Are you on BlogCatalog

I first noticed the BlogCatalog widget on a number of blogs and assumed that it was just another MyBlogLog clone.

You might notice the new widget that I have up on my right side bar. Now, I can see when other BlogCatalog members visit my side and I can thank them for dropping by my blog. That's what people do OK.

Joined up day before yesterday and I won't say it is better but BlogCatalog has a few extra features than the later.

It is also a blog directory. On their main page you can see the most popular tags, recently added blogs, the top neighborhoods and top discussions. The last feature is absent in MyBlogLog.

Would have liked to know more about the guys behind the site. However, unlike MyBlogLog, they don't have an 'about us' page. Also a bit concerned that they don't have a "Privacy policy". I don't mind the Google ads though.

Anyway, both are great for promoting your blog, networking or finding other interesting blogs.

Learnt that the owners of BlogCatalog are Angelica and Antony Berkman (Tony). Rose had written a great review comparing the two social networking sites.

They are now adding a Terms of service after a little fuss from me, however they have yet to add a privacy policy.
