Before I took the Blogging101 class earlier this year, I was following less than 3 dozen other blogs as I just didn’t see why it matters, didn’t know how to find good ones, and didn’t think I had time to read that many.
As a result of that class, the Writing101 class that followed, and clicking on links in reblogged posts, I now know why it matters that you follow other blogs, I have found a slew of good ones to follow, and still need more time to read them all. ( 😛 ) My list of blogs I follow is now over 100.
Unfortunately, the WordPress widget for this only goes up to 50. Also, it lists them in reverse order of when I started following them, so the ones I followed earlier have fallen off the list.
So, I spent some time earlier today making a page that has all the blogs I’m currently following in alphabetical order (by blog name). Each of these offers some worthwhile reading.
