Total Politics Top Ten Blogs

The polling for the Total Politics top blogs have opened. You can vote by emailing toptenblogs@totalpolitics.com with your top ten: rules can be found here. Be sure, after you vote, to share who you voted for. I voted as follows:

1. Though Cowards Flinch (obviously)

2. Bickerstaffe Record

3. A Very Public Sociologist

4. Enemies of Reason

5. Don Paskini

6. Grimmer Up North

7. Obsolete

8. The Third Estate

9. Rebellion Sucks

10. Chicken Yogurt

There are a few absences and trends which deserve explanation. Firstly, Miljenko’s blog is not on the list; despite some really good essays recently, especially this one on anti-politics which was thought provoking even if it gave some grounds for challenge, I haven’t been following it as often as I should.

Larger sites tend to come further down the list than reflects how much I use them – ChickYog, for example. Two huge blogs, Liberal Conspiracy and Pickled Politics are completely absent even though I use them more than almost any other blog. The reason for this is simple; the smaller blogs deserve a bigger shout out, I think. Everyone will vote for LC – and so they should!

The only potential exception is AVPS, which is actually a very popular blog and ranked highly the last time around. I don’t think any other blog (saving Paul’s Bickerstaffe Record) does quite so much for the discussion of socialist theory and politics on the internet.

So many blogs I couldn’t include, because I only have ten votes; Socialist Unity being an obvious one, the Daily Maybe and Bob from Brockley too. Collectively these form my most read blogs, or the ones I utilize most (e.g. Obsolete’s SepticIsle  for his weekend round-ups). I hope a free link from TCF makes up for it guys!

    The whole team at the Bickerstaffe Record is grateful for vote of confidence of all tat TCF, and hereby promises to be more properly leftwing over the next year, except on the occasions when we need to compromise our beliefs from a mix of cowardice and unenlightenment.
