Alltop creates special section for top “Chicano” sites

LatinaLista — As blogs continue to multiply, it's harder and harder to find quality sites that have the kind of content that is worth reading in a time-crunched day. But it's not like people are not trying to find these sites.
According to Technorati's recently released report, State of the Blogosphere 2008, 50 percent of all Internet users in 2007 read blogs. In fact, Technorati has indexed 133 million blog records since 2002.
That's a lot of blogs to wade through. To help us, we've had news aggregators like GOOGLE News or HispanicTips. Now, there's another site that wants to help everyone make sense of all the good sites that are out there — ahem, Latina Lista being one of them, of course.
Alltop, all the top stories
It's called Alltop and as their creators like to say — "We help you explore your passions by collecting stories from “all the top” sites on the web." They describe the site as more of a "digital magazine rack" where topics like Politics, Chicano, Books, Women, etc are broken down into their own sections comprised of quality sites on that particular topic.
What's handy is that on the homepage, the site remembers what topics you were interested in and showcases them in a special area, so there's no added step of hunting down the topic from the easy-to-use alphabet menu.
For full disclosure, Latina Lista is listed on Alltop under "Politics" and "Chicano." In any event, it is a handy site to bookmark when there's no time to surf for the information you need.
