  1. My only gripe with Dapper/Blotter is that I have to put the javascript code onto the blog template – but that’s not that easy for me to do with webmetricsguru.com, artnewyorkcity.com or smartmobs.com as I author the first two blogs and write for the third, but don’t control the blog templates of either.

  3. This can also be used as a private Web Service – just add any blog or technorati-listed URL at the end of the main URL parameter …AND PRESTO!
    You can customize the results with more parameters.
    You can save this to Favorites or even make a Homepage
