that do not have a substantial citizen contribution element or those that do not have journalistic content.
For lists of these sites check out CyberJournalist’s Citizen Media Initiatives.
This survey of grassroots journalism sites on the Online Journalism Review site might be of some interest also.
