Introducing a search engine for UU blogs.

What a useful tool Paul Wilczynski has put together at UUBlogSearch.com. It performs site-specific Google searches on approximately 50 Unitarian Universalist blogs and other content-rich sites (using Google's co-op tool), including uuworld.org and UUA.org. If you want to find out how a topic has been discussed on the two primary denominational sites and on a host of blogs, your search just got much easier. Thanks, Paul!

Thanks for the mention.

I admit to wondering whether or not I should include the UUA/UUWorld feeds in http://www.UUBlogSearch.com . After trying a few searches, it seemed that the UUA entries, for example, sometimes overwhelmed the true blog entries.

I'd be interested to hear what others think about this.

My guess is that I'm not gonna eliminate the UUWorld feed for obvious reasons :)

Would you include other blogs, like mine?

Paul, can you modify it to default to searching "blogs-only" and have a selectable option that searches blogs+UUA/UUWorld feeds?

I think you're right (my single test was swamped with UUA/World citations and I just sighed and moved on). This is sad, because the significance of the sometimes fast, sometimes slow and meandering, blog-discussion and contemplation of various things seems to me to be of greater interest (and maybe import, in the longer run). But right now, there's no real way to access it easily.

(For the curious, I searched on "Salvation," thinking that some really interesting thinking might be going on.)

Pat,

I broke it up into 2 search boxes - one for the blogs only, and one for the UUA/UUWorld web sites.
