Yesterday I happened to speak with a blog friend for the first time, Brad Feld, and he told me about Lijit. Its a social search play that creates a widget for searching across your blog, social bookmarks and blogroll. Today they announced $3.3M in funding from Boulder Ventures.
I've added it to the bottom right of my blog. You can also play with it on their site, where I found Rick Klau, or on Paul Kedrosky's blog. When setting up Ligit they have a swift utility for adding content sources such as Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, Del.icio.us, Stumble Upon, Flickr, Youtube and MyBlogLog. Adding the widget is simple, you gain a different kind of insight into use and you can browse implicit and explicit profiles. Lijit reminds me of Dandelife's Lifestreaming and Sam Ruby's MeMeme for the network represented and Eurekster and MyBlogLog for the widget effect. Its still early for Lijit, and I'll be watching the results as they come in.
