Get a Link from YALB, Become a Featured Site at Blogbridge.com

I previously blogged about how your website/blog (or one you know of) could be a featured blog for BlogBridge.com. For those of you unfamiliar with what blogbridge is…it’s a program that allows you to manage all your RSS feeds that is cross platform. This ‘featured’ list is a default list for the “Linux” feed that users can select after installing.

Follow-Up: BBC Caves on iPlayer – Linux Support Added
