I just found a visit in my referers log from blogsnow.com
I found it interesting. The display is fairly bland but I think it may have some potential.
I do not really like the name because it reads like Blog Snow to me – but maybe thats because its snowing outside.

From the about page:
I visited google news and blogdex frequently. I liked google news for its speed and blogdex for using weblogs as a source. I wanted something that is as fast as google news but uses blogs. Since there wasn’t anything like that I wrote BlogsNow.
Every sixty seconds BlogsNow generates a new list of topics. Reflecting what weblogs are talking about right now. BlogsNow will show you trends and breaking news faster than any other tool.
