Should I Add your Blog?

Written by George Manty  · August 14, 2006

Darren Rowse of Problogger has another group writing projectthis time with prizes!

In this project Darren is asking bloggers to write a list of anything and submit it.

I am always making lists in my day to day life. My wife says that one of my top skills is list making. What I find so funny about that is how very few lists I create on my blogs. I am very thankful for this group writing project, because it might help me to start writing more lists on my blogs.

When I first saw the project, I immediately thought of submitting “top ten tidbits of advice for Dads to be”. So did my wife Jill. I have had a lot of people tell me how funny they thought it was. However, Darren doesn’t want people submitting old lists so…

I decided to make a list of the top 10 blogs that I read on a regular basis. Note: these are not all blogs about making money, and it was hard to rank them.

Here is the list of blogs that I currently spend the most time reading:

1. All of the blogs my wife Jill writes for.
It should go without saying, but I read most of my wife’s posts and her blogs will always be number one for me.

2. ProBlogger
I read most of the posts on Problogger. Darren’s blogging advice has been very useful.

3. Aaron Wall’s SEOBook
Aaron Wall’s blog is a fun read if you are into SEO like myself. While I occasionaly check out other SEO blogs, Aaron’s is my favorite to read. Aaron’s blog almost came in second for me. It was hard to decide between 2 and 3, but Problogger won out because Darren’s posts are more frequent and more consistent.

4. Thread Watch
Whenever I am looking over my RSS subscriptions and a headline from Thread Watch intrigues me I take a peek.

5. TechnoSailor
I have recently started reading Aaron Brazels blog and enjoy it a lot.

6. Performancing
Performancing was close to being number 4 on this list. When Performancing first came on the scene I would have ranked it number 3. I think that if the postings were more consistent and more frequent I would move Performancing up to number 4 on my list.

7. Jason Calcanis blog
A couple of times a month I try to catch up with what Jason is talking about. It is pretty good reading. I think Jason is an excellent business man and while I don’t always agree with him, a lot be can learned by reading his blogs and listening to his interviews.

8. SFSignal
I occasionally have to see what my coworkers are writing on their science fiction blog. Especially since one of them reads everything I write on “If I were President

9. I gotta Tell You
Internet Marketer Jim Edwards of Minisitecreator fame has an excellent blog that I enjoy reading. Actually, these days most of his posts are really fun marketing videos.

I check out Donna’s blog every now and then to see her view on what’s happening in the Search Engine World.

If you weren’t on this list, please don’t be offended. It’s just that I couldn’t add all the blogs that I read to a top ten list. Any of you who would like to be in my next list, just post your blog in my comments, so I can go visit your blog and add them to the feeds I keep an eye on.

There were quite a few blogs that almost made my list. Here are just a few blogs (not all) that were really close to cracking my top ten in no particular order:

Jeremy Zawodny Blog
Michel Fortin Blog
Seth Godin.

What do you think about the list? Should I add your blog to my ever growing list of RSS subscriptions?

    I think it’s great! I have so many blogs on my rss reader šŸ˜‰ – I doubt I could pick just ten, but if so, Problogger would be on mine as well. Our list is up if you’d like to look –

    Have a great day!

    Of course you should add my blog. šŸ™‚ By the way, I have my own list for the project.
