Blog tracking solution

5th July 2002

I’ve found a solution to my blog tracking problems. is an excellent service which tracks when weblogs are updated by waiting for pings—either directly from the blog or indirectly by co-operating with (and several other services). users can then create a list of blogs they are interested in and have the site email them whenever one of their favourites is updated. If you don’t want even more email (I certainly don’t) the site can be set up to only display your favourite blogs in last-updated order when you visit it, or you can opt for a very handy Mozilla toolbar.
