  Guessing if a link leads to a weblog or not?

Technical weblog research question:

I have a list of links and I'd like to find out which of them lead to weblogs. Is there a way of doing this automatically?

Things that I thought about:

  • guessing from url - would work for weblogs hosted in most popular platforms
  • check if there is RSS/Atom feed - would exclude weblogs without feeds and include general sites with RSS feeds
  • match url against database of any weblog indexing site - would include only subset of weblogs and you have to get the database first
  • ...

Do you have any suggestions?

  Skype :(

In case you see me online at Skype and try to call, but I'm not answering:

  • it's not because I don't like you (I probably do :)
  • it's a Skype synchronisation problem... I run it at work and usually forget to switch off when leaving. Then I connect at home, but as Skype doesn't synchronise I end up with being online at two machines. In a strange way some incoming calls only pop-up at work, so I don't see them at home and find "missed calls" next day at work...

So, if you are calling me on Skype and I'm not answering while you see that I'm online, please email me or drop an instant messaging note (I'm on MSN most of the time, on Yahoo & AIM occasionally, nicknames via email).

And - as there is no way to synchronise Skype contact lists as well, please, forgive me if I ask for authorisation for the second time :)
