Upvote.Blog is an effort to combat the blog discovery problem.
Every now and again I will read a post on social meda opining that blogs are dead, and that they wish they were not dead because social media makes you want to poke your eyes with forks. Well, they are very definitely not dead, but they can be difficult to find. I follow hundreds of fantastic blogs, written by people all over the world and published on their own websites. Most don't write to a huge audience - they do it because they love it and they value having their own space on the internet. I'd like to help people find them.
