Popular news aggregator Blendle celebrates millionth customer
Just over two years after launching, online news kiosk Blendle is celebrating its one millionth reader. Some 200 thousand of the million users even spent money on their Blendle accounts, founder Alexander Klopping said to Het Parool on Friday. "From the very beginning, the goal of Blendle was to make journalism accessible to all, without you encountering a paywall with every newspaper, on which you have to about fill in your blood type to be able to read a piece. We make it easy to find stories that really matter, and try to give quality journalism a podium", Klopping said to the newspaper. Blendle enables its users to pay per article you want to read, instead of having to pay a subscription or for an entire newspaper or magazine. Blendle is currently active in the Netherlands and Germany. The company also recently launched an United States version, though it is till in beta.
