I've actually slightly missed Wednesday by an hour - I blame blogger and a last minute search for two more blogs to make 100. Phew!
What better expresses the green philosophy and way of life than a hierarchical list ranking comrades against each other? Nothing I can think of off hand - that's what. Rather than go into the whole thing again I'll simply list previous posts on this in the order you should read them if you don't what what on earth is going on. Read these first, second, third, and fourth.
Congratulations to everyone concerned and a special mention will of course go to the very deserved top ten, who are:
- Kitchen Witch, who by (cunningly) writing well, humourously and above all consistently has developed a small blog community around KW. This blog has the absolute honour of being named best green blogger 2006.
- Peter Tatchell
- George Monbiot
- The Past; Present; and Future
- Paul Kingsnorth
- Earthquake Cove
- Life is complicated but beautifully simple
- Caroline Lucas
- Making Waves
But these results are those determined by my application of Iain Dale's original system - and blogs, being what they are very much dominated by personal taste - and therefore highly controversial. It's for that reason that I've set up a poll for the "People's Choice" where you can choose any of the top ten as your personal favourite - a poll I'll allow to run until Midnight of the 6th of December (ie two weeks time).
Hold on, hold on though - what about the other 90? Well, just click here they are all there, just waiting for you.
In the course of doing this task, which was far more time consuming than I'd anticipated, I've come across a number of common problems in different forms. Not just the constant reoccurance of the Son of Moto template but a number of real ABC's of blogging. So I thought I'd offer my services to anyone (on the list or not) who wanted advice on how to improve their blog - and I'd give my opinion. You are of course at liberty to ask anyone in the world - I'm no expert - but I am volunteering for the job.
As a favour to me what I'd like you to do is give me something in return. No, not money. I know what a tight bunch you are - what I'd like to know is what you like most about blogging, where *you* think your blog could most improve and where you think *my* blog could most improve. If you'd like to do that please do email me and we'll chat, hopefully bringing the green blogosphere closer together in the process.
