Iain Dale has pronounced on the Top 100 LibDem blogs. He has judged them on "design; frequency of posting; writing ability; personality; comment; humour; range; interaction; popularity; independence of thought."
Blimey. He's been working hard if he had to go through 100+ Blogs and mark them on all that. Rather him than me.
In my humble opinion, Mr Dale has shown excellent judgment and laser-like insight in preparing this list. (Indeed, "laser-like insight" would be a good quote for his top banner but I doubt he would use a quote from pondlife like me). But then again, I would approve of his judgment, wouldn't I? (See list). There is nothing that keeps the blogosphere ticking over more than mutual back-slapping. Blogging is, to a certain extent, a modern version of "vanity publishing".
