@home.com is bogus.  "Of the various blogs I've written or produced,
the ones that worked best -- the ones that had the biggest and most
loyal readerships -- always had a few consistent qualities. They were
topically focused, often in niche areas. They published regularly and
frequently, typically during office hours and several times a day.
They published content that was original or difficult to find, from
breaking news to proprietary photographs to obscure links that readers
are unlikely to find on their own. They were usually well-written,
which has its own intrinsic appeal for anyone who prefers to enjoy
what they're reading. And lastly, they engaged their readership by
soliciting feedback and responding to it, in the form of asking for
tips, allowing comments or otherwise demonstrating some level of
interest in their audience's preferences." - Elizabeth Spiers
