PC World's Top 100 Blogs

PC World published their top 100 blogs list yesterday. Officially, it's called "100 Blogs We Love." There are many of the usual suspects on the list - BoingBoing, Slashdot, Gizmodo, TechCrunch, Wonkette, Seth Godin's blog, Daily Kos, Huffington Post, 43 Folders, etc. etc. I almost hate to list them because they get so much attention. For you early bloggers out there, the reality sets in quickly that blog ranking seems to be pretty fixed. Unless you do some serious marketing, your blog is not going to reach Technorati's top 100, or anyone else's, because people are creatures of habit. Most of them will go to the big blogs, the ones with millions or thousands of readers and they're going to stay there for quite some time. Those big blogs don't ever seem to lose rank, unless they're just jockeying around on the list a few spots. The earliest bloggers had an open field and thus could cement their rankings as long as their writing was decent. Well, there are quite a number of well-written lesser known blogs, and I'd like to see them get some recognition. I'm going to try to create my own top 100 list of blogs. I have a few already on my list, which I'll post later. In the meantime, feel free to suggest blogs that you read that don't get much airplay.
