Meg Hourihan along with Nick Denton of Gawker Media created Kinja. It began as an investigation into the navigation of web logs. It was dubbed as Kinja in October of 2003. Kinja was first launched in April of 2004. Kinja still seams to be in in beta form .

Kinja is a personal web service that allows its users to "bookmark" blogs. It provides the user with recent posts of the chosen blogs. These are known as personal "digests". They are visible in one single page. We can categorized compilations available based on such labels as media, music, liberal, conservative, and more.

A user can mke his digest available to any outside user . He can share his favorite blog posts. Utilizing a webcrawler called Kinjabot, (similar to Google's webcrawlers) Kinja creates an internal index of all available web logs as defined by Kinjabot.
