Favoritism

Anyone with a blog should be familiar with Technorati, the biggest blog search engine / tracker out there. They recently added a new feature which allows anyone with a Technorati account to track their favorite blogs. The added fun in that is that there’s now a new top 100 list of blogs who’ve been added the most as faves. And seeing as the bottom of the barrel are scraping a dozen faves only it should be doable to get this here thingie on the list. I know there are more people regularly reading it.
So plug me baby!

Tagging

Here‘s an interesting read about the importance of tagging. I still haven’t decided yet which route to take. Categories, technorati tags in the post, plugin for tags… there are so many choices. The plugins are nice because they make for some lovely eyecandy as well with tagclouds and ranks, but ofcourse that also means additional maintenance. Plus I’d love to find an article somewhere that shows the benefits in terms of how tagging a blog impacts search results/traffic. Seems like everyone’s just doing it for one reason or another without much in the way of hard facts to back it up.

Bits ‘n pieces

Firefox 1.5 is trickling down the mirrors, so it should hit the main page at mozilla.org any minute now. I’ve steered clear of all the betas and RCs for once so I’m looking forward to grabbing this one, hoping the bump in numbering is a sign of good things.

I’ve also signed up at Technorati which is sort of the blog grapevine. At first I went meh to see the rank for X111.com was 231236. Only later I read that they track over 22 million blogs, so hey, not bad at all. And I’ve only just begun.

For those commenting here I’ve added another plugin which enables you to receive a mail when an entry where you added a comment gets another reply. Should make it easier to track things and keep a discussion going.

Show me the money!


My blog is worth $11,855.34.
How much is your blog worth?

This is for my main blog.
You’ve GOT to be kidding me. Where can I get the check? Mwaha, yeah right.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
