Anyway, I read all the most recent posts that I had missed over the past week while I was traveling. I still wanted more. I was having fun. In the past I would have gone to Google or Yahoo! and looked at the news for something interesting. I would have visited the Stern Fan Network or College Humor. I might have even gone to blogspot and just hit the ‘Next Blog’ button on the top to scroll through a list of blogs that really were about nothing. But this time, I found the Holy Grail.
I went to my favorite blog sites (Cultured State, DC Blogs, Kevin Mills, BuzzMachine, A VC), which I had read already, and looked at the sites they liked reading (aka their BlogRoll). All of a sudden I was opened up to a rich other world of bloggers. Now, most of these sites were either out of date (note – I do realize that just because a site has not posted in a week or two, does not mean it is not a good blog, blogs are more like magazines than newspapers) or not my cup of tea, but I did find a few additional sites that were good reading. They also were a lot of what I was interested in, since they were the blogs that people I liked to read, would read themselves.
I was able to read many new insights into topics that I enjoy. I updated my blogroll to make sure it was really up to date on the blogs I read. I also added a few blogs that I came across during my journey. I hope people start using the blogroll more often. It is a great way to discover great and exciting content.
I also hope one day, that I never have to see a blog roll that says: Google News, Edit-me, Edit-me!
