Fifty Most Powerful Blogs Are in My Blogroll

Actually, I have 56 blogs listed, so sue me.
Out of the world’s Top 50 Most Powerful blogs, compiled by the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper, I read one regularly, Copyblogger.

That doesn’t mean I don’t pop in to read others from time-to-time just to see what all the hub-bub is all about, I’m not an avoid-at-all-costs kind of blogger. (Note to self: work on posts with lots ‘o hyphens.)

Sometimes a link will lead me to one of these “powerful” blogs. (Note to self: also add words in quotes to “hyphens” post.)

From Prince Harry in Afghanistan to Tom Cruise ranting about Scientology and footage from the Burmese uprising, blogging has never been bigger. It can help elect presidents and take down attorney generals while simultaneously celebrating the minutiae of our everyday obsessions.

I get enough of that stuff from MSM. I try not to rant (but that may change.) I’m not all that interested in national politics, or state, or local for that matter.


Despite the attention given to political blogs, only one in five Americans read them regularly, according to research firm Harris Interactive. In fact, 56% of Americans say they never read blogs that discuss politics, and just under a quarter say they read them several times a year.

I’ve never seen the fascination with Dooce, when I have a blogroll full of people of equal talent. I guess I have Dooce to thank?

Behind Dooce stands an army of personal bloggers perhaps not directly influenced by, or even aware of, her work – she represents the hundreds of thousands who decide to share part of their life with strangers.

ICanHasCheezburger is a great site. I laugh everytime I see one of their posts on other blogs. I don’t go to this blog because it’s just too good. I can click away 90 minutes easily.

The tech blogs don’t interest me. I read a couple of boomer techy bloggers that provide my required minimum daily allowance.

What’s missing from their list: and perhaps by design, since they call their list “powerful” are humor blogs.

After carefully considering the list, with an open mind, I have decided I can get along just fine without adding any more to my RSS.

My blogroll is better than theirs.

Neener. Neener. Neener.

  1. I’m slowly beginning to expand my bloggy horizons, and this looks like a great place to starts.

    And did someone say “more humor blogs”? I’ll be happy to assist you in the area of ha-ha. 😉
