For those of you reading this on VentureBlog.com rather than on an RSS reader, you may have noticed a new feature on VentureBlog. There is now a search box powered by Rollyo, my friend Dave Pell's company. The cool thing about the Rollyo search box is that not only can you search for a term on VentureBlog, but you can also search for a term on all of the venture capital blogs listed in my blogroll (labeled "Top VC Blogs" in the search box).
The VB Rollyo search is a pretty great resource. When I started writing VentureBlog three years ago, there was virtually nothing on the web about the real nitty gritty of venture capital. If you were looking for information about the venture capital industry, you could search on Yahoo or Google but would find a pretty patchy bunch of resources. Now, given the number of interesting venture capital blogs, there's a huge amount of information about all aspects of the industry available online. And all of it is now searchable really simply using the Rollyo search box on VentureBlog.
My hope is that other venture capital blogs will adopt the Rollyo venture capital search as well. That way, no matter what venture capital blog you're on, you can search all of them for additional info on any topic you may find of interest. I started writing VentureBlog in hopes of providing a resource for entrepreneurs who were looking for information about the venture capital industry. The combination of the many great VC blogs that have emerged and now the simple ability to search them all, has well exceeded my original ambitions. I hope that the readers of VentureBlog find the Rollyo venture capital search as useful as I do.
