Press Release Body: Alhambra, Calif. -- February 25, 2008 -- Blogged.com officially open its doors today in public BETA inviting bloggers and readers to connect through its unique online discovery, exploration, and sharing community.
Its goal is to help blog authors connect with their audience and to allow readers to discover new and interesting blogs in the directory. Blogged.com already contains a database of over 200,000 qualified, English language blogs - one of the largest on the Internet.

For each blog, there is a detailed overview page where people can learn more, find related blogs, view recent posts with direct links to full posts and also contribute their own reviews in a visually-rich format.
Visitors can browse by categories, sub-categories, or keywords and sort by user rating, popularity, and editor rating, in order to find the blogs that are important to them.
Frequent visitors can create a profile dashboard that features additional information about themselves, a listing of their reviews, friends, favorites, shared blogs and comments. The profile dashboard also features a mailbox for communicating with other visitors on Blogged.com.
