ISSN for weblogs

If anyone cares: I've applied for an ISSN number for my weblog.

The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) is an eight-digit number which identifies periodical publications as such, including electronic serials. More than one million ISSN numbers have so far been assigned.

It is managed by a world wide network of National Centres coordinated by an International Centre based in Paris, backed by Unesco and the French Government.

The ISSN is used by various partners throughout the information chain: libraries, subscription agents, researchers, information scientists, newsagents (through its barcode version).

From: issn.org

More info: ISSN for Weblogs:

Weblogs meet the definition of "serial" (periodical) under the so-called Anglo-American cataloguing rules. [...]

There are a couple of advantages to securing an ISSN for your blog: Legitimacy and indexation.
