Karlonia Rated at Blogged.com

Today I received my first contact form submission, which confirmed that the system works and is sending messages to my email address. The message content is not exactly what I was looking for; instead of an article or advertising offer, I discovered that this site was reviewed and rated by a directory called Blogged.com:

I suppose that this is still a good thing overall since it will count as a directory submission and backlink, although my listing is buried pretty far down and is unlikely to receive much exposure.

Unfortnately, I could not find any kind of “eclectic” or “mixed bag” category at the directory, which would probably be a better fit for this blog’s content and might also result in a higher listing. The closest thing I could find was “Miscellaneous”, but this section contained no listings at all, so it is possible that they are still rearranging their categories and trying to decide on what the final names and qualifications will be. Therefore, I might check back with them in a few days and see if it is possible to have my site recategorized. If this is successful, I can then point a few backlinks at whatever page my listing settles on and increase the value of my own link indirectly.
