The Top 25 Blogs About Blogging

Many of you have asked me why, if I want to be truly meta, do I not just blog about blogging? My answer was unsubstantive but valid: that it's already been done. A lot. As proof of that point, below is a list of what objective criteria have established as the top 25 blogs about blogging. So many to pick from!

The following is a repost from DailyBlogTips. Quality reading.

The “Top 25 Blogs About Blogging” list ranks blogs according to their Google Pagerank, Alexa rank, number of Bloglines subscribers and Technorati authority.

Each of the four factors range from 0 to 10, where 10 is the best score. The maximum total score for each blog, therefore, is 40. There will be monthly updates. Below the table you will find the details about the algorithm (check also the Top 25 SEO Blogs).
