As a member and regular user of MyBlogLog, I’m coming in with my own list (added to the bottom).
I use MyBlogLog daily in my constant search for interesting blogs with up-to-date information. For instance, I recently found INNINGS and featured his blog INNINGS – the Norman Roberts Blogspot.Com on DWB yesterday. As a nice return, Norman featured DWB (thanks Norman!).
Further in the week I’ll feature two more I came across on MyBlogLog – Mark McGuinness and his Wishful Thinking blog and Richard Quick’s Web Design Book. Well written, both are perfect for a project I’m working.
I found both Web Design Book and Wishful Thinking by sticking to a system when using MyBlogLog. First thing, I visit my community and scroll down to the bottom to see who’s made me a contact. Then I follow each to see if they’re a fit.
I have a wide range of interests so in my community you’ll find blogs on SEO, cooking, website design, blog design, photography, art, writing, copywriting, marketing, technical issues, business tips, health, mind matters, computers and more. So if they are a fit, I add them to my community. If they are not a fit (and don’t have a blog with smut and well, you know) then I go ahead and add them as a contact because I do want to keep in contact. I then visit DWB’s Community and do the same.
I discover even more by visiting communities others have made. Well, when I have free time anyway, like during lunch or late at night. Or when I’m brain-dead and can’t face work any longer.
I’d be interested in seeing how others use MyBlogLog. Is it for community? Or research? Or raising your profile on the internet? Or just great fun?
Just to let you know, Andy has set out two logical rules for the MyBlogLog meme:
- You have to be in the community you recommend
- You have to be a subscriber of the blog

These are either past features or future features. Please join their communities if they’re a fit. And now I’m off to check out the shared communities above!
To join in on the meme, copy the list and add your links. If you are unfamiliar with getting a list of links off a site, there’s an easy way to do it. Look up in your browser to the top bar. You should see the browsers name (Firefox, Safari, etc), followed by ‘file’, ‘edit’, ‘view’, etc. Click on ‘view’ and go all the way down to ‘page source’. You’ll be presented with a page filled with code. Scroll down on the page until you see the list of links, all done up in their html. Click at the beginning of the list, scroll all the way to the bottom of the list, hold down your shift key and click again. Your selection should turn yellow, selecting the whole list. Copy and paste the code into your blog post.
