Come Hop on My Lily Pad

My friend and Tweeple Mom Dot tweeted this great social add-on feature for mine and your blog! Track your friends, your readers, and network to maximum potential. Here is what I am talking about, the Blog Frog, straight from their web site:

TheBlogFrog turns your blog into a social blog. When you are a member of TheBlogFrog, you can install "Social Add-ons" to make your friends a part of your blog. You can install the Recent Visitors Add-on and it will show a picture of your friend when they visit your blog. The Chat Wall Add-on let's your friends send you notes, or you can use it to write a mini-blog post. The News Feed Add-on will tell you when your friends have posted and what they're talking about on their Chat Wall.

How does it work?

When you sign up for TheBlogFrog, it asks for the address of your blog (you can try it without a blog too, but it's not as fun). Behind the scenes, TheBlogFrog visits your blog and looks at your Link List or BlogRoll. A LinkList is the thing on your sidebar where you can put links to all your other friends who blog. The people on this LinkList then become your Blog Friends. Once TheBlogFriends knows who your Blog Friends are, you can install "Social Add-ons" on your blog and start having fun with your friends.
When you sign up, TheBlogFrog also asks you where you went to High School and College. It uses this information to show you who else is blogging from your schools. You can also add a workplace, church, neighborhood and so on. This is called the "Social Blog Directory" and lots of new entries are added each day so be sure to check back often.

Go check it out!
