Blog Hopping

One Blog Thing leads to another -- and the best way to find a great blog is to go to one. Most blogs have a long list of internal links within their postings, as well as a sidebar listing their favorite blogs.

I've listed one Blog Directory --- but a word of caution first. Be sure to click on "advanced blog search" and do a word search. If you just start linking to blogs by topic you'll have to plow through dozens of diaries, rantings, porn, and hopelessly outdated blogs. Time consuming. Frustrating. If you cllick on the Blogspot logo on the top of THIS blog, you will find such a list. Good luck. . .

If you read about a blog in the newspaper or a magazine - be sure to try it. If a blog has national attention, it's probably worth your time. Here are a few to get you started.
  • Blog Directory

  • The Blogarama Directory is a general place to start. You might want to check out their "preferences" link to activate various filters.

    The best of the political blogs are two that are regularly quoted in the press. Both have national reputations for accuracy and insight, often blog back and forth, and offer a balanced view of the political scene -- IF you link to both of them!

  • Talking Points Memo
  • Talking Points Memo by Joshua Marshall offers political analysis from the Left. He can go on a bit, but his comments are well researched and insightful. Also includes a long list of blog links.

  • Instapundit
  • This nationally known blog not only comes from Right, he is also a law professor at UT!

  • South Knox Bubba

  • South Knox Bubba offers a great taste of Knoxville/national news, politics, barbeque recipes, and photographs - If you start saying "OK. Then." I'll know you've bookmarked SKB. And you're not alone. It's another Knoxville blog that has received national acclaim.

  • Library Chronicles

  • For a personal blog by a guy who works in a New Orleans library, try this one. You'll meet all sorts of his friends, co-workers and a few "patrons we love to hate." -- It's a fun and gentle site.

    Let me know what you find! It's a blog jungle out there!
