Swivel Feeds, Final Group

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 very 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 my favorite bloggers to each recommend 5 blogs to add to the list.  I 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 group of bloggers I am asking to add blogs to the list.

Here are the swivel feeds recommendations so far from the ninth 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.

There has been some confusion about who is supposed to recommend what.  The single column list below are the new blogs that got added to the list by the last group of bloggers.  The new list of bloggers I am asking to add blogs to the list is near the bottom of this post.

From Group Nine, I never heard from Mathew Ingram, Nick Carr, Om MalikPC Doctor, Phil Sim, Randy Morin or Rob Barron.  All have been dropped from the swivel feeds list.   My general policy is to assume non-participation after 2 weeks.

Now for the final group of bloggers each of whom I am asking to add 5 blogs to the list:

NEW LIST OF BLOGGERS TO ADD 5 BLOGS TO THE LIST

Robert Gale:  One of the fun brokers, along with Randy Morin.  A must read blog.

Robert Scoble:  Needs no introduction.  Robert has been very friendly and helpful during my blogging experience.

Rogers Cadenhead:  Another Texas guy.  An interesting writer on various topics.

Ron Jeffries:  A long time read.

Sam Huleatt:  Sam writes about social media, startups and other interesting stuff.

Scott Kingery:  Another long time read.

Seth Finkelstein:  Seth and I fought the gatekeeper wars together.  Absolutely one of my favorite bloggers.

Shelley Powers:  I’ve read Shelley’s blog for a long time.  Very smart lady, and a great writer.

Steve Newson:  Another long time blogging pal.

Steve Rubel:  Steve also needs no introduction.  He has been super-helpful to me as I muddle my way through the blogosphere.

Steve Spalding:  A fairly recent read, who has become one of my favorite bloggers.

Steven Streight:  Another long time read, as well as my favorite Twitterer.

Stowe Boyd:  Stowe has an ability to boil issues down to their elements that I find very compelling.  Another long time read.

Susan Getgood:  One of my core blogging pals.

TDavid:  Another of my core blogging pals.

Thomas Hawk:  Along with Paul Lester, the best photographer in the blogosphere (though Richard Querin is gaining on them).  He and I like the same music too.

Tom Morris:  Another long time blogging pal.

Tom Reynolds:  Tom was one of the first A-Listers (though he won’t like being called that) to comment here.  I’ve read his blog forever.

Tony Hung:  A relatively recent addition to my reading list.  Smart guy.  Good writer.

Wally Bangs:  Wally writes as well as anyone I know.  I love his Nashville music scene stuff.

Warner Crocker:  Another core blogging pal.

Zoli Erdos:  Another long time read.

That’s the tenth and final 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 your blog, the comments or email, whichever you prefer.

After this group, I will add my 5 blogs to the list and publish the OPML file.  So get your picks in now!

Swivel Feeds, Group 9

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 very 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 are the swivel feeds recommendations so far from the eighth 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.

There has been some confusion about who is supposed to recommend what.  The single column list below are the new blogs that got added to the list by the last group of bloggers.  The new list of bloggers I am asking to add blogs to the list is near the bottom of this post.

NEW LIST OF BLOGGERS TO ADD 5 BLOGS TO THE LIST

Mathew Ingram: One of my original blogging buddies.

Nick Carr: The Cormac McCarthy of the blogosphere.  I don’t always agree with him, but he can turn a phrase like no other blogger.

OmegaMom: An all around interesting and cool person.

PC Doctor: One of my long-time, every day reads.

Phil Sim: Another of my original blogging buddies.

Pramit Singh: One of my favorite writers on social networking.

Ric Hayman: Another long time blogging pal.

Richard Querin: Yet another of my core blogging buddies.

Rick Mahn: One more of my long-time blogging pals.

That’s the ninth 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 your blog, the comments or email, whichever you prefer.

NEW LIST OF BLOGGERS TO ADD 5 BLOGS TO THE LIST

Marc Canter: Marc is a long time read and the CEO of Broadband Mechanics, the company behind People Aggregator.

Mark Evans: Another long time read who writes about tech, telecom and other interesting issues.

Martin Gordon: One more long time read, who writes about tech, social networks and other interesting stuff.

Matt Moran: A relatively new blog in my feeds list, Matt is into family, tech and music- also my three favorite things.

Michael Parekh: Even though he’s a Tarheel (Go Deacs), I’ve read his blog for a long time.  He writes about lots of tech-related topics.

Mike Seyfang: I met Mike through Dave Wallace, and enjoy both this blog and his podcast.

Niall Kennedy: I started reading Niall when he was at Technorati.  He’s now a web technologist living in San Francisco.

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.

