Many thanks, Richard, as I wasn't familiar with http://scholar.aci.info/ and wondered what had essentially replaced the Google Blog Search of yesteryear. I gave it one "test" and it worked: I searched the blog entry "High Blood Cancer Response Rates Found for Cell Therapies" (http://sciencebusiness.technewslit.com/?p=28181) which I was aware of because it links to an article in one of the journals we publish (I discovered via http://www.altmetric.com -- which includes blogs but I suppose that's getting off topic -- I am a big fan of www.altmetric.com for a variety of reasons) and it retrieved it.

Forgive that eyesore of a "sentence."

I have looked at this scholarly blog index that seems pretty high-quality and easy to use: http://scholar.aci.info/

it is blog-only, rather than "includes" blogs, though.
