When searching for people who linked to Vancouver real estate bloggers in The Tyee (which includes myself), I mistakenly put the URL in the 'blog directory', and not searching blog posts as intended. Instead of results, I was confronted with this error: “There are blogs, and then there's whatever you just typed in. If it's a blog, we don't know about it. Maybe you made a typo.
Technorati just launched a section called "Favorites" (which we Canadians spell as "Favourites"), which lets you create a reverse-chronological list of posts from your favourite weblogs that ping the service.
According to Technorati, I'm an interesting "newcomer". No real point in linking to it, because it's obviously time-sensitive, but what the hell: if you're reading this say, in November of 2003 or later, here's a link to a page that I'm no longer listed on. Too bad that Technorati is late to the ballgame: this weblog has been interesting since December 2000, so obviously it doesn't have a metric for how awesome the weblog is regardless of the amount of inbound links.
