Who Belongs On Our "Blogs To Read In 2010" List?

(Why This List Matters.)

We're in the final stretch of putting together our annual list, "10 Blogs To Read in 2010".

What blogs do you read every day? What blogs help you learn? What blogs keep you informed? What blogs make you laugh? Who's the best writer out there?

Think of it this way: "I read many others, but these are the LIS blogs that read even when time is short"

I'm looking for input from as many people as possible so the final list doesn't miss any new talented bloggers. My goal again this year is simple, we'll list 10 blogs that, when followed as a group, paint a complete picture of what's going on in our little world. You can leave a comment below, hit the contact form, or send an email to [email protected].

John DiGilio's iBraryGuy.com has lots of "best of" lists and in-depth analysis of
productivity tools for libraries, librarians and information professionals.

Nicole Engard's What I Learned Today (http://www.web2learning.net/) has lots of tech tips as well as deep insight into open-source systems for libraries. She's not afraid to take a stand, and encourages other info pros to be strong proponents as well. See http://www.web2learning.net/archives/3434
