Welcome to the Neighbloghood

I was doing the usual obsessive compulsive review of my referrals when I came across fredshouse.net. Gene and I go waaay back, and I’m happy to welcome him to the blogroll (maybe this will get him off the snide at Technorati).

In other blogroll news, the BallBlog is joining the blog gang at FanBlogs. I think that we’re going to see more blogging confederations as individuals find themselves unable to write as frequently as they’d like.

Maybe it’s a function of the tools, but I’m surprised that I don’t see more confederations formed by a central blog linking to contributor blogs. It’s hard for an individual to maintain critical mass over multiple categories. But a group can easily maintain an on-topic critical mass while letting the individuals maintain a more eclectic style at home.
