Top 20 political blogs

Your humble Devil would like to point out that young Master Dale is compiling another list of the top 100 political blogs, and this will be published by Harriman House as a Definitive Guide to British Political Blogging.

Instead of compiling them himself, Master Dale would like readers to submit their top 20. Obviously, it would be lovely—and, in a moment of naked honesty, thoroughly deserved—for your humble Devil included; it would be even more gratifying to reach a higher position than the last time!
In September Harriman House will publish the 2007 Guide to Political Blogging in the UK. It will contain articles on blogging by some of Britain's leading bloggers, together with a directory of UK political blogs, and a series of Top 20s and Top 10s.

Instead of me picking my Top 100 UK political blogs (as I did last year) I'd like fellow bloggers and blog readers to send me their Top 20 UK Political Blogs by email. I'll then compile the Top 100 from those that you send in. Just order them from 1 to 20. Your top blog gets 20 points and your twentieth gets 1 point.

The deadline for submitting your Top 20 to me is August 15th. Please email me your list to iain AT iaindale DOT com and type Top 20 in the subejct line. Or you can of course leave your Top 20 in the Comments on this post. UPDATE: You don't have to send 20, but try to do 10 as a minimum.

I always think that it is a good thing to keep pushing blogs in the more traditional media so, please, do submit your list...

So you are going to compile the list of top 20 bloggers at a time that will distract you from your 30th birthday? Sad to be that old isn't it?

What if some of us don't read 20 UK political blogs? My daily reading consists of you, Mr E, Terry (of course), RWN and IMAO.

1. DK
2. Mr E,
3. Biased BBC
4. RfS (Second Row as always)
5. A Tangled Web
6. Rotty Pup
7. House of Dumb
8. RWN (would be No1 but not in the UK)
10. USS Neverdock

The numbers 5 - 10 can be re-numbered to compensate for self promotion.

I voted for you DK as the second best blog of 2007 (behind the awesome TerryWatch fisk blog).
