A couple of days ago I had an email from someone asking me to name my top 10 blogs for publication on their website.
Ordinarily this would be flattering enough. However, this request came from the Editor in chief of Blogs.com – a property of Six Apart who also own TypePad, Moveable Type and Vox – and previous guest contributors include:
- Craig Newmark (Craigslist)
- Chris Anderson (Wired)
- Gina Trapani (founding editor of Lifehacker)
- Marc Andreessen (Ning and Netscape)
- Sarah Lacy (tech journalist)
- MC Hammer
Naturally, I jumped at the chance. I’ve been told I can either make a list of 10 blogs on a subject I know something about or I can make a general, possibly more eclectic, list of favourites.
I’ve got a few ideas about what I’d like to put together but am going to mull over for a day or two. When it’s done I’ll post my explanations of why I think each blog is so great.
