I just discovered the weblog search tool Technorati. It appears this blog has been indexed by it (try searching "LexisNexis" and you should see posts put in here the last couple days). It appears to index this blog a lot faster than Google.
I have not signed up for a membership but it looks like you can use this tool to watch for discussions in blogs. Over 3 1/2 million blogs are tracked! I like the features "BookTalk" and "NewsTalk" which indicate which books and news topics are currently being discussed in blogs. Doubt I will ever make the "Top 100" popular blogs but it is interesting to see what has made it. Not surprisingly BoingBoing is right up there.
