And right off the bat he gave you one good reason to submit your blog (if you've got original content) to the Upcoming Queue:
Neatorama is one of the most popular blogs on the Internet. They cover all sorts of neat, weird and interesting things. A great part of their stories is also sent by the readers themselves.
