Favorite Blog Tools

I am still very new to the blogging world, but I enjoy learning about web sites that help you with your blogs. I decided to post some that I've used (they're all free) - and if you have any other sites that help you, leave a comment! (Sorry for two posts in one day, I go in spurts)
  • http://www.statcounter.com - statistical counter that tracks your blog's activity
  • http://www.blogarithm.com - an easy way to track when someone's blog has been updated. I get a daily email that lists which of the blogs on my list have new content, and this way I don't have to randomly click on the links wondering if the blog has been updated.
  • http://matiekay.blogspot.com - free blog templates - I didn't use her templates for this one, but am working on my pinkfrogpress blog and plan on using one of her cute options!
  • http://www.vimeo.com - nice alternative to youtube for posting video online
  • http://www.slide.com - I haven't personally done any slide shows with this site yet, but I love the ones other people have made!

I am going to check out blogarithim. That sounds neat. I also love statcounter, although I don't really check it enough to make it worth it. Love a good blog helper.

thanks for those sites! I have been dying to know how to be notified when people update their blogs.
