Web Services for Bloggers, and a Directory…

Technorati is a nifty metablog engine, watching more than 160,000 weblogs, updated every fifteen minutes.

It’s essentially a complement to MIT’s Blogdex engine — an excellent way to find like-minded webloggers (by searching for those who linked to a given URL). And Technorati’s frequent updates, comprehensive sweep, and ranking by “freshness” or “authority” — as well as features like its “watchlist”, bookmarking and RSS — promise to outdo Blogdex for sheer narcissistic weblogging fun.

Or, a depressing confirmation that nobody is reading — which is the case for this weblog. Then again, I only launched here three days ago. And I suppose there are other things going on in this big bad world that might be distracting people. [Link via wood s lot]

    Cool, thanks for the positive review of Technorati. We’ve got some more cool features on tap in the coming weeks. Enjoy the site, and help support the site by signing up for an email or RSS watchlist!

    I found you via a watchlist that I set up on technorati itself.
