Picket Fence Blogs

Several days ago I saw a button on Designed by Dee's blog. It leads to a site called Picket Fence Blogs, which I had not heard of before. It's meant to help people find blogs they might like.

You can register your blog there. Then you put their button on your blog. Every time someone clicks on the button on your blog, it takes them to Picket Fence Blogs and counts as a vote for your blog. Blogs with the most votes are on the front page. They also feature blogs that would not otherwise be on the front page.

I thought I would give it a try. Here is my button:



One good thing about registering my blog is that I was required to think of a short description. This was a really good exercise for me; I needed to describe my purpose succinctly: “Engineer by day, beadweaver by night (mostly), I like to look for answers to questions. How do things work? What inspires you? What do you wonder about? Explore the journey to creativity.”

Do any of you have experience with Picket Fence Blogs? What do you think about it?
