First2Board is a collection of blogs, comparable to BoardingArea or Upgrd. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to have the two listed separately IMO.

And if you're looking for a collection of blogs focused on miles/points there are more than 120 listed here.

You've got the 90 posts requirement squared away, so you must be close if you joined in January. Few more days?

If someone does not have wiki privileges and wants to update he wiki, post the information in a regular post down here and I (or some other helpful soul) can put it in the wiki.

Raffles embedded his link in the name of the blog.

What's the consensus, is that a better approach or do folks want to see the url (to see, for example, that a blog is part of Boarding Area or whatever)????

Thank you!

And I actually prefer to see which blogs are self-hosted and which are on boarding area or part of some other blog conglomerate. It just makes it more efficient so you know you can visit boarding area just once to check out all its blogs in one place and not open 50 windows
