New RPG Blog Planet?

I am aware of the RPG Blog Alliance (RPGBA) and the RPG Bloggers Network.  Neither of them does exactly what I want.

If I were to create a new RPG blog aggregator that would store the article texts in full (for search and index purposes only, I don’t want to ‘steal hits’ — display only excerpts), allow search on feed and author and post keywords, easy historical browsing, and so on, I wonder how many people would be interested.

Probably want to put keywords or the like on the feeds themselves.  I imagine being able to mark (probably self-mark) a blog as OSR or 4e or Shadowrun or RPG product reviews or what have you — and probably more than one at a time — might make this more useful as well.

How many would make use of it?  How many would sign up?

    This is nice functionality, and might be useful all in one package. There do already exist several tools for doing this sort of thing though.

    For example, search a particular blog:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Ahackslashmaster.blogspot.com+secret+doors

    I know Google Reader provides an integrated search for the blogs you subscribe to.

    There is also the OSR Search, which I maintain:

    http://osrsearch.blogspot.com/

    (I realize this is probably too specific for your needs.)

    All that being said, if you do set such a thing up, feel free to add me.
