Running Blog Database

It is always funny when my Blogger life collides with my real life. Blogger 2SlowforBoston and I happen to work for the same company. He contacted me to tell me about a tool he created..

You can learn more about this database HERE. I have had thoughts about putting together a list of local Washington State Bloggers for some time, and never made it that far. With this Database I can search for Bloggers in my State. This is HUGE!! I can also use the Database to find Bloggers in the places I am racing, etc.. It is a GREAT tool!!

Mr. 2SlowforBoston asked me to check out the tool, I provided a few helpful ideas the past couple days, mind you I know NOTHING about coding a database, he was patient and took a few of my tidbits and applied them to the Database :)

I plan to have a link to this Database on my Sidebar. Many of you may already be in the Database. If you are not, make sure that your profile is visible on your Blog with a photo prior to inputting your info- this will make a photo appear and look similar to mine..

Cool Right?? Head over to the Database and check it out HERE.

  • All of you hidden Washington State Bloggers, get in there and put in your Blog so I can find you!!

  • Check it out, then come back to share your thoughts about the Database

oooooh! this is so neat! and even though I know that the coding found me on blogger, it still made me feel all warm and fuzzy to search for and find myself. LOL

Tim Wilson said...

Very cool, and it already had me listed :)

Cool, maybe I can find more southern bloggers with this!

Alanna said...

Yay, I'm in there! My only issue is that, because I'm not in the US, it's hard to find me (re: need to add provinces to the state search). Just my $0.02. Otherwise, awesome resource!

Done! I'm in Vancouver, WA. :)
