The new Technorati still has some bugs to work out, but it looks promising. I’m excited to announce that I’ve been accepted as one of their writers…people who write articles on their favorite topics either just for Technorati or to be seen there first – before it appears anywhere else. My first exclusive-to-Technorati article was published over the weekend and can be found here. As I do on this blog, I will be writing articles about business, small business and home-based business.
Don’t know what Technorati is? According to the Technorati Blog, dated October 14, the new T is a “…re-launch of a wholly new Technorati.com. Technorati was founded to help people find great blog content….” When I first discovered it about two years ago, I understood it to be a blog directory – a place to use much like an internet search engine, to find blogs to read in categories of my choosing. And so it was. Then I also discovered Alltop, which also is a terrific directory: “…The purpose of Alltop is to help you answer the question, ‘What’s happening?’ in ‘all the topics’ that interest you….” It has a cool feature where you can have a page that lists blogs and sites that you like to read. My Alltop page is here.
As I’ve said on my “About” page on this blog, I believe information is key and it is very helpful to have sites such as Technorati [the new] and Alltop and other blog directories that help you sift and sort the millions of blogs and words to find what you need. Everything new has bugs and fits and starts…so I’m hoping that blog readers and writers everywhere will join me in having patience with the New Technorati as it gets its beta version off the ground.
Speaking of having patience…George, my 5-year old Amazon parrot insists upon “helping” me this morning! He likes to “shop” on my desktop to see what he can snatch…today it ended up being some green sticky notes.
