However, this reader is looking for something else: Which sites, if any, accept e-learning courses from freelance courseware developers?

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I actually left Technorati for Google because Google appeared to be doing a better job. I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed.

Aide RSS Filtering Tool

AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and to determine what posts are generating the most interest. It provides a widget that allows you to show your top posts for month or year. You can see what it thinks are mine in the right column of the blog. I've been creating similar information manually for a while, so it's nice to have an automated support for it.

Just read an article in the Guardian The long tail of blogging is dying (Found via Donald Clark ). But recently – over the past six months – a new trend: fewer blogs with links, and fewer with any contextual comment. Some weeks, apart from the splogs, there would be hardly anything.
