It is always strange when I find sites that I've added to the Internet. While trying to track down some old friends, I happened on my Back Flip site. I am really happy to see that Backflip is still up and running. Like Blogger, BackFlip is a large public site that lets people build their own personal link list. It is like the favorites on your web browser, but shared publicly.
What you can do with blogger is add links to all of the sites that you think have good content (or links to all of your friends). The search engines read BackFlip, and your little directory becomes your vote for the sites that you think merit note. Unfortunately, its been a while since I had visited my BackFlip folder. I had to remove about a dozen broken links.
Although I didn't find what I was looking for this morning, it was fun finding my backflip account again. I hope the site sticks around.
