Now that blogging has firmly entered the mainstream of online activities, the number of blogging services seems to be increasing by the day. But there are a few platforms out there that are miles ahead of the competition, offering the perfect mix of basic functionality and advanced features. These blog hosts each have their own unique take on just what blogging should be, so it’s important to consider their differences as well as their unifying characteristics.

I was looking for reviews, price list, comparisons while I was planning to buy my first DSLR. I settled for the Nikon D40x as it came under my budget and I think I made a good choice for an entry level, hobby photography DSLR.
During my planning process, co-incidentally, a client of mine emailed me about TestFreaks, a new aggregator kinda sites that pulls in reviews, test, etc from blogs, forums and news sites. I won’t say the site is one stop point for all your reviews reading but it does prove to be a good starting point. They are expected to start their private beta soon, sign-up if you wish to be invited.
