Best Blogs of 2006 that You (Maybe) Aren't Reading
« on: December 04, 2006, 11:28:42 AM »
Well, the title is absolutely right, at least about me not reading these blogs or even having heard of them. See if you are familiar with them.

Quote
Every year around this time, I attempt to summarize what's been happening online by publishing my list of the best blogs of the year [2002, 2003, 2004]. But I abruptly stopped last year because the list had become annoyingly redundant. Yes, dear blogosphere, after only six (or so) years of existence, you already have your canon, created either through fiat, power laws, or meritocracy -- you decide!

Sure, new sites break through (such as Techcrunch and Valleywag did this year), but a glance at the Technorati 100 shows that things aren't really that different than they were a few years ago. So do you really need me to prattle on about the significance of Kottke and Waxy, Romenesko and Gawker, Engadget and Scoble? I think not. Instead, this year I've gathered 30 blogs that you perhaps aren't reading.

Caveat: no human on the planet is qualified to do this, and the 500 blogs that I follow probably represents how many blogs are created in a second.1 On the other hand, this is not a list of esoteric blogs that you'll smirk at and never read again. I actually read all of these, because I think they're great.

And finally, please add your under-appreciated blog suggestions in the comments. Because really, aren't the overlooked ones the reason we're all here anyway? ...

I just ended up adding 10 more bookmarks to my collection.  :-[

I'm not reading any of them and none of them seemed particularly interesting to me, so I guess I still won't be reading them.

Make sure you check the blogs posted in the comments...there are a few good ones there.

I even left a link to one of my favorites;)

And don't forget...the best stuff is found by having a click adventure...click links to other blogs from the ones you land on...especially if you like them.

I probably won't keep all the bookmarks I added, but there were some I found that deserve a closer look at some point in the future.

Is this for real? Are there other websites out there that are awesome/interesting/should-be-on-my-daily-visit-list/etc that I do not know about?

Straight up. But not just that, there are thousands of excellent websites that would be great to be a part of/or commute on, etc. that you don't know about.. or maybe you do know about [some of] them but don't have the time to look at every amazing resource you find...

You can only be apart of so many communities/sites..
The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

There are lots of websites in the internet I'm not reading. Most of them I don't even know about and therefore cannot make a full list.
