I am not just trying my luck here, I am actually doing my best for my sites to get accepted in this highly ranked directory.

Here's how you can add your website or your blog to DMOZ Open Directory:

1. Check if your site is appropriate for submission to the Open Directory Project.
Unlike search engines, ODP is highly selective and does not accept all sites. There is even automatic rejection for mirror sites or sites that redirect to another address. They are even more strict to affiliate sites, get paid to surf links, or MLM (Multi-level Marketing). Complete list of requirements can be found in the submissions page: Suggest a URL for DMOZ

2. Verify if the site is already listed or not. They don't allow duplicate submission.

3. Choose the best category for your site.
I just made two submissions:

4. After selecting the the best category for your site, click "Suggest URL" at the upper right hand corner of the webpage. You have to fill up the submission form with the required information. As for site description, limit it to 20-30 words and avoid promotional spiels.

Note from DMOZ:
Some categories do not have "suggest URL" or "update URL" links. These categories don't accept submissions, so you should find a more specific category for your site.

What are the benefits of being listed in the DMOZ ODP:
- good backlink, DMOZ is PR8
- get listed to partners sites such as AOL Search, Google, Netscape Search, Yahoo Search, and hundreds of other sites
