Back in the day, if you didn't know HTML, or code, you couldn't
publish content on the web. Well, nowadays with tools such as
Wordpress, and services like Blogspot, and Xanga, anyone.. yes anyone
can tell the whole world what is on their mind through blogging.
But, there really isn't a robust way to search for the best blogs on
any specific topic. Sure, there's Technorati, but what else? Besides,
much of the world wide web is full of splogs, spam, and
made-for-adsense blogs. And how many times have you read the same
exact post over and over in different blogs?
That is why a project, listing the top blogs by general categories
would prove useful. The book, titled "The Top 500 Blogs" is being
written by Vicky Zhou of GotACrush.com. From topics ranging
from dating to technology, lifestyle, sports, music, health and
fashion, the books aims to be a comprehensive list of the top 500
blogs on the world wide web.
The Top 500 Blogs will be out in bookstores in Q4 of 2008. Just
Another Tech Blog will be included in the category of "Technology",
so keep an eye out for that!
I received an email notifying me of this the other day. Some things just make you smile :-) Thanks!
