Joelogon's Blog Analysis and Review Tool

So I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about what makes a quality blog. Of course, it's a subjective value judgment, but I think there are a number of objective criteria that we can look at to set a baseline for discussion.

Now, although the results are based on objective criteria, I can't really claim it's anything but a subjective analysis, partly because I'm the one choosing the criteria and setting the parameters, but mostly because I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

Anyway, I threw a tool together that takes your blog URL, submits it to a series of publicly-available tools that each analyze a different aspect of your blog; the results are mashed together by a proprietary algorithm that takes into account those objective factors and mixes it in with all my biases and judgments, producing a result of dubious quality.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Great tool! Very informative. It's amazing how many different criteria you were able to pull together into one report.
