A screen shot of the Dance Bloggers website.
Love what you read and see here on The Winger and curious about what else exists in the dance blogosphere? I felt that way after I started blogging last year. As I started finding more blogs about dance, I wanted an easy way to follow them, discover new dance blogs, and connect with other dance bloggers. I brought these issues to my partner Tal, and out of our conversations, a new site was born: www.DanceBloggers.com
Dance Bloggers is an aggregator for dance blogs, meaning it collects teasers of posts from participating dance blogs (including The Winger, my blog Dance In Israel, and fellow Winger Taylor Gordon’s blog Off Center). If you click on an excerpt, it will redirect you to the original blog so that you can read the whole post, leave comments, and explore the rest of that blog’s content. Right now the site has over 47 participating blogs, and it’s still growing!
The screen shot above highlights a few ways to make the most out of Dance Bloggers:
-You can subscribe to receive a daily e-mail with teasers from participating blogs’ posts.
-You can become a friend of Dance Bloggers, “friend” other people, and write on the wall - just like on Facebook.
-If you have a dance blog of your own, you can also add it to the site’s directory.
Also, we just added a Google Custom Search so that you can search all of the participating blogs for specific content. Want to see who else is writing about that performance, company, or choreographer? It’s now all at your fingertips. Enjoy!
