Sailing Blog Aggregator

Hello!

So I have too many sailing blog bookmarks. It's starting to get a little overwhelming. I often remember a blog post that interested me and I want to check in to see any updates...but once I looked at my list of bookmarks I forget which freakin blog it was on.

My thought was to build an aggregator. It would be a single page website that would list popular sailing blogs and provide a link to a few of their most recent (or most popular) posts.

I built a news agg for a client once and it worked like a charm and ended up being my number one stop for each days happenings.

Since a ton of SN'ers have sailing blogs, I thought I would ask.. Is it something you guys might use? And would it be something you would like your own blog listed on?

Nice idea - I'm in! My blog is at: Life Afloat - it's been in hiatus for the winter, because, well, I wasn't sailing, but will pick up again soon.

Cool. I'll start working on it. Just have to come up with a good domain name.. That's always the hardest part.

There are a few "Web Rings" where the various sites are listed for a particular subject matter.

Me too, blog link below. If you need help I can assist in making a client side app that will pull in your aggregated feed maybe? I've made an aggregator a while back, was a pain..

Great idea though, I would definitely use it.

It's a great idea, and has been done before.
