Several of Education Week‘s blogs, including Learning the Language, have received “excellent” ratings from a company called Blogged.com. I received an e-mail message from a marketing person from the company saying my blog had been given a 9.5 score out of 10 by editors who evaluated my blog according to frequency of updates, relevance of content, site design, and writing style.
According to Webware: Cool Web 2.0 Apps for Everyone, Blogged.com is a blog rating service that launched on Feb. 25. The “About Us”section of blogged.com says it has a database of more than 200,000 blogs. You can check out Blogged.com’s directory for education blogs here.
I guess I just fell for the company’s strategy for marketing itself by putting its badge of excellence on this blog entry.
