Most of us, it seems, are more than happy to wave goodbye to 2008. The economic collapse has led to across-the-board job losses in nearly every industry—journalism most definitely included. And, although the blogosphere has certainly felt the economic downturn, with blog closings and layoffs affecting big names like Gawker, this past year still proved to be a banner one for high-quality blogs—good news for those of us trying to keep our minds on sunnier things.
For the second year in a row, we’ve done an informal survey across the PCMag editorial staff to find out which sites our colleagues and coworkers have their RSS readers pointed to. What follows are our Top 100 Blogs. They’re not necessarily the best, or even the most informative, but they are what we’re reading. The blogs contained herein range from the newsy to the absurd—all in all, we think they represent a fairly comprehensive cross-section of what’s out there.
We also tried our hardest to mix up the list by not featuring too many selections from last year, but let’s face it, a classic is a classic. The blogs have been arranged alphabetically in groups of ten. Check out the full list below.
