Ken Parish at Club Troppo has compiled (with the help of others) an anthology of the best blog posts of 2006. They will be published at the rate of two a day throughout January at Online Opinion. I’m not one of those who sees the blogosphere in some sort of competition with the mainstream media; both forms have their merits and shortcomings. However, I know there’s some great and varied material around the blogoshpere that merits a wider audience, so I recommend you look out for these ‘best of’ posts on Online Opinion. You can comment on any of the pieces there if you feel inclined.
This is not an award ceremony, and like all anthologies, there’ll be different views about what should and shouldn’t have got in. However, the compilers have indulged themselves fleetingly, and totally reasonably, by labelling this post from Barista the ‘people’s choice’ award – for reasons they explain. As the process was done in rather a rush and at a time when some people who may have put forward suggestions were away, they are happy to take suggestions direct from readers, through Online Opinion, for any good posts they may have missed
