    I visit quite a few sites regularly (read: many, many times a day) in order to scan the headlines and read a few of the stories. As I find new sites, the time spent surfing grows to the point that I'm hardly getting any work done!

    So, using a WordPress as a base, I've created my own site that aggregates the most interesting headlines and stories of the past 24 hours from around the web. I can scan the list and just click through to the ones I'm interested in!

    Let me know what you think!

    Nice use of wordpress there although I have seen this done many times before. I am liking the logo and the use of the theme. Just a note that the link on the copyright in your footer is broken.

    Although if the site is just for you to catch up with the headlines from sites you enjoy reading would it not of been simpler to just use a RSS reader?

    Thanks for the heads up on the footer link. Do you have some of the links to the other sites you've seen like this?

    Also, I was at first using an RSS reader, but I kept shooting stuff to friends. So this is for them too. And anyone else who wants to join in the fun!

    Thanks for the compliments on the logo!

    Makes sense if you are sharing a lot of the links with friends. I cannot remember most of the sites that I have seen do this as I do not use them, but one I do remember is http://everygamersblog.com/all-gaming-news/

    It is nice to see that you have put some good effort into the site and the layout works very well.
