A bit of housekeeping, if you will. If you scroll down the page, you’ll see a new widget on the bottom of the sidebar. It’s from Blogged.com, which has the catch phrase “find better blogs.” From the About Us page, Blogged.com says:

From the FAQ page
On what do you base these ratings?
Editor reviews are based on the following criteria: Frequency of Updates, Relevance of Content, Site Design, and Writing Style. Blogs are compared to other blogs within the same category. Blogs that have not been reviewed by an editor will receive a “first impression score” by our system, which evaluates similar criteria. Ratings are not meant to endorse, promote or advertise a blog. They are an unbiased critique by editors. Currently, we may only provide editorial reviews for English language blogs.
Who are these editors?
Our editors have a strong domain knowledge in various subjects and review blogs within their area of expertise. Editors then evaluate the blog and rank it against its peers.
