Swivel Feeds, Group 7

This is an update on my swivel feeds experiment, in which I ask bloggers I read to help me rebuild my reading list by adding 5 of their favorite blogs to the list.  I’ve had a generally positive response so far, and my new reading list is coming together nicely, with a diverse and interesting mix of bloggers.  When the list is complete, I will share it and upload an OPML file for those who are interested.

Here’s how it works.  Every few days I ask a group of 8 of my favorite bloggers to each recommend 5 blogs to add to the list.  I’ll post the recommended blogs in a subsequent update, and add them to my swivel feeds list.  Each update has a list of the recent blog recommendations, followed by the next 8 bloggers who I am asking to add blogs to the list.

Here are the swivel feeds recommendations so far from the sixth group, plus any stragglers from prior groups.  Note that, when possible, I designate blogs by the name of the blogger, because I like to know who I’m talking to.

From Group 6, I haven’t heard from JD Lasica, Jeneane Sessum, Jeremiah Owyang or Jeremy Zawodny.  Jimmy Huen has not yet made his picks.  From Group 5 I haven’t heard from Guy Kawasaki, Henry Blodget, Hugh MacLeod or Jake Ludington.  My general policy is to assume non-participation after 2 weeks.

From Group 4Eric Scalf, Frank Gruber and Fred Wilson did not respond.  All have been dropped from the swivel feeds list.

Now for the next 8 bloggers, who I am asking to add 5 blogs to the list:

John Dvorak:  I enjoy John’s magazine articles greatly.  My Evening Reading segment was inspired by his column.

John Watson:  Father, blogger, software developer.  I love the way he captures universal truths – and sometime just humor – in his conversations with his kids.

Karl Martino:  Another long time read who blogs about new media, software and life in general.

Kate Trgovac:  Kate writes about social media, marketing, Web 2.0 and other interesting topics.

Kevin Briody:  Kevin is a Oregon Ducks fan living in Seattle.  Hopefully he’ll participate even though my Deacons came to his hometown and owned his Ducks in the 2002 Seattle Bowl.

Kevin Hales:  This Kevin is an NC State fan (Wake owns them too), a champion Scrabble player and one of the best writers I know.  I wish he blogged more.

Kevin Maney:  The former USA Today tech columnist has been a regular read of mine for a year or so.  He’s a musician too.

Larry Borsato:  Another long time read who writes on tech, media and all sorts of interesting things.

That’s the seventh group of bloggers I’m asking to help rebuild my reading list.  If you’re willing, please recommend 5 of your favorite blogs to add to the list.  Use the comments, your blog or email, whichever you prefer.
