Blog Stuff Durable Link to this BLOG
New Blog Words

Link Slut is the blogger who provides a link to anyone who asks (in the hope of a reciprocal link).  I introduce a new term,
Link Bitch  as the blogger who links to everyone, except you.;-- )

Here are some more:

DOS Blog -- The blog that mostly consists of text. Freebie blogs hosted on BlogSpot (that doesn't allow image hosting) are examples.

Mainframe Blog -- The blog that mostly contains content in uppercase (like those mainframes). From what I have seen, all corporate blogs end up this way with product codes, and  full of insider acronyms.

Blog Royalty -- The handful of bloggers who get all the publicity.

List Your Blog in  Blog Portal

I have made it easier for Indian bloggers to ping the Blog Portal. The Ping form now will now remember the URL, so you have one less thing to type. 

If you have a blog related to India (blogged from India, or blog about India), here's a pitch on why you should get listed in Kamat Blog Portal

  • No registration, no password, no need to provide your email, no botheration -- you won't hear from me. 
  • If you know anything about PageRank™, you know that when a highly relevant page links to you, your rank goes up. The rank for Kamat's Potpourri is pretty high, so it is a very easy way to accumulate some rankings.
  • The Blog Portal is currently the top match for the keywords India Blog or Indian Blogs on Google and elsewhere.

Classifying Blogs

When a customer wanted to use blogs in their enterprise, one feature they wanted me to add was Classification of Blogs into categories. I believe Movable Type has it. I have added that feature now to blogs at Here's a list of my blogs on blogging, and here's the category of Photo-Poem-Duet Blogs. A blog built with my software can belong to multiple categories, and a category can have blogs from different bloggers.

This is how I surf the web. Turns out creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping, personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
