If Gerry Nicolls can do it...

...then I can too.

Opinions Canada sent me a notice yesterday advising the same.

Thank you, O.C. I feel honoured to be included.

I had a peek at the rules. They do not accept blogs that "do not generally follow the rules of punctuation and spelling, or that use chat lingo or that regularly use vulgar language. The occasional use of expletives is tolerated. Constructing every other sentence with a vulgar word is not."

That would explain certain popular, left-wing blogs being excluded (you know who I mean).

Does it start with a Canadian and end with a Cynic?

Raphael, that's one.

I'd like to see a blogging aggregate with the features which show the popularity of an article, the amount of hits, the comments registered so far, and an option to up and down rate it. That would be kind of cool. Which I guess is what Digg is.

I've never really investigated that. How does it work?

Love your avatar, BTW. Very seasonal.

Digg bugs me.

But you have a good idea, Raphael. I'm not that advanced, in terms of programming.

Thanks for the plug, Joanne. I appreciate it. It's still under construction.

And yes, I want to exclude blogs that diminish the level of discourse in the blogosphere.

My pleasure, Suzanne. I added the link to my sidebar.
