Lists are funny things … there have been books about them, about our desire to create, control and manage our worlds — and there are entire blogs devoted to lists. In fact, some of the very first blogs were simply that — lists of links.
In many ways, Google and Technorati are list builders, providing us with a surrogate for creating lists. Del.icio.us is another as is MyBlogLog … and there are many others. And on a smaller level, our own blogrolls are a type of recommendation list.
There are bound to be many other lists that are beyond my ripples of reading covering other category areas. But this morning I got an email for a list that is a little closer to home. Craig Harper has compiled a list of 100 Australian blogs and promises to update it each weekend. I hope it is automated … but it certainly provides me with more blogs to check out — I just don’t have to travel quite so far 😉
