Great excitement at Dale Towers in the last few minutes as the first couple of thousand copies of my Blogging Guide have arrived from the printers. I'm really pleased with the look and feel of it. For those of you who are attending the Party conferences, you'll be able to pick up your copies there. For those who aren't you can buy a copy HERE.
Anyway, the purpose of this post is to give you my fourth extract from the Guide to Political Blogging. This time it's my Top 100 Non Aligned Political Blogs. Some of you may think several ought to be in party political sections, or verge on the non political. In the end it's all about subjective judgments, isn't it?
I want to emphasise that this Top 100 and the rankings are my opinion and obviously opinions are subjective. But the list should at least generate a debate. I marked each blog out of ten on the following 10 areas: design; frequency of posting; writing ability; personality; comment; humour; range; interaction; popularity; independence of thought. This generated a mark out of 100.
To download the Top 100 Non Aligned Political Blogs as a PDF, click HERE. I will be uploading the full document as a PDF on Monday morning. You can get a dead tree version HERE. The Top 100 LibDem Blogs PDF is HERE, Top 100 Labour Blogs HERE and the Top 100 Tory Blogs are HERE. Do free to let me know what you think of all of them.
I'll be posting the overall Top 100 List first thing tomorrow morning (before I venture out for 9 holes!)
By the way, I'll be doing the papers on News 24 tonight at 11.45pm if you're interested.
