Greetings to the Blogosphere!

[ #33920 ]

Slowly becoming aware just how badly Perl is detached from the rest of the Internet. I've been doing searches on blogs for feedback about my "Simple Ways" tutorial, because I got very little email response. I came to realize that use.perl's journals are not searched by Technorati or most other blog search sites. We are not a part of the blogosphere. I'm fixing that for my own and I'll see what I can do about getting all of use.perl on there. Pudge says to submit this link to the relevant search sites.

So far here's the list of all the blog search sites that do not search use.perl journals discovered by going to each of them and searching for "schwern". Very scienticious.

Searches the use.perl articles but not the journals. Sign up and you can claim your individual blog. Contact them to encourage searching all the journals.
Google Blog Search
Doesn't search use.perl at all. They have a pinging service so you can request they look at your blog. I did mine.
Blog Search Engine
Does not cover use.perl. They just use IceRocket.
Does not cover use.perl. They have instructions on how to have your blog software ping them with new content to be indexed. Might be nice to add to Slashcode. Or you can add an individual blog.'s Blog Search
This picks up some individual user's blogs, seems to be able to intelligently spider through the blogosphere. It picked up mine, chromatic, pudge, rjbs, Ovid and Sean Blanton (J Random User). Doesn't have Skud's for some reason.
Crap site. Ignore.
Also crap, but does have useful links to other searches and trackers.
Seems like crap. Picks up on the odd use.perl journal.

There's probably more out there, but I'm spent. I'm not really knowledgeable about this sort of thing so there's likely lots I missed. Do you know of more?

I must now pee on my blog, Technorati style, so they know its mine.
