A new look for the Blogpower Express

I have taken advantage of improvements in the Pageflakes platform to simplify and improve the Blogpower Express. There is now a single "Big List" of Blogpower Bloggers, backed up as before by categorised pages of RSS feeds, so that members (and anyone else) can see all our blogs at a few glances.

Please be my editors by going over there and checking your own entries, both in the Big List and on the RSS feed pages. If I have made errors, you would like to be categorised differently, or you have any suggestions please email me at tom dot paine at mac dot com.

There have been a lot of changes to our membership lately, so this has taken many hours of work. I have added all the new members to my Google Reader list and - in accordance with my Blogpower Oath, will be checking them out constantly. Perhaps we should all revisit the Blogpower "credo" page and consider the scale of our commitment to each other, given how our little community has grown.

As a founder-member, however, I cannot be help but be proud of the quality of our new joiners. May I add my welcome to them? I was particularly touched by Matthew Sinclair's first post as a Blogpowerer. He has clearly "got it" and I suggest we old hands all bear in mind the expectations we have clearly raised.

I am off for a lie down now. Phew!

Well done, Tom. My "Fun stuff" entry is still my own blog though.

Great stuff, Tom.

Tom Paine said...

Thanks, chaps. Ian I have fixed that now. Just the sort of help I needed, thanks. I was going boggled-eyed cross checking between the pages. Any more corrections, people?

Tom - per your email. That would be fine if you don't want another category :)

I'm a great fan of this pageflakes set-up for BP, Tom. Thanks for all your hard work of updating and rearranging it.

I appear as usual in the Non-aligned section but I see I have another entry in the "to be categorized" list. If you wish to balance out the categories I have no problem with being in either non-aligned or general interest.

I really like the box with info that comes up when you hover over the name in the express list but some sadly seem to be lacking them, including me. I assume this is still part of the work in progress on this task.

Thanks again.

I'm sorry I don't know how to just send you a message, so this comment is the best I can do.

also, how do you get a pop-up comment window? Jim (at) Jim-Robert (dot) com
