    how to get news for a newsblog, i contacted some news agencies, they only work with registered company's with vat number.
    Is there any news agency (source) for free for startup. Or any other method to run a newsblog?

    As someone who has already worked in the news industry, I think you don't need to tie up with some fancy news sources for the news. If you are a startup, you can use Google Alerts to be updated and write the updates you get about the topics you are interested about.
    Also, get connected with people from different parts of the world and stay in touch with them regularly. Ask them updates about their community. This way you can get some news too.
    Also, you can write news already published by some Newspaper or agency. News blogging is not always about who publishes first, but who presents the best.
    Good luck with your project.

    That is a very big problem. But, you can try using relevant stock photos in the beginning. Once, your blog becomes noticed you might wanna try again for the license.
