When I open up my FeedReader, it is not that uncommon to come across over 1,000 items or more that need to be read. I don’t have the time to read all of those items which is why I either share the link in my link blog to come back to later and to share with others or, I’ll write a blurb about the post and publish it on a blog. At any rate, I figure that the list of blogs I am subscribed to that deals with blogging would make for a good resource of links for your own feedreader. Thus, here is the list of blogs about blogging that I am subscribed to.

(Blogging tips and discussions OPML File)
Thanks heaps for including me in the list, Jeff.
I very much appreciate the vote of confidence.
400 blogs… but what about blog x? You can’t leave out blog x!? Yeah, any time you create a list, there are always things left out, but that’s part of the fun of lists, as if they were all inclusive, they wouldn’t be helpful for any certain group of people.
I feel for you Jeff. Leave out a few blogs and the worlds against you 😉
I bet you your follow up post lists about 400 blogs!!!
The BlogHerald, Problogger Blog Tips and The Blog Bloke are all within a folder called Performancing Must Read as those are the blogs which influence my mind the most and are most likely to get me started on a post.
nice list. Fascinated to know what folder you put Xfep and ProBlogger into! 🙂
Yeah, I am definitely subscribed to Problogger.net It’s just that, as with Xfep, it was in a different folder. I think I’ll create a follow up post which contains a list of blogs about blogging that were suggestions by the people who comment here. Problogger and Xfep will definitely make the next list. Thanks for stopping by Kevin and keep up the great work.
Thanks for the kind words. You’re 100% right, a huge part of the success of BloggingTips is down to the blogs weekly authors.
From the list I would say that BloggerTalks has been one of the surprises lately. It wasn’t updated for a long time but they brought it back this year and it has done well.
Also, no ProBlogger.net?
* Yeah get Xfep.com on there too!
LOL. I’m subscribed to your blog but I think I have it organized in a different folder under blogs that I enjoy. I have my RSS feedreader organized in different folders and there are a few blogs which I could of mentioned but didn’t because they were outside of that folder. But Xfep would make for a nice addition
Hmm… You don’t read my blog eh? Well, I won’t read yours either then. 😛
Yeah, OPML is good stuff, especially when it is filled with awesome sites. It helps if it is organized as well.
Wow Jeff, that OPML file is cool stuff. Thanks for adding that feature.
