The Telegraph’s readers blogs seem to have been a success so far – just eight weeks after the launch of MyTelegraph, over 4,500 have started up their own blogs on the site.

MyTelegraph

MyTelegraph offers users the chance to create and personlise their own blogs, and so far bloggers on the site have written thousands of posts, with a total of 50,000 comments left on the site.

Shane Richmond, the Telegraph’s Communities Editor, believes that, though sign ups have slowed since the first few days, he expects that changes to the registration process will make it easier for people to sign for blogs and leave comments.

In addition to the personalised blogs, the Telegraph also recently launched MyNews, an RSS reader.
