There sure are a lot of blogs out there! Obviously, reading technical blogs is a great way to stay current and learn new things. The problem is, which blogs to read with limited time. If you are reading this, you can see some of the blogs I read in my blogroll. Some of these blogs are from leaders in the industry. Some of them are local developers that I know and respect. If you are like me, I try to start the day off scanning through posts (I use RSS Bandit to aggregate for me). If I take a break from coding during the day I may try to read some more. For some blogs I read only posts that stand out. For others I read almost everything they post. Of course it also depends of course on the type of day I am having.
I am happy to say the my blog has been getting a lot of hits lately. Hopefully that means I have something to offer. It is pretty cool to look at my statistics and see how people found my blog. When someone comes to Schwammy Says via Google or Search.Live.com the search engine sends along search criteria that was used. I love to read through it. I often think that based on what that person was looking for, I may have helped them. Sometimes I look and think, oh well, that person probably didn’t find what they wanted in this blog.
Anyway, what I’d really like to know is…what blogs do you read? Please share your ideas. Marc Ziss turned me on to Sam Gentile’s blog. I started reading it this week and I like his information. It was a great tip.
