I’m going to start a completely sporadic series of posts where I highlight some of my favorite “undiscovered gem” blogs, i.e. blogs that have excellent content but that might not be considered big in terms of having tons of traffic. (The random criteria I came up with to define “undiscovered” is if it has fewer than 100 Google Reader subscribers.)
I’ve wanted to do this for a while, since so often I’ll be reading something on my feed reader and think, “This blog is so good! More people need to be reading it!” Also, I’ve had various blogs going back to 2004, and I’ve always noticed that it seems like a lot of blogs that do have a fair amount of traffic primarily link to other high-traffic blogs, and when you’re not “one of them” you start to feel like you’re stuck in some kind of small blog ghetto. Or maybe that’s just me.
Anyway, I’m not sure how often I’ll do these posts — maybe once or twice a month? — but I hope that you all enjoy these glimpses into some of my favorite undiscovered gems in the online world!
