BlogJuice: Learn About A Blog’s Readers With One Click

MyBlogLog is a powerful application for learning more about any blog’s readership but with the release of an API last month, we knew this Yahoo! owned service was only going to get cooler. Kent Brewster at Yahoo! has hit a home run with BlogJuice, a javascript bookmarklet that uses MyBlogLog and YahooPipes to quickly display any information available on other sites about recent readers of a blog you’re visiting.

I regularly check the MyBlogLog widget on a new blog I discover to see if I recognize the faces of other recent readers, as a way to get a feel for the site’s community. BlogJuice takes that practice and amplifies its usefulness by orders of magnitude.

MyBlogLog lets users list their accounts on a variety of different services elsewhere and BlogJuice displays readers’ job titles via LinkedIn, recent bookmarks on Del.icio.us, StumbleUpon and Digg, recent photos on Flickr, music on Last.fm and videos on YouTube. Clicking on a person’s own blog in the display will show you the reader community for the blog they write. Wow.

I’m sure this is only the beginning of what can be done with MyBlogLog and I’m very excited to see what comes next. As I said when the MyBlogLog API launched, for all the good discussion around Data Portability, MyBlogLog is making things happen quickly. It’s being done through proprietary technology, under the umbrella of one particular vendor, but damn is it hot.

It’s not often that a tool comes along that I can imagine myself using every day. If BlogJuice holds up over time and traffic, this handy little service will join that list for me.
