What is Live Blog?

Live Blog is a next-generation open-source blogging software created by Sourcefabric. Live Blog enables media organisations and bloggers to cover breaking events as well as events that unfold during a longer period of time. Live Blog makes it easy to embed video, images, text and audio from reporters and social media channels into your posts. You can use Live Blog with your own CMS by embedding the Live Blog code into your site’s page. 

Sourcefabric offers a hosted version of Live Blog. Our hosted version of Live Blog is a web-based application. You can read about hosted pricing for Live Blog here

Live Blog enables multiple users to collaborate within the same application to produce blog content from anywhere with internet access. Work can be divided between contributors, editors and administrators. Live Blog has an intuitive interface and can be used with our free Live Blog mobile app that makes blogging on-the-go easy.

With journalists from the BBC, the Guardian, Le Monde, Vorarlberger Nachrichten and Zeit Online all having contributed to its design, Live Blog can justly be said to have been designed by journalists for journalists. Live Blog was originally developed for GEN, the Global Editors Network, and further developed in partnership with Mozambique's @Verdade newspaper.
