Ever find a blogger you really like and wonder “are there other blogs similar to this one?” Well, that’s what BlogCode is trying to do. Mine will be indexed shortly (I filled out a short “code” about my blog and at the end of it I learned that Matt Cutts of Google is similar to me. I already subscribe to Matt, but that does demonstrate that this is a good way to find out if there’s other bloggers who are similar to your interests).
Oh, and Matt, if you ever wanna sneak onto Microsoft’s campus (it’s just half a mile from Google’s in Mountain View) let me know. Our cafeteria isn’t as hip, but I’ll buy you lunch and show you around. Why did I say that? Well, he took photos of Ask Jeeves’ corporate offices today and wondered if he could get access to other Silicon Valley offices for his picture-taking exploits. After all, Google let me onto its campus with my camcorder a while back so turnaround is fair play!
Update: the list of blogs that are similar to mine is up now. Neat, some cool new blogs that I didn’t know about!
Oh, while we’re talking about blogs similar to mine, I see there was a dustup over on Doc Searls blog (and others) about the fact that the Z list is being kept out of the kingdom by the A list bloggers. I guess by linking to Doc’s blog I’m a gatekeeper and I’m just working to keep the Z list down. Hey, it’s a conspiracy. If we only link to each other you’ll never be able to find any new voices, right?
Here, let’s play a game. Everyone in the world say “brrreeeport” on your blog and you’ll be listed on this Technorati page automatically. Heh. There are also no pages on the Internet linked to for that term on Google, Yahoo, or MSN.
So, now you too can take down the man! Get your due! Get around the gatekeepers. Tell all those A list bloggers to screw off and die! Heheh. Or, you can let me own that term all bymyself! Heheh.
