AOL Blogs Shutting Down

TechCrunch's Michael Arrington is reporting that AOL is making across the board budget cuts on its blogging properties, but one area that seems to be immune from the cuts is the Company's Tech Network (Engadget, Switched, TUAW: The Unofficial Apple Weblog, and Download Squad), which continues to generate substantial revenue. The future of many bloggers whose sole source of income comes from writing for AOL blogs appears to be uncertain.

Arrington is also reporting that AOL is "sunsetting" the photo sharing site AOL Pictures, multimedia slideshow service Bluestring, and online storage service Xdrive. [JH]
