Hey folks, I just launched a warcraft based blog aggregator. Basically it takes all the best WOW related feeds and makes into a big one. Really helpful for those of us to easily keep track of all those blogs out there and discover new ones. You can just subscribe to the master feed and instantly get every feed I track, and direct links to their entries.

http://www.warcraftbloggers.com

A couple notes:

1) I only aggregate the first few lines as a preview. I don't want to steal content or traffic, but provide a useful resource. So all traffic will be driven to the actual blog posts.
2) None will be indexed by search engines, so it wont be seen as duplicate data of your blog, which is important.
3) I think this will really be helpful and useful to the wow community. I have 90 or so blogs added thus far, and need help and suggestions of other blogs to add. Anyone that is dedicated to WOW, keeps up with their blog and has a feed can be added.

So, let me know your feedback and what questions you think people might have. Aggregators are not new to other topics, but I think they are pretty new to WOW, so I figure there will be questions and I want to make sure there is no misconception. :-)

I should note that every time I add someone's feed it adds their last 10 or so blog posts, so sometimes there will be a stream of posts from one person filling the top of the feed.

Do you think I should limit that down some? Say to the last two or one?

hey thanks. suggest any blogs or help spread the word if you can :-)

I hope to work on it some over the weekend, so don't be surprised if in the short term some odd things happen. What do you think of the design?

I'd probably take off WoW Insider just because they update every 20 minutes or so =).

RE: wow insiders, they do post a lot, but I don't see that as bad right now. As I add more blogs to the system they will not be the majority of entries any more. I think we are nearing that now. It does take 150 blogs though :-)

Sent you a comment last week (late). Are you still working through the queue, or did I get missed?

Thanks,
~Rhoe

Hi Rhoelyn,

Sorry for that, must have missed it! My email span filter doesn't think kindly of my domain name I think. I just added you!
