Silicon Valley Watcher - Former FT journalist Tom Foremski reporting from the intersection of technology and media

Media giant Cnet finds the 100 needles in the 14m blog haystack--is your favorite blog a needle?

Cnet recently posted its Top 100 Blogs, giving out much link love to the blogosphere, or at least to some of the uberbloggers.

Cnet asks...

With more than 14 million blogs in existence and another 80,000 being created each day, how is a person supposed to find the ones worth reading?"

Of course, I was delighted that Cnet editors named Silicon Valley Watcher in the Top 100, and in the Top 16 of all Tech Business blogs.

[BTW, this is how link-love spreads--Cnet is very savvy.]

However, with Best 100 lists and other popularity lists attracting and aggregating the blog clicks, it must get tougher every day for new writers to establish themselves. That's why SVW will increasingly feature some of the other, less noisy voices out in the digital ether.
