The year is winding down and we’re seeing more and more “top 10” type of blog posts being written in the blogosphere. Here’s my list of some of the best top 10 blog posts. Of course, I have written a few of them myself and I’m sure more are coming soon.
These are not in any sort of order, just the order that I’ve been compiling them or came across them:
Wendy talks about the top 10 most influential dads in the blogosphere, and I’m amazed that I’m not on the list. That’s okay, maybe next year. Wendy points to Mark Frauenfelder from BoingBoing, Robert Scoble from Scobleizer, and Guy Kawasaki to name a few.

I was going to try to write this one, but Justin Smith at Inside Facebook beat me to it with their list. Among the top ones are “Facebook launches Platform, intends to become “social operating system””, “Facebook Platform becomes the most viral software distribution system ever”, and “Facebook user base, traffic numbers soar”.
Now this one is funny and I just had to stick this top 10 list in here. Classic. The title says it all: The Top Ten Stupid Criminals of 2007. The Duct Tape Bandit, well, is just funny.
I just have to mention this list because, well, I’m going to be following these in the future…might make some good domain name choices, as well. I wonder if any of those names are taken? Well, I’m sure by the time you read this they’ll be registered. Here’s a few from their list:
— Continued Globalization
— Securing the Extended Enterprise
— Global Greening
— Virtualization and On-demand Computing (a.k.a. Computing as a Service)
The folks at Verizon Business have put their thinking caps on and come up with the Top 10 Hot Trends in Technology for 2008, designed to help CIOs kick the new year, and the start of their fresh resolutions, off with a bang.
And, finally, the Top 10 Most Underappreciated Metrics To Track in 2008. Yes, well, it’s about 2008 but hey, you need to start looking to the future, right?
Rohit Bhargava does a great job of inbound links, direct URL access, and RSS subscribers are underappreciated metrics. Personally, I still think “Organic Keyword Referrals” are still underappreciated–at least the ones that convert.