Swivel Feeds, Group 6

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 fifth 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 5 I haven’t heard from Guy Kawasaki, Henry Blodget, Hugh MacLeod, Ian Delaney, Ilker Yoldas or Jake Ludington.  From Group 4 I haven’t heard from Donna Bogatin, Eric Scalf, Frank Gruber or Fred Wilson.  I’m a little discouraged by the lack of response from those groups, but we’ll soldier on.  My general policy is to assume non-participation after 2 weeks.

From Group 3Dave Winer (surprise of surprises) and Doc Searls did not respond.  Both have been dropped from the swivel feeds list, but both get a “sponsor’s exemption” and will remain on my personal reading list.

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

Jay Neely: Jay is a relatively new read for me, but he is spot on when it comes to social networking issues and other tech topics.

JD Lasica: JD writes about citizens’ media and related topics.  I’ve read his blog for quite a while.

Jeff Balke: Jeff is a web developer, musician, photographer and blogger from Houston.

Jeff Pulver: Jeff writes about VOIP and a wide range of other topics.  He’s a very well known blogger.

Jeneane Sessum: Jeneane is one of my long time reads.  She turns a phrase like a great songwriter.  Hopefully, she’ll use her cool new laptop to give me some blog recommendations.

Jeremiah Owyang: Jeremiah writes about Podcasting, video blogging and citizen journalism.  Another long time read.

Jeremy Zawodny: Jeremy writes about blogging, flying and all sorts of tech-related topics.

Jimmy Huen: A new read, Jimmy writes about his experiences as the founder of an internet start-up here in Houston.

That’s the sixth 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.

Swivel Feeds, Group 5

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 great 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 are the swivel feeds recommendations so far from the fourth group, plus a couple of 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 4 I haven’t heard from Donna Bogatin, Eric Scalf, Frank GruberFraser Kelton, Fred Wilson or Greg Hughes.  From Group 3 I haven’t heard from Dave Winer or Doc Searls, and haven’t received any recommendations from David Airey.  My general policy is to assume non-participation after 2 weeks.

From Group 2Bill Liversidge and Dave Rogers did not respond.  Bill has been dropped from the swivel feeds list.  Dave remains on the reading list, because he was recommended as a swivel feed by another participant.

Now for the next 8 bloggers:

Guy Kawasaki: I’ve read Guy’s blog since the day he launched it.  He and I don’t always agree on everything, but I have been consistent in my praise of his blog building abilities.  He only reads 22 or so feeds, so the ones he reads must be pretty good.

Haydn Shaughnessy: Hayden is a tech and new media journalist and a pioneer of social networking engines.

Henry Blodget:  Henry is a former Wall Street analyst, who writes about tech related business.

Hugh MacLeod: Hugh is a working man’s A-Lister, an artist, marketer and blogger.  A long time read.

Ian Delaney: Ian is a London based tech journalist, and another long time read.

Ilker Yoldas: I discovered Ilker’s blog when Mike tagged me in his Thinking Blogger Awards meme.  He blogs on a wide range of interesting topics, and has a talent for encouraging interaction among bloggers.

Jackson Miller: One of my newer blogging buddies and a daily read.

Jake Ludington: A long time read on various tech and media topics.

That’s the fifth 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.

Swivel Feeds, Group 4

From Group 3 I haven’t heard from Dave Winer, David Airey or Doc Searls.  From Group 2 I haven’t heard from Bill LiversidgeCorey Clayton or Dave Rogers.  My general policy is to assume non-participation after 2 weeks.  Craig Newmark elected not to participate.

From Group 1, Amy GahranBen Metcalfe or Ben Werdmuller did not respond and have been dropped from the swivel feeds list.  Amy gets a “sponsor’s exemption,” however, and remains on my reading list.  I think she may still be off the grid.

Now for the next 8 bloggers:

Donna Bogatin:  Until recently, Donna wrote for ZDNet at Digital Markets.  Now she’s on her own at InsiderChatter.com.  One of my long time reads.

Eric Scalf:  My WordPress guru and a great writer on blog building and other topics.

Ethan Johnson:  Another core blogging buddy.  He has this soccer thing going, but at least I have some understanding of soccer.  Unlike Linux and Macs and that sort of thing.

Frank Gruber:  A long time blogging buddy as well.  Frank works for AOL and writes about Web 2.0, technology a
nd
other interesting stuff.

Frank Paynter:  I’ve read Frank’s blog for as long as I’ve been reading blogs.  Highly recommended.

Fraser Kelton:  Fraser is another long-time read.  He has been blogging intermittently lately.  Maybe this will nudge him back to the keyboard.

Fred Wilson:  Fred and I are about the same age, and share a lot of musical interests.  He’s a good, thoughtful writer on a wide range of topics.

Greg Hughes:  Another long time read, Greg is an IT/security guy who writes well about various tech topics.

That’s the fourth 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.
