Blog about blogs

I love having this blog where I can share my art and other stuff with anyone who cares to read my ramblings. One of the things that I especially like is that, together with its partner, Postcards, is on my own hosted site. This means I have complete control, within the contraints of the MovableType software, on its look and feel.

Unfortunately, to be able to comment of other people's blogs, it is often necessary to be a subsciber on the bloggings sites that they use. As a result, I have ended up with a number of blogs that I don't use for anything more than a single entry that points visitors to come here. It often strikes me as a bit of a waste. While visiting my empty little home over on Xanga this weekend I was stuck with an idea - always a dangerous thing!

Since I have these unloved little spaces because I want to visit my e-pals, what about using one of them to tell visitors about the blogs that I visit, instead of just having a favourites list somewhere down the side panel over there on the right. I intend to gradually work my way through my favourite reads, talking about what appeals to me on the blogs and, hopefully, encourage others to drop by for a look. How about popping over there and having a look.

OMG I totally know what you mean. Besides all my many, many, many varied blogs, I also do what you do; sign up at places like livejournal, yahoo360, deviantart, etc., JUST so that I can comment on blogs that are part of said network and require membership to comment. What I do is I created a "centralized online profile" which is just a simple website where I give a little info about myself (cuz I got tired of doing this at every site I join) and also link to all my blogs. I just recently started using CoComment.com to help me keep track of the comments I leave all over the net. You have a good idea. :) It can be crazy sometimes, w/ all our blogs and site memberships! :)
