Faceted blog distillation aims at finding blogs with recurring interest to a topic while satisfying a specific facet of interest. In this paper we focus on the personal facet and propose a method that uses opinion features as indicators of personal content. Experimental results on TREC BLOG08 data-set confirm our intuition that personal blogs are more opinionated.
