web two point oh?

Just a quick announcement for my fellow bloggers…

Web 2.0 is all the rage these days. It’s loosely defined, to be sure. However, one thing is certain, it includes the social networking of which we are all a part. Technorati, MyBlogLog, etc.. Well, now there’s a new widget on the scene called BlogRush.

Do you want to expand your social community and have your posts seen by others who might not otherwise find you? Then you’ll definitely want to grab this free tool.

You can see it at work in my sidebar. I think it’s pretty cool.

It seems to do a good job of determining the overall topic of your blog. And, if you’re concerned what might appear there, know that you can provide it with a list of keywords to block. (Right now, my list just includes some non-vegan foods. Please let me know if you see a title there that doesn’t belong, and I’ll keep adding to it.)

[Update: I'm hearing this is still in Beta. Considering it's not filtering out that darn Italian Cream Cake, I believe it!  

Also, I found this post, 8 Reasons to Be Wary... and Optimistic, which presents a pretty balanced assessment. As a software engineer, I'm willing to give these guys a chance to work out the kinks. I figure, it's easy enough to remove, if need be. Looking forward to hearing everyone else's experiences with it.]

    FYI: The developer, John Reese, responds to some criticisms here: http://mashable.com/2007/09/15/blogrush

    Like you I’m prepared to give any new venture a chance but my natural optimism disguises a core of deeply felt cynicism whenever an marketing ‘guru’ is promoting something supposedly to benefit me……

    Understood and no disagreement here. Indeed, one has to wonder with any of these marketing “guru”s whether they even wrote the program or just outsourced it. :)

    Thanks so much – anything that helps me keep healthly is great. Recipes would be good too.
