It is with sadness that I announce the closure of BritBlog: the British Blog Directory.
We’ve had over four years of fun with this project, but after a recent hacking incident and with the constant battle against spammers and spam blogs, I have to admit that I just don’t have the time to put into the project that it needs (and deserves).
Long-time members will be aware that the site has changed little since we went live, and although a great deal of preparation, research and investment went into plans for
a new version of the site (”BritBlog 2.0″ so to speak), I’ve just not been able to find the time to actually put them into action.
I would like to thank everyone who helped make the site a success, especially Nancy, who spent literally hundreds of hours checking out new signups.
Perhaps one day the site will return in a new guise — and I really I hope it does — but in the meantime I’m left with no option but to take it offline.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause to anyone. Feel free to discuss this announcement below if you like, or contact me if you need any further information.
