Darin Gott, who has a very interesting Blog named The G Spot – you should see some of his comments on user searches for his site … very funny <g> -, wrote to me a couple of days ago and asked me if there was a web ring for Blog users. I told him that there wasn’t but that he should feel free to set one up 🙂 I heard from Darin yesterday and he told me that the web ring was all ready to go (though he did say that he was still working on the home page for the ring ..) – now that is fast action … thanks Darrin 🙂 Anyway, I added the web ring information to the FAQ (along with a few other things that I’d been meaning to add to it …) but here’s the info for all of you who are too lazy to go over there :p
Ring Name: BLOG Users
Ring Home Page: http://www3.sympatico.ca/thegotts/blog_users
Join The Ring Link: http://www.ringsurf.com/netring?ring=blog_users;action=addform

While I was at it, I decided to update the list of sites that use Blog since I had a long list of sites to be added but hadn’t had the time for the past couple of weeks – Darin’s site was among those BTW … I guess I should explain the method I follow to add new sites to the list of sites which use Blog because it probably makes no sense at all to most people because I always insert new sites into the middle of the list :p The reasoning is as follows – the point I insert new sites into the list is always the same – it’s just before the non-updated/dead sites begin on the list. When I say dead, I don’t mean that the site’s not there, just that the site used Blog but hasn’t been updated in ages. Towards the top of the list, you should find sites which are more frequently updated. In time, (if I find the time …) I check on the newly added sites and depending on their frequency of updating, I either move them towards the top end of the list or the bottom end of the list. Of course, there is no scientific method to it but this hopefully explains the method to my madness :p
