WP Roll got launched today

I originally authored this post on WP Realm, but I moved it back here after that website folded.
There has been a lot of activity in the WordPress news world over the past year. Our own WP Realm has been gaining momentum and the new WP Daily has burst onto the scene as the go to place for hot off the press gossip. While these and other sites have been growing, others such as WP Candy, or WP Tavern have become very quiet.
Just last month, our own Brian Krogsgard launched poststat.us; its purpose is to provide a central collation point for all the latest and greatest from across the WordPress universe, allowing registered users to vote on what they deem relevant.
My colleague at Metronet, Kaspars Dambis, decided that he was spending an awful lot of time reading feeds about WordPress and felt that it might helpful to the rest of us if there was not only a central point for finding posts, as with poststat.us, but also a central point for finding complete sites, including rankings and information, to help you figure out which ones to subscribe to. Enter WPRoll.com, a site with user submitted blogs, curated by Kaspars himself. It uses an algorithm to rank blogs up and down, based on a variety of factors and the listings are updated automatically as new posts are added. WPRoll.com provides URLs, RSS feed links or even OPML feed exports for importing into various feed readers. You can follow WPRoll on Twitter.
If you would like to see your blog listed, go submit it on WPRoll.com for inclusion in the listings.
