An ISSN for my blog

According to this article from Digital Web Magazine, I could apply for an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN). Don’t know why I would need one, but for some strange reason, now that I know that I can get one for my Monologue, I want one. Here’s a snipet from the article:

If you publish a weblog, whether it’s a solo project or a group gig, then you qualify for an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN). That’s right, you are a legitimate publication like any magazine or newspaper according to the National Serials Data Program, Library of Congress.

In many cases you can apply for your number over the Web. Currently, the Library of Congress is making changes to their application form and software for processing ISSN requests of online serials so their Web application is temporarily down, but when it comes back up, go for it!
