The New Top-list

Way! After some discussion about the Finnish blog top-100 list, and why it is so difficult to be a top-100 blogger, Just Sopivasti (in Finnish) went and created his own top-list. It's a good (though used) idea - I recommend everyone to publish ten of the blogs they think are the best.

Though in all honesty, I don't think these have any impact on the significance of the Pinseri list, as that is generated automatically from reader list most people tend to use. If you dislike the whole thing, you can remove yourself off the top-list (Finnish), but remain on the list of all blogs.

(I'm going slightly overboard - you can see my own top-100 on the right, as usual. At least those that have RSS feeds; there are only two that I follow which don't. I don't read bad blogs, therefore the one on the right is my personal top-100-or-so. ;) The list does change according to my whims - of course. You wanna be on it? Be interesting, or be a friend. Preferably both. And have an RSS feed.

... he said, fully well knowing that nobody really cares :)


Don't worry, I'm not gonna make this a fight over blogtastes, although my initial question might sound like it: how do you define a "bad blog"?

What I mean by that is that, if you wholeheartedly disagree with the writer, possibly even think he/she is a complete moron, but does write well, do you still consider it worth your while to keep tabs on what they're up to?

And no, I'm not referring to any personal or even semi-personal enemies' blogs here ;) Tried not to sound like it too, but seems like failed at that. Oh, well.

Uskomatonta, olen tuolla listalla. Tosin kakkosblogillani. Hah!

Jani - it's a difficult question. However, I've learned that life is too short to be wasted around morons. People I disagree with, yeah, them I read. If I think they're good, they might even end up on my public list.

There's also a private list, on which I keep the people I like to keep tabs on, but I don't want to look like I'm endorsing them. Or don't want people to know I read...

There are also a bunch of blogs I follow irregularly, usually through the Top-list. These include blogs I consider somewhat... uneven, or not simply worth reading all the time, only when I have a few spare hours. I try to read through most of the Top-100 list every few weeks, just to keep tabs on what different people are saying.

It's a mouthful :)
