Andrew Sullivan, an early proponent of alternative media, will move more into the mainstream, starting in January, when he begins posting his blog, known as the Daily Dish, on Time.com.
Time managing editor Jim Kelly said, in a statement, that he hopes Sullivan's blog will be the first of a "blog neighborhood" on Time.com, offering readers opinions from all points of view.
"This deal is the first to really connect the established independent blogosphere with a big media company," Sullivan said. "I have a feeling it won't be the last."
Sullivan, who began publishing his blog in 2000 and has been a Time contributor and essayist since 2003, will maintain full control over the content of his postings, Time said yesterday in a news release.
