LANSDALE, PA. (July 11, 2011) – Nittany Lion’s Den has been added to The Reporter‘s community blogging network, and will add to Journal Register Company‘s (The Reporter’s parent company) Ben Franklin Project effort.

Nittany Lion’s Den content will now be shared alongside beat reporters from Philadelphia’s sports scene, such as Ryan Lawrence (Phillies), Bob Grotz (Eagles), Anthony J. SanFilippo (Flyers) and Dennis Deitch (Sixers) in addition to a handful of local community sports blogs serving the Lansdale area and Montgomery County. Content from the website can potentially be shared with sister newspapers of The Reporter, including the Delaware County Daily Times, The Daily Local News (West Chester) and more. Working with The Reporter, Nittany Lion’s Den will look for new ways to bring you Penn State news and commentary.
About Nittany Lion’s Den
Nittany Lion’s Den launched in June 2011 with a mixed staff of Penn State fans, students and media in a unique joint venture. The site launched on the Bloguin network in order to bring unique Penn State coverage to the network of sports sites covering college and professional sports and more.
Founded with the belief that blogs don’t have to have amateur designs, lack of functionality, inconsistent content quality, and under-performing advertising programs, Bloguin aims to give both bloggers and advertisers a best in class social media platform.
As the Internet continues to fragment into smaller niche audiences, Bloguin has recruited an elite and diverse team of existing bloggers who want to focus on producing top-notch content and not the nuisances of site maintenance, design, hosting, and advertising programs.
The response has been tremendous with over 175+ the Bloguin platform spanning an audience of over 900,000 monthly unique visitors. We’ve even had some of our writers land additional writing postions at the companies below.
