And that means that if you want to continue to read Charles Bremner, the Paris correspondent for The Times, then you will have to pay £1 a day or £2 a week to access the site.
In an email Charles said: "As far as I know (and I am far from being in the know), the blogs will be behind the pay wall.
"Of course that will probably change their nature a bit. I don't expect many people to pay just to read my blog, but two euros a week for access to the new website of the whole paper is not really a lot of money."
Charles' blog is a very popular spot for those who enjoy following French news as he offers up additional details to stories he wrote for the main paper, as well as articles solely for the blog.
Whether people will be willing to pay to read his work and the rest of The Times website remains to be seen, it's a brave experiment from News International and Rupert Murdoch.
