AOL starting to “get” blogs, offers AOL News: Blog Zone

I just discovered that AOL News has a section devoted to blogs called Blog Zone. Smells a lot like MSN‘s Slate Magazine but done on a much smaller scale.

What’s somewhat disappointing is that AOL News: Blog Zone offers no RSS feed! How do you create a product in 2005 about blogging and blogs and not offer an RSS feed? I won’t go so far as to hold Robert Scoble‘s position about firing someone for not having an RSS feed, but it’s pretty embarassing.

Still, it’s a sign of forward progress and hopefully this is just a shallow view of many more improvements that AOL will bring to its free web offering in the months and years to come. Stay tuned …
