Abrams Media Network Launching Three New Sites

Abrams Media Network founder Dan Abrams told The New York TimesMedia Decoder his company will debut three more Web sites in early 2011: Mogulite, focused on famous business personalities; Mary Sue, a female-targeted technology-news blog; and an unnamed job-postings board.

The new sites will join Mediaite, Geekosystem, Styleite, and SportsGrid.

On the subject of the low starting salaries at his company’s Web sites, Abrams told Media Decoder, “I’ve been extremely economical, considering that it’s mostly my own money. It’s the fact that we’ve kept our costs so low that has allowed us to try new things. I have been paying out a lot more bonuses than I, or many of them, expected.”

On future expansion, Abrams told Media Decoder, “We will almost certainly launch three additional ones in the next year,” mentioning another women’s-targeted site and a food destination.
