I discovered the 9rules site via Creating Passionate Users. If you’re looking for a way to find the creme de la creme of weblogs, this is certainly a really good place to start. My Newsgator/Feeddemon article count just grew a bit. :)
Excerpt from the ‘About’ page:
About the 9rules Network
The 9rules Network is about building a community of high quality websites as well as a community of highly discerning readers. Content is king and looking good helps. We add sites that meet these rigorous standards and leave bribe money under our keyboards.
Many people hear the word “weblog” and go running to Google to find weblogs on their favorite topics, but weeding through the crap to find the cream is a daunting task. Fortunately there are hundreds of thousands of great websites and weblogs that provide quality content, and our goal is to connect hungry readers with passionate writers so that they can live in harmony.
The 9rules Network is about great content, and if any website/weblog/wiki produces that on a regular basis then who are we to filter them out. Passionate writers don’t need to be tied down to vernacular. Great weblog. Great website. We don’t discriminate.
It’s For Everyone Readers and writers unite
The network is here for both experienced writers and bloggers, for newer authors trying to gain a foothold, and for the millions of readers who flock to sites in our network everyday. Site authors can join the network and boost their audience, newer authors can get some help from more experienced members, and web users now have a place to find great content on the web. 9rules is for everyone.
