View Full Version : The most influential Blogs...according to me (please add yours)

31-01-2006, 09:44 AM
I'll try to compile a little list of some of the better know blogs for you. Internet weblog ,"blog" journalism is becoming more reputable. The nature of the bloggers, and their independence, allows them to delve deeper into complex issues, and highlight stories important, but not sensational enough to make the traditional media. I can provide links to some of the well know liberal blogs. If anyone is willing to contribute some time to compile a list of conservative blogs, I am sure it would be much appreciated.
