Upon returning from my holiday (yes, I will bore you with some pictures when the technology gets its act together) I enjoyed catching up with some of the nearly 100 blogs I follow (with differing degrees of keenness it must be said) on Bloglines.com. However, a few blogs have, if I’m to be honest, really rather overblogged themselves and so I’m afraid I won’t be wading through their posts. Here are the worst offenders:
The Top 5 Excessive Bloggers
as counted on my Bloglines list from 23rd July to the present.
5 Problogger (99 posts)
Sorry Darren – you’ve made my top 5 list of excessive bloggers. Actually I will probably be reading back over most of Darren’s writing as the content is superb and invaluable if like me you are writing a blog as part of a business or (less like me) relying on blogs for part of your income. But 99 posts put Problogger in 5th place, narrowly pushing Jordon Cooper from the rankings.
4 We make money not art (99 posts)
This should really be in joint 5th place, but life just isn’t fair like that. Recently featured in my top 5 art blogs, ‘We make money not art’ is nevertheless pushing out posts on wierd and wonderful gadgets and gizmos at a faster rate than I can read when I return from holiday.
3 Tim Worstall (151 posts)
Tim makes it to number 3 with 151 posts during my holiday, that’s about 8 posts a day. This possibly makes him the UK’s greatest overblogger, though there is probably someone out there clicking ‘post’ every twenty minutes just to prove me wrong. Take it easy Tim – have a sit down and some orange squash.
2 Global Voices (200 plus posts)
Tagline: ‘ The world is talking. Are you listening?’ To be fair Global Voices does have quite a large scope, ie the entire world’s blogs. But it has passed the 200 mark at which point Bloglines gives up and goes home to bed and so is officially at number 2 in my chart of excessive bloggers. The world is quite talkative.
1 Titusonenine (200 plus posts)
The good Canon Kendall Harmon is the official No 1 Excessive Blogger and is hereby named and/or shamed as such. He also managed in the two and a half week period to push Bloglines to the limit of exhaustion with rather more than 200 posts. Titusonenine is a continual torrent of Anglican and general religious news stories the reading of which is more or less a fulltime occupation, let alone the writing. But it must be said that Kendall is a great source of information and he’s always been very kind in linking to things when I’ve passed them on, so remains an example to us all. Well, sort of.
So are there any more excessive bloggers out there? The top 2 in my list are way past the 10 posts a day habit, but are there 20 a day bloggers? 30 a day? No, don’t be silly.
