Alltop – All the Cool Kids (and me!!!)

July 25, 2008

I’ve been aware of Alltop for awhile now.  I use find new blogs, and sometimes to aggregate feeds.  For those not aware, here’s their gig:

We help you explore your passions by collecting stories from “all the top” sites on the web. We’ve grouped these collections — “aggregations” — into individual Alltop sites based on topics such as environment, photography, science, Muslim, celebrity gossip, military, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, and Macintosh. At each Alltop site, we display the headlines of the latest stories from dozens of sites and blogs.

You can think of an Alltop site as a “digital magazine rack” of the Internet. To be clear, Alltop sites are starting points—they are not destinations per se. The bottom line is that we are trying to enhance your online reading by both displaying stories from the sites that you’re already visiting and helping you discover sites that you didn’t know existed. In other words, our goal is the “cessation of Internet stagnation” by providing “aggregation without aggravation.”

Several folks told me I should be a part of this.  Not that I wasn’t flattered, but “Confessions of an IT Girl” kinda defies categorization.  I have colleagues in the “Publishing” category, friends in “Moms” and people I respect in “Marketing”.  I talk about all those things, but I am not ONE of those things.

I can’t remember who at BlogHer told me, “Well, just put yourself in ‘Women.'”  Duh.  So I submitted, and as you can tell from the happy badge in the right nav, I’m now part of it.  So visit women.alltop.com and you’ll find “Confessions.”  Which makes me quite happy.

So give it a try.  You never know what you might find!
