A different kind of aggregator

1. Many of you reading this are probably familiar with feed readers that track subscriptions to blogs or news topics. I use Google Reader to track several blogs myself. A bunch of those blogs are craft/DIY-related. Aggregators are great--once you are aware of an RSS feed you want to track in the first place. That's the catch.

2. You might also be familiar with popurls.com, which gleans content from the most popular websites. It's basically a cross-section of the hive mind that is the Internet. Also great; it keeps you current and aware of trends and popular topics. But boy, it is potentially a huge undertaking and I have shied away from it. (But not for long now the the mobile version is now fully featured, ahem cough.)

3. Behold, popurl's new sister site, epsonality.popurls.com.



It gleans content from the most popular creative sites, subdivided by topic. And every topic is relevant to modern crafters: Crafts (duh), Small Business, Entrepreneurship, Photography, Design...oh man. It''s pretty nice not being held back to the feeds of a select few crafty blogs. Also have to love the previews available on mouse roll-over. I wonder if they'll add more categories; I think breaking out sewing and knitting/crocheting from the Crafts pack might be beneficial. Then again, that's what interests me.

Happy browsing the other creative fish in the internet sea!
