Reaching out to the EU Blogosphere – Aggregation of posts on Blogactiv

Posted by Blogactiv Team on 30/06/08

Since its setting-up eight months ago, Blogactiv has become a central element of the EU blogosphere. A number of Blogactiv blogs are among the most discussed on the EU and the most interesting EU bloggers outsideBlogactiv are all watching what is going on on our platform and leaving comments.

Blogactiv would like to enhance this exchange with the rest of the EU blogosphere and reach out to create an even more interactive exchange with all those who blog on the EU. Over the last weeks, we have therefore created an aggregator for EU blogs, which you can find on the left-hand side bar of the Blogactiv homepage.

We are providing this aggregator as a free service for the community and as a convenient one-stop shop for all those who want to stay up-to-date on what’s going on on EU blogs. In the future, we may add additional features to it.

Most of the links are in English and French, but we are also linking to posts in lots of other EU languages, from Swedish over Estonian to Bulgarian and Spanish.

We will try to always keep the lists of blogs that we are aggregating up to date, but if you just started a blog or you have been around for a while but still can’t see your posts appearing on the EU Blogsophere aggregator, just drop us a message so we can include you.

And, last but not least, we would like to know what you think of our aggregator and what features you would like to see added to it – let us know in the comments!

    Some comments:

    1. What is the criteria for including blogs in your aggregation box?

    2. I like the fact that the selected blogs relate to the language version of Blogactiv.

    3. The box shows an RSS icon, but it isn’t clickable. Does one exist?

    Maybe the box could be more hightlighted, it is a good new feature of the Blogactiv site.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your comment.

    1. The criteria for including blogs is quality. We manually indexed each blogs, checking if they are all strictly EU-related, regularly updated and with relevant information.

    2. Thanks. Indeed, we also indexed EU blogs per language.

    3. We are going to work on this issue.

    Because of a problem of stylesheet, it is not easy to get this feature highlighted. However, we will also try work on it.

    Cheers,

    PA

    Hi Brussels Blogger!

    I am happy to see that someone noticed its absence! Actually, it generated some technical problem as it was fetching, then mixing and filtering more than 200 RSS! But it will probably come back – under another form.

    We will let you know.
