There are some under-rated blogs that for one reason or another don't get the kind of attention they deserve. Kinda like real life, isn't it ? Or like movies, I mean come on, do you know honestly remember the names of the other guys in the Lagaan team? Ya, ya, you keep seeing them in other movies in other roles. But honestly, what review talks of the talented lot of Akhilendra Mishra, Dayashankar Pandey, Yashpal Sharma, etc. etc. ?
Or hear it from the man himself, Robert Scoble, who says
Are you worried about the elitism of A list jerks like me?
Then FREAKING LINK TO NEW BLOGGERS THAT WE HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT YET!!!
That’s how you take down the A list. Link, baby, link! [via CofC]
Then something started here at Mack Collier's blog, the Viral Garden.
To quote him
Here's the deal: In an effort to bring more link-love to those blogs that I feel aren't getting their due, I've created a small list of blogs below that I've linked to. The idea is to create a meme built around giving link-love to the blogs that deserve it, and hopefully turn Technorati's system of using a blog's # of links to determine its 'authority', on its ear."
This was Mack Collier's list
