Maybe this is a question (if the functionality exists, I don't know how to use it), but if not its an idea.
Some form of searching for blurblogs needs to exist to help find one. Even if you can search by topics (tech, hobbies, etc.) and show users that have shared those tags would be cool.
I'd really like to get into the social aspect of Newsblur, but without knowing anyone specifically to follow, not sure how I am to "find" people.
Help get this topic noticed by sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, or email.
