QueerFilter is a directory of weblogs written by GLBT people. QueerFilter also collects entries from these weblogs (through their XML feeds).
Blog - from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When I started blogging in 1999, there were only about 100 or so blogs. I wondered how many other GLBT bloggers there were, so I started a list. Over the years, QueerFilter has grown into the leading directory of GLBT blogs.
My name is Matt and I've been blogging since 1999. I live in NYC and live with my partner, Jeff.
If a blog has a RSS feed listed, QueerFilter will grab posts from that blog.
Unless you have registered an account on QueerFilter and specified you'd like to see them, posts from blogs marked "Not Safe for Work" should not show up (to see these posts, update your account).

If a post shows up that has a NSFW photo attached, please click on the flag icon to "Flag" the post as NSFW. This helps me to mark blogs that are NSFW.

There can be of difference of opinion of what counts as NSFW. For the purposes of this website, photos of nudity are considered NSFW.
The posts listed on the Popular page are the ones that have been clicked on the most.
If a blog post is in English, QueerFilter uses the Yahoo! Term Extraction Service to find keywords in the post. This is a service still in development, so it's not perfect! Click on the keyword to find other posts tagged with that keyword.
First, register on QueerFilter and then click on "Add a Blog."

QueerFilter is run on a Tektonic VPS and is programmed in PHP. I'd share the code if I could, but it's far to messy for anyone else to make sense of...

Here's a list of different programs, scripts, or services that go into making QueerFilter work...
Eh. I can only do so much. And this poor little server can only handle so much processing. Still, if you have a great idea for a new feature, let me know..
The only other big GLBT blog directory I know of is SpectrumBloggers.com.
