Top 100 UK Blog RSS feeds and OPML file

Martin Belam  by Martin Belam, 26 October 2007

I've never been a big fan of long numbered league tables of bloggers whose main purpose is link-bait, or of using things like Alexa for measuring site popularity with any kind of granular accur...Oh, what's that you say...I'm in this list?

[Changes tune]

I was fascinated this week to see Blogstorm publish a list of "Top 100 UK blogs" which included currybetdotnet

I found myself nestling just below the Biased BBC blog in the list, and slightly above Boris Johnson. I'm guessing that they excluded on purpose any blogs from the mainstream press, as otherwise, judging from the subscriber figures I've written about previously, I would have expected The Guardian's Technology Blog to feature. And I'm in agreement with Rhys that the omission of Diamond Geezer is also curious.

The Blogstorm article simply linked to the front pages of these blogs, which rather missed out on the potential for their list to show me things worth subscribing to in my feed reader of choice, so I've quickly whipped together a list of the RSS feeds of the 100 blogs in the list, along with an OPML file of them all.

(The original list is dynamic, though, so a few of the places may have swapped around and some of the blogs might have changed since I first made this list)

Given that the list covers a diverse range of topics and interests, I'm not sure how useful it would be to subscribe to them all at once in a job lot, but nevertheless, here is the OPML file.

OPML Top 100 UK Blog RSS feeds

Thanks for the link but the F1Fanatic.co.uk RSS feed is actually at this address:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/f1fanatic

Sorry about that - it is fixed now, both in the page and the OPML file

Nice list, very linkbaity, is it working well? ;-)

Meanwhile, I've done something very silly! I've made available an (almost) complete list of the RSS feeds to which I subscribe in my main Google Reader account. It's not a huge number, just a couple of hundred, but Sciencebase regulars might like to check it out here

I deleted a few of the more embarrassing ones that were in there, like Ricky Gervais, Russell Brand, Rush is a Band etc, so you're left with the ubergeek stuff.

Yes, not bad thanks David. Not bad at all.

How's your plan coming along for promoting your Google Reader subscription list? ;-)
