I was just tipped of by Yaro to the apparently brand new http://www.australianblogs.com.au which is being pitched as a del.icio.us specifically for Australian blogs. I guess it's an interesting idea, but a quick look tells me it is very definitely still in beta. It's not at all feature rich and there are some obvious problems, like:
- Some blog titles don't seem to be un-escaped properly.
- Unspecified (and unenforced) maximum input length on tags (so my last tag, Brisbane, ended up being 'bri').
- Try clicking on the title (which you would assume to be a link to home) when you're on the add link page - not a good result.
And there's no searching? Sure tags are great for accessing stuff (hell, I love tags) but really I want to search as well, and I wouldn't mind an easy way to specify more than one tag.
In short, I like the idea. I'd love to be able to easily find other Australian blogs on subjects I'm interested in, but it needs a fair amount of polish yet to interest me much further.
