Thought I’d rerun the stats on my top tech blogs. I’ve posted on this before but thought it would be interesting to see what’s changed since September as I’ve discovered some new blogs. I’m mostly interested in blogs giving info on new online applications and services, PC freeware, PC troubleshooting, Windows tips and tricks, learning Linux, learning WordPress, and social networking, and hopefully you are too. I love discovering new stuff!
Google Reader can show you trends for the blogs you follow over the last 30 days. In Google Reader, I star posts I find really useful and that I may want to go back to at some point. So, for me, the blog with the most stars is my top tech blog. Here’s a screenshot showing the top 20 blogs with the most starred posts in Google Reader in November.
I have separate RSS feeds for Makeuseof and their Web Services Directory, that’s why they appear twice on the list. But when you take them together, they are way out in front as my top tech blog, followed by gHacks and Download Squad. I discovered Madhur Kapoor’s blog back in October and it’s a new entry into my top 20 list. Digital Inspiration, PC Mech, Online Tech Tips and Windows Tips and Tricks (The PC Informant) follow on behind these.
If you’re looking to start following the RSS feeds of tech blogs, I can recommend all of these. I’ll be following them all thoughout December and into 2009.
