Blog directories

A while back I posted about looking for a blog directory and not finding a good one. This caused me to think about creating one myself. I wrote a directory web app in my book, so I know basically how to do it. But I decided I wanted to see how others did it. I went looking at the Open Directory. While there I decided to look at the blog section of the directory. I then looked at blog directories.

There I found a couple of decent directories. One is Blogarama, which didn’t have Reactute in it, so I added it. I also decided to replace the Blog Hot or Not rating link on the side bar with Blogarama’s. So you can go rate Reactuate. One thing I didn’t like about it was you can only pick one category. I ended up putting it in Personal.

I also started the process of becoming an editor in Open Directory for weblog directories because it contains a bunch of bad links. But they want you to suggest three new links. If I know three other sites I wouldn’t be looking at their list. I think though they just want to see how well you can rate appropriate sites and make descriptions. So I may fill it out using ones already in the list.
