Blogged.com Connects Bloggers With Readers; Increases Traffic and Promotes Quality Content Filtered by People
A Blog Directory and Network "for the Rest of Us" Gives People an Easy Way to Discover, Explore, and Share Favorite Blogs, by Topic, Popularity, and Relevance
ALHAMBRA, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2008) - Blogged.com officially open its doors today in
public BETA inviting bloggers and readers to connect through its unique
online discovery, exploration, and sharing community.
Its goal is to help blog authors connect with their audience and to allow
readers to discover new and interesting blogs in its directory.
Blogged.com already contains a database of over 200,000 qualified, English
language blogs -- one of the largest on the Internet.
The company's staff of full-time editors maintains the integrity and value
of blogs listed in its directory, eliminating the frustration of filtering
out spam or irrelevant results associated with existing blog services.
Editors evaluate blogs based on frequency, relevance, design, and writing
"Blogged.com allows people to discover new blogs and provide feedback on
the blogs they care about. As the number of blogs increases on the
Internet, it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish and identify the
best blogs. We're excited to offer users a fast, easy way to discover high
quality content in the ever evolving blogosphere without spending a lot of
effort," said Kenneth Yeh, co-Founder of Blogged.com.
For each blog, there is a detailed overview page where people can learn
more, find related blogs, view recent posts with direct links to full posts
and also contribute their own reviews in a visually rich format.
Frequent visitors can create a profile dashboard that features additional
information about themselves, a listing of their reviews, friends,
favorites, shared blogs and comments. The profile dashboard also features a
mailbox for communicating with other visitors on Blogged.com.
Visitors can browse the directory by categories, sub-category or keywords
and sort the results by their user or editor ratings.

Entertainment & Recreation
Family & Home
Books & Literature
Religion & Spirituality
