Music blog community MOG.com is integrating with Rhapsody from RealNetworks, (NSDQ: RNWK) adding the equivalent of another dimension by allowing bloggers and users to listen to, search for and share music. The new service is live now goes live overnight; Katherine Boehret has details and a review at WSJ.com. Unlike, say, Hulu.com, which allows registered users to share clips and entire episodes with anyone, MOG’s Rhapsody relies on the subscription/registration model: $13 a month for full access (14-day free trial) and two free options with either 25 songs a month or unlimited 30-second plays. MOG, founded in 2005 by David Hyman, the former CEO of Gracenote, raised $1.4 million in a first round of angel funding and, according to Hyman, added $1.8 million more from angels in March for a total of $3.2 million.
