Google News is a computer-generated news site that aggregates headlines from news sources worldwide, groups similar stories together and displays them according to each reader’s personalised interests.
The good news is (pardon the pun) posts from your blog can be included in the index and once they appear in Google News they can get picked up by other affiliated networks and potentially go viral.
To get your site included you need to make sure your account has been verified as the owner of the site using Google WebMaster tools, once done visit the page below and request inclusion.
To check your site has been listed run a site: search on the Google News website
For more information about Google news you will find a whole host of technical guidelines etc on the the Google News support page.
