Making money and going local

Just a quick note flagging a new place for ideas on how to make money with journalism:
Journalism Enterprise, a spinoff of the Online Journalism Blog from the UK, has launched.
On its About page, it says it’s a shared blog that “reviews websites that are attempting to make money from journalism in the new media age. That may be a mainstream organisation launching a new media spin-off, an internet startup looking to make millions, a non-profit news venture, or an entrepreneur setting up a solo project. In short, if they’re trying to make money from journalism – or launching a journalism project – we’ll cover it.”
They do nonprofits too, and are seeking helpers. See details at the Online Journalism Blog from the UK.

So while I’m dumping links, check out a post by Mark Glaser at MediaShift updating local online news efforts. One of the most intriguing sites comes from the comments: RVA News, an aggregator of local blogs in the Richmond area.

One more order of business: The Center for Citizen Media has a comprehensive survey of online advertising tools, by Ryan McGrady. It almost serves as a how-to document.
