What’s On Your Blogshelf?

Admittedly, my paper reading has reduced quite a bit since I have started reading weblogs and online forums. There are no regrets, the blogs have provided the niche information which sometimes even books miss out on. In fact, nowadays, I come to know about books through my reading of blogs. Additionally, the discussoins about books through blogs have provided a new dimension to the reading.

Sometimes, blogs by book authors (Malcolm Gladwell, Freakonomics blog) continue to provide more post-book insight. Then there are Literary blogs, Creative Writing blogs, blogs about books, the news blogs and various more types. I have a lot of blogs on software engineering subjects in my blogroll.

The list of my blogs has increased dramatically over last few months. The list has grown not only because I have come across good blogs, but also because I am reading blogs in the blogroll of those good blogs. I would have appreciated if there was a feed available for blogrolls. Ofcourse, ther is the OPML format and BlogRolling web service, but feeds are really comfortable.

My reading list has grown so much that it is now pretty close to the size of my bookshelf, so I have removed it from my sidebar and dedicated a page to it, called blogshelf. WordPress provides feeds for pages, so feed from this page can be used to keep a track of my blogshelf :-).

    […] If you are looking at yet another way of finding feeds, visit Feeds That Matter (via Rajesh). A lot of feed readers offer pre-packaged bundles of feeds and you will find a lot in the Technorati rankings and the feeds that others have shared. FTM uses the top feeds in Bloglines to recommend feeds on a topic. The assumption is that Bloglines being one of the best and oldest feed readers will cover the best. However, I know some who are using other feed readers, so all these techniques, in spite of clever algorithms are limited by where they look. So, I will still rely on my ability of finding feeds.

    […] I keep looking for expanding my blogshelf. One of the primary sources of quality content has been the 9rules Network. I liked that it was founded on the original 9 rules and that it was more about passion than money. It is not that I am averse to money. But I believe that money cannot be a longterm motivation factor. It has to be something else that will drive the money. […]
