New RSS aggregation service Bloggator has claimed over 20,000 people signups in its first 2 weeks of operation.
The service provides a directory style listing of feeds sorted by topic which users can use to find new feeds.
Jeffrey Smith, Bloggator’s founder, pitches the service at the newbie market: “Bloggator is aimed at people who don’t know how to – or don’t want to take the time to – find blogs and figure out how the blogosphere works”
Smith also uses the old “every one else sucks” line is his attempt to promote the service with the following quote:
“I tried every blog directory I could find before building this, and finding a feed worth reading was like finding a needle in a haystack and that can make new users give up before they experience the fun of reading blogs everyday.”
