    TORONTO, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- After only 18 months in business,
 b5media Inc. has surpassed the 200-blog mark - a development that cements
 its status as one of the world's leading blog networks.
     "This is a huge accomplishment for b5, and it reflects all the hard
 work by our employees, channel editors and bloggers," said Jeremy Wright,
 b5media's CEO. "It's pretty amazing to think b5 has grown so quickly from
 five blogs in late-2005 to where we are today. While it's been a great ride
 so far, I'm really excited about the future as we aggressively ramp-up
 strategically."
     Wright, who co-founded the company, said b5media has taken a different
 strategic approach than other networks by focusing on giving readers a wide
 variety of blogs that cater to their specific interests.
     "Rather than forcing people to drink from the fire hose -- blogs that
 produce 10 to 15 posts a day -- we believe it's better and easier for
 readers if they can go to blogs to quickly get the information they want.
 It's an approach that has clearly resonated with many people given our
 network attracts more than three million unique visitors a month."
     b5media's network is divided into 13 channels, ranging from business,
 technology and sports to entertainment, celebrities and science &
 technology. The company is powered by a team of nine editors and 125
 passionate writers, who produce 150 to 200 posts a day.
     About b5media: b5media is a global new media network that features a
 wide variety of subjects ranging from entertainment and news to technology
 and sports. With content written by passionate people and more than three
 million unique visitors a month, the Toronto-based company is among the
 world's largest blogging/ new media networks.
     b5media received venture capital financing in late-2006 from JLA
 Ventures and Brightspark Venture Partners.
