The link is still pointing to the admin page. Perhaps you only edited the text, and not the actual link URL?

OK, here you go! :)

http://edkolis.blogspot.com/search/label/roguelikes

edit: Actually, I did tag one non-dev post as "roguelikes", but it was a discussion of the genre in relation to other genres of games. Is that OK, or should I make a specific "roguelike-dev" tag?
What if you want to make more general posts not development related in the future?  Please make a specific roguelike-dev tag.

Here's my roguelike tag: https://http://zireael07.wordpress.com/category/roguelike/

I've got a comparison with Incursion in the works, do you want to see it?
The posts you do have are release notes and relevant to players of your game, not to people who might want to develop their own game.

If in the future you start posting development-related posts, please put them under a custom tag like roguelike-dev away from release notes, and I'll be happy to add the blog.

I have a category on my blog for "design" which is for all the more generic articles about making roguelikes:

Well, if you're going to be that strict, then technically none of my posts are of interest to people developing their own roguelikes, unless you count "me blabbing on about the progress of my roguelike" of interest to folks developing their own... I mean, I'm not getting into algorithms or anything useful; just sharing what I've done so far. Maybe I misunderstood what you were looking for, and so my blog wouldn't be a good fit for your aggregator?

It isn't a case of strictness.  It's a case of focusing on a topic.

The aggregator is for people that want some insight into how others are working on their own roguelikes.  They don't need to be discussing algorithms, while occasionally some posts on that topic are interesting, they might be discussing how they did their UI.  Or how they implemented some element of their game world.  Or they might even describe how some part of their game works, with screenshots, and ask for thoughts from other developers.

There's a difference between this and release notes.

Thanks for setting this up, love having this all in one place.

Here's mine:

Got lots of strange stuff relating to random dungeon creation. Moved from pure 2d into 2.5D (it's not actually in 3d, but it is - if you get me?)

Reading up those blogs, prolly going to have a post about dungeon generation up sometime soon.

EDIT: Choose, any way to check older posts on the aggregator? The earliest I can see are May 8.
