search the mom blogs

I came across something interesting and wanted to share it with you.

A fellow blogger, Michelle of Scribbit, created a custom search engine, powered by good 'ole Google, but searches only mom blogs. You can read more about it in her own words in this post, which I suggest you do because she explains it so much better than I could.

I was impressed with it so I asked her for the code so I could add it to my sidebar. Check it out for yourself. Pick something you would like to search. Once you've typed it in, Google will search blogs that have been specified by Michelle. She has designated over 1500 blogs, which is a small number compared to the millions of results you would normally get.

So if you're in the midst of potty training and want to know what other experienced bloggers have written about it, this search engine would be ideal. Or if you're writing your own post on, let's say, a craft idea. You could do your search and include links to other blogs/posts on the same subject. Cool, huh? I hope you'll give it a try.

I know. Isn't it great? I have it in my sidebar, too. Make sure to submit your blog URL to Michelle so that it is in her search.

MightyMom said...

so, how DO you submit your URL to her for inclusion in the little search engine that could??

i'm sorry... i should have included this info in my post.

i just asked michelle to add my blog to her momblog list. i think that's all you need to do.

Amber said...

Thanks! This might be good to add to the MTM blog.

Great idea!! I'll have to go click and search away.

I wonder how she did that? I was trying to find blogs on a certain topic the other day and could not figure it out. Guess, I'll ask some questions of her.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the mention, I'm glad you liked the little gadget, it's helped me out quite a bit the last six months.
