Hmmm - famous in my own mind?

Was over at Sunny O seeing if Llew had been up to anything in the last 24 hours and found a new link on his sidebar Generation Blog - New Zealand Bloggers Aggregator (well a previously unexplored link anyway, not sure how long it has been there) and there I am... along with some interesting other people (far more interesting than me).

Not sure what to say really - doubt I'm worthy. Good site for avid blog readers.

I'm not sure about that - isn't that stealing someone's content and republishing it as their own? How do they go about it? Do they ask people first if they can include them

wino said...

didn't ask me! but I am linked to Kiwi blogs or whatever it is called so assume they probably picked it up from that...

Well I'm not and I'm there too. How odd. Hope they've read my copyright stuff, although - as luck would have it - NO ONE had ever clciked on me ;-)

or indeed 'clicked'....

wino said...

Actually it appears that no one is clicking much at all on anyone in there. It is all a bit odd.

yes - I agree...we might need to have a little private chat about this - do you still have my e addy?

llew said...

I noticed that appear too - and that I was in there. I think it's just another thing like Kiwiblogs.

In the end I wasn't worried I was there - they're just directing them through aren't they? Not taking our content as though it was theirs.

Mind you, didn't look very closely.

I wish I could visit new Zealand...

Clods said...

Seems that if you are on there you are more likely to get these comments "spam" posts?

wino said...

Yeah was wondering if you had a point Clods but looking at my stats have had a whole heap of visits from all sorts of places in the last 24 hours but none from the site in question. Also found two people hung round for over an hour! (didn't think it was that interesting but there ya go!)

Just requested removal and apparently got it - so if ya all want to read about it you'll have to read it here.

Hiya -

Found this through a search; as wino said there is no problem with being removed - it's just like a Google for blogs, and content is cached in the same way. The aim of Generation Blog is to raise the profile and awareness of NZ blogs, and it's free to use and to be added to.

Some people do find it handy, and if people are providing their feeds in RSS or Atom format, unfortunately they can be used in all kinds of ways...

But I think / hope that more people find it useful than not.

Thanks,

John.
