While checking for updates using my blo.gs sidepanel (I’ve used blogtracker and blogrolling before too, though weblogs.com seems to be less reliable than normal lately), I noticed its keen resemblence to my TiVo’s “Now Playing” list.
But I realized the weblog tools are missing an important feature when I read sippey.com this morning. He started republishing new stuff on Stating the Obvious, which he runs, but I had to read it on his site to know that.
With the advent of features like this at Technorati to tie multiple weblogs to a person, and tools like this to find similar weblogs, why can’t these tools say “you may also enjoy these 5 weblogs” whenever I check for updates? If I like them, I can keep them, or next update they’re gone. In this case, hopefully Sippey’s other site would pop up and I’d be able to add it with a click.
