New York Times Blog “The Walk Through” Shuts Down

by |

After recently launching two new real estate pages to their site, Great Homes and The Home Finance Center, the New York Times announced yesterday that they would no longer be operating their real estate blog.

Apparently the NY Times couldn’t focus on all three areas of their site at one:

As you may have noticed, The Walk-Through has been awfully quiet lately. It had a good run, but we’ve decided to turn our focus to other parts of our real estate pages.

This withdrawl from the real estate blog space is a victory for the small real estate bloggers who continue to produce fresh content every day with no backing from a multinational media company. The big boys have fallen, and a new generation of upstarts will rise. Look out!

  1. I think there is some thing more to this then just too much to focus on. A big company like the New York Times can hire a few more writers to do the work. I think that the Real estate is falling and they feel that its not worth it any more.
