| A Pitch for Blog Portal|
Times of India:
If you have a blog related to India, please
consider listing it in Blog Portal. If you are already listed, please
consider pinging it.
Here's a brief pitch on why:
Some enthusiasts have created
tools that you can install on your blog-software to automatically ping the Blog Portal.
- Blog Portal has a Google PageRank
of 7. There cannot be an easier way to get your site listed on a PR7
Blog Portal is NOT a self-service directory. Self-service directories quickly lose value because of the junk they attract. Like DMOZ, a
human carefully selects what goes in, what stays out.
- Blog Portal supports input and output from several sources and in several formats.
Output of Blog Portal is available as
RSS and now even
as ATOM (there are some bugs in it, they will be resolved soon)
If you want to start your own free blog, I recommend Blogger. If you want to start a sophesticated blog, I suggest you consider SimplyBlog software. It is free for personal use.

|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.
