The Weblog ReviewA couple of months ago, I saw a segment on Call For Help where Leo Laporte interviewed the webmaster of The Weblog Review, Brent Todd. I had never heard of the The Weblog Review, but I learned in the interview that the purpose of the site is to provide an objective review of weblogs. Individuals are encouraged to submit their site and a reviewer will post a brief review of your site, citing things they like and dislike as well as giving it a rating from 1 to 5 (5 being the best). Also in the interview, the Brent gave some tips on how to create a better weblog and some of the things to avoid. I’m always open for constructive criticism and since the intent of The Weblog Review appears to be to help you made your weblog better, I decided to submit my site.

It’s been quite awhile since I submitted my site, but yesterday it was reviewed by ODATT and I was given a 3.5 out of 5 stars. I would have preferred a 5, (who wouldn’t?), but I have to admit that the feedback was quite good. I even had to laugh at some of the comments, because they were on the money. I’ve always said that if you ask me what time it is, I’ll tell you how to build a watch. That point was not lost on ODATT. My favorite comment of his was, “… there is certainly loads of material to be found here, all well presented and written, which will keep the avid blog reader happy for hours, maybe even days.” 😀

If you agree, or disagree with ODATT’s review of my weblog, I’d appreciate it if you’d post your own rating at this link. In addition, I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions as well, so don’t be shy about posting a comment to this entry.
