Media Discovers Blogs: Part MCCLXXII
Time Magazine writes about bloggers and blogging, and recognizes its top five "blogs to watch".
Those five are:
- Fark - A cool site, although the articles description, "[a] venue for posting the odd pictures and news items he liked to gather and send to friends in endless, annoying e-mails" is all-too-accurate.
- Instapundit - well, duh.
- Wonkette - a site that's gotten very tired.
- Rebecca Blood - Huh? Standard-issue mild-left blogger, worst design I've seen on a website lately, and not even an especially big player; the article notes Blood gets "about 30,000 visitors a month". Yowza - "Shot in the Dark" got 33,000 in May, and is on track for 36,000 in June. Time: Have your people call my people!
An interesting article, nonetheless.
Still - what kind of list was that?
The five blogs I find myself reading most often these days (besides obvious ones like my six Northern Alliance colleagues and Instapundit):
- Vox Popoli - Vox Day is an eclectic polymath (although, come to think of it, is there any other kind of polymath? Something about "monomaniacal polymath" just doesn't compute). Anyway - christian technogeek libertarian entrepreneur columnist. It's a fun blog.
- Belmont Club - The best strategy/politics blog out there; like reading Den Beste, only it takes about a third as long.
- Evangelical Outpost - Philosophy, pop culture, religion, social criticism, gratuitous erudition.
- Sheila's Redheaded Ramblings - She makes "maddening eclecticism" enjoyable. Everything from her Victor Klemperer's notes to Rasputin's equipment. When I say it's a "Guilty pleasure", it's only because as a good Scandinavian protestant, everything makes me feel guilty.
- Jay Reding - A news-cycle blogger with some great insights; think Captain Ed with better Libertarian cred.
So what's your hot list?
