My Take: Top Emerging Blogs in 2008

Janette Toral’s Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs of 2008 Group Writing Project was announced here almost 2 months ago, and the submission deadline is only a few hours away. Here are some of the blogs that I think will only continue to impress in the next 6 months.

Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs of 2008 Group Writing Project

Best Emerging Blogs for 2008

  1. Just Creative Design – Aussie design student Jacob Cass has already gained a terrific reputation by his blog. Stimulating articles, he accomplishes so much because he truly loves what he’s doing.
  2. W Revenue dot com – when you’ve created million-dollar business, people want to hear about it. Scott Wainner’s new blog delivers.
  3. Logo Design Love – Group Writing Projects logo designer David Airey actually launched 2 new sites this year. Wisely using his thousands of existing subscribers as a base, this new blog is already acclaimed by thousands of readers as well.
  4. Traffikd – Likewise, Steven Snell has leveraged his writing with Vandelay Design, Pure Blogging and others to brand himself and his new blog as must-visits for anyone interested in social media.
  5. Anywired – famed freelance blogger Skellie (think, FreelanceSwitch and so many others) also created this blog just-adjacent to her other writing, covering the lifestyle design that Tim Ferriss brought all of our attention to in his Four Hour Work Week.
  6. The Inquisitr – former TechCrunch writer and The Blog Herald creator Duncan Riley launched this new blog about “tech, pop and penguins”.
  7. FreelanceFolder – hot on the heels of the launch of FreelanceSwitch, the other bigboy in the niche, fellow Canadian Jon Phillips launched this useful multi-author freelancer extravaganza.
  8. DailyBits – in late 2007, blog maestro and Building RSS sponsor Daniel Scocco also implemented the “just adjacent” new blog strategy to create this Best Of the Web space for Daniel to blog about things that aren’t necessarily pertinent to DailyBlogTips or DailyWritingTips.
  9. io9 – a recent Gawker Media addition, it’s a heavyweight-to-be in the world of science fiction.
  10. Group Writing Projects – although not so close in topic to my other blog JobMob, this blog is steadily growing as it breaks new ground with an idea that hadn’t ever been done before. Stay tuned to see what’s in store…

  1. Hi Jacob,
    Congratz for being one of the top in the list!
    This blog is really very beneficial for us bloggers, and the owner is very helpful!
    Wish u the best!

  2. Steven – sure thing. I like what you’re doing.

    Janette – thanks for that. I updated the calendar and announcement here. Kudos on a project well run, I’ll have questions soon 🙂

    Jacob – Glad to have you back after vacation. You missed our first gwp, and it was a good one:

    David – I only discovered your blog recently. I think you have a lot of potential but you’re in a very tough, crowded niche. After our conversations, I know you can be a successful blogger (if you keep at it) but you would definitely get a big boost from Yaro’s Blog Mastermind.

  3. Hi Jacob. Kindly advise if you will update and complete your top 10. I’m now making a final list for raffle inclusion.

    Thank you again for all the support.
