There was a time when the Kottu Blogroll was really useful, with virtually every interesting blog being listed and some pretty radical ideas being discussed. Then the nutters, the stalkers and other assorted undesirables appeared, blog wars erupted and identities were exposed.
Many bloggers left Kottu, others gave up altogether leaving very little for the conscientious reader like myself. I was always more of a reader of blogs than a writer and it was that cocktail ideas that I found stimulating. The advantage with the aggregator is that one can read interesting posts from blogs that one does not normally follow.
I have discovered that there are still a few good blogs around, but the problem is in finding them. I've also lost track of a number of blogs that I used to read. We need another aggregator, but one that filters the participants, any takers for starting one?
