This is kind of trivial, but it may benefit you so I decided to go ahead and write a post about it. I've been using Technorati for more than a year now because it lets me know when someone links to my site. This way I can then either link to their site, comment on a post they've written, etc. It's a very helpful tool for us bloggers. A few months ago, many of you know that I switched the domain name of this site from lanechaplin.blogspot.com to www.lanechaplin.com . With this change, Technorati basically reset so all of the sites that were linking to here before are not shown now and are basically lost if someone goes to the widget halfway down this page now to see who's linking here. What I'm asking is that if you've linked here in the past, that you check the url that's associated with your link to see if it's lanechaplin.blogspot.com or www.lanechaplin.com. If it's the blogspot address, change it to the www.lanechaplin.com address (don't forget the www. It won't work if you leave them out) and it will fix itself. The way this may benefit you is there are people who go to the Technorati link or who come from it. There are people who check that to see who's linking here, and they then visit those sites accordingly. This may help send more traffic to your site if enough people see links to their favorite sites consistently. Anyway, I thought I would share because the domain name change really did mess up the way I see who's linking here and who isn't, and I like to keep up with that stuff because usually the people who link here have some great things to say.
If you're not signed up for Technorati and own a blog, you can do so at the link below:
