By Murray Bourne, 02 Jan 2007

Check out the 500 most popular blogs [no longer available], according to the number of blogrolling.com user links. The top 10 today are:

Lower down the list there are non-blog items as well, like news and search engines.

Over at Bloglines, the story is rather different:

1. Bloglines
2. Slashdot
3. Wired News: Top Stories
4. Dilbert
5. BBC News
7. Boing Boing
10. Scientific American

Anyway, there's a few hours of entertainment for you...

Oh, and speaking of the blogosphere, that term was 5 years old yesterday.

Excellent...was doing a quick google on top blogs and you came up. I guess you have to be happy about the relevance of this particular post. I'm putting together a blog about "bloash". Check out [no longer exists] if you get the chance.

Hey Mark - good luck with your bloash.

Did you consider "blosh"? Seems to that it rolls off the tongue a bit easier.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
