I just came across the Awesome Blog Club on Lobsters. It’s basically a directory of personal blogs that are arranged by tags. I really like the I’m Feeling Lucky button that takes you to a random blog from their directory.
However, what I don’t like is that Git is a huge barrier for entry here. In order to add your blog to the site, you need to fork the repo, carry out a pull request, then email the maintainer. This isn’t a huge problem for me now that I know how to use Git, but for anyone who isn’t a software developer (which is the vast majority of blog owners) this is a non-starter.
It’s a real shame.
I take back what I said. Being able to simply email the maintainer to get your blog submitted removes the Git barrier to entry completely.
Thanks for the correction, WizzWizz4!
