All I can say is, it's been a long wait. Google's finally heard the call of the masses and created a service for blog-searching. It even comes in two flavors: the Google Blog Search and the Blogger Search (which can alse be found in Blogger's homepage, or through the Blogger Dashboard, or as the Search All Blogs button in Blogger's Navbar). It still has a lot of catching-up to do (particularly in the index-size category) before it could kick Technorati's ass completely, but it's already faster, cleaner, and less spam-infested, so I reckon it won't be long now. Even Microsoft's Robert Scoble likes it (you could use the feed: operator in Microsoft's MSN Search to search for blogs, btw).
