Like many of us, I get tired of some (many, no… most) lists of “best”, “Top” or “most influential” bloggers, which are always seemingly pulled together from a very limited bunch, with no substantial formula behind them, and always featuring the same people. Yes, we know those bloggers are awesome, but heck with literally thousands and thousands of bloggers around the world, surely there are others we should be getting access to as well.
So I decided to do something different. I’m offering a dynamically updated list of what YOU consider to be the best posts over the last year, and collecting links to them here so you can all click through and enjoy a digest version. This is not my version, it’s yours.
I’d love to include your recommendations. It’s simple:
a. Please tweet me or comment with *your own* most popular or favourite post from 2010, including a link. OR
b. Please tweet me or comment with the post from *another blogger* you most enjoyed in 2010.
I’ll keep adding to it daily as your links come in. I’d recommend adding these bloggers to your feed readers if they’re not there already, particularly as they are internationally represented! I’m listing them with the link to the post separated, in case you want to collect them yourself. Here’s to more fantastic blogging in 2011!
