I am so excited because I just signed up to have my blog listed in the directory of Technorati. It's a completely free site to promote blogs. They tell you what your blog is ranked, mine is 1,136,110th, blah, blah, whatever. The neatest part, that I didn't know about, is this site shows if others post a link to your site and what they may have said.
I found out my recent post, Farewell, President George W. Bush, was used by the site Ballotvox.
Here is the direct link to see where my post was referenced. This made my day and possibly my weekend. Really neat to have my opinion posted by someone else.
