gigaomlogo.pngGigaOm, a popular Silicon Valley technology blog network, has raised another round of funding from True Ventures, with angel investors participating.

Founder Om Malik says the money will be used to build out the editorial operation as well as hosting more events. For example, GigaOm blog NewTeeVee, which covers the online video market, will do a repeat next year of the industry conference it hosted yesterday.

The angel investors include Rakesh Mathur, Venky Harinarayan and Anand Rajaraman, who have experience developing contextual content discovery software. GigaOm is looking to incorporate that type of technology, Malik writes, saying he is saving the details for later.

Besides the eponymously-named flagship blog GigaOm and NewTeeVee, the network also includes WebWorkerDaily, FoundRead and Earth2Tech.

There were some reports that GigaOm raised $1 million in this round, but Malik says that it was more than that. The company previously raised several hundred thousand dollars.
