Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Blog Aggregators

Somewhere between a blog directory and a link farm there is a beast called a blog aggregator.  A blog aggregator is generally quite niche focused.  It's larger than a blog roll, smaller than a blog directory and not just a collection of links.  To get your blog listed in a blog aggregator it has to be approved by admin and a badge with link to the aggregator needs to be added to your blog.  There's usually a set criteria your blog must meet in order to be accepted into the blog aggregator.  There may or may not be a fee for membership.  Unlike a blog directory (aka blog version of a phone book), blog roll or link farm, a blog aggregator is set up in such a manner that it offers members other activities such as forums, it's own blog, contests and so much more.  So a blog aggregator in essence becomes a niche community within the blogosphere.  It can be an excellent method for blog promotion and meeting other bloggers.
