Looking for a way to search the bigger blogsites

I've been trying to work out how to do this for the last few days, but I'm kind of stuck now...

What I want to do is search any/several of the major personal blog sites for recent posts related to a certain topic, pull the associated feeds and then process them for a little further study offline.

The back-end mechanics I'm fine with - but for some reason none of the major blog sites seems to be able to offer a decent post search (or any obvious search function in most cases).

I thought about a limited Google but I really wanted just recent data.

Any ideas?

Tony, could you give an example of a major blog site? I'm trying to understand what you're looking for but I need an example.

Blogger? Typepad? Livejournal?

At the moment I'd mainly looking at centrally hosted/managed blogs as I thought the level of organisation and standardisation would make my life easier.

You can try something like [technorati.com...] - although I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for.

Thx chrisnrae, nice find! That's the sort of thing I'm looking for I think, although I'll probably have a better idea after I get some sleep and meddle with it properly tomorrow.

Sounds like you want to use Feedster.
