Edgeio, which crawls the edge of the Internet for listings, has been busy since its launch and will soon be rolling out feature that make it easier to post a listing. At first launch, Edgeio could only be used if you had an RSS feed of listings or a blog to post a listing to. This concept tends to only focus on the population that participates in the blogosphere which is limiting when trying to enable the most comprehensive listings service. Not to mention, do you really want to post for sale items on your blog? Or would you need to set up a separate blog to post for sale items?
On a recent Gillmor Gang podcast Mike Arrington, co-founder of Edgeio, spoke about its recent progress. Edgeio now will now offer a way for users to post a listing and create a blog to house the ad. With the addition of the new feature, Edgeio has the potential to become a very large scale hosted blog platform for publishing items fairly quickly which increases the risk of exploration by splog (something I know a little bit about with my Splog Reporter experiences).

UPDATE: Keith Teare, co-founder of Edgeio, has posted a detailed list of Edgeio enhancements which you can read here.
