Bloglines top 1000 blogs!

Hi all…

ProBlogger noted this morning that the Bloglines beta released a new Top 1000 Blogs list… Here’s the ProBlogger article.

It’s interesting to see the sheer volume and variety of blogs and blog topics. Art and science, technology, entertainment news… There’s a huge variance.

The upshot is that Bloglines provides yet another way to see the impact and traffic for your blog. If you add your own blogs in, other folks can see your articles and feeds and subscribe. This just offers another way for your viewers/readers to hook into your feeds and get your blog/website content.

What do you think about Bloglines? The beta has some warts. I’ve noticed some visual issues with folders in your “library” on Firefox, but other than that it’s pretty easy to use and yet another good RSS aggregator.

Let me know what you think!

StumbleUpon

Hey all…

If you haven’t “stumbled” upon StumbleUpon.com and need another way to fill your days with interesting websites, this is the place to go… Check out http://www.stumbleupon.com or StumbleUpon My StumbleUpon Page

When you install their Firefox toolbar, you immediately can bounce, or “stumble,” into a series of websites in categories you choose for your profile. There’s more categories than you can shake a stick at and you always end up somewhere interesting. I did see a few duplicates, but that’s to be expected when everyone on the web is finding cool resources. There’s bound to be a few dupes.

I think I got sucked into the internet for a good couple of hours today and found a variety of topics — some funny, some thought provoking, some cool — and there were also some where I was left scratching my head or just moving on to the next one without much of a look.

So check it out and let me know what you think!
