Recently there’s been a bit of buzz about a widget driven service called MyBlogLog. The basic free service runs as a tools that shows natural connections, (ie no forced clicking sign up procedure per blog), between communities that exist by the frequency of visits to a blog site. (Although you can actually click to sign up too).
The social network of similar blogs that forms and the linking to like-minded writers and readers has a simple attraction in the competitive quest for readership in relevant circles. To keep it interesting the widget features avatars of visitors and offers a realtime snapshot of your site’s visitors.
When I get settled down into Castlegar I’ll see what I can do to set it up here. Let me know if you’ve got it on your blog too and we’ll link.
