Cool Blog Links Top 10 Coolest Blogs

Once upon a time a there was a man with a dream, and that dream was to bring to life a site that would one day link to all the coolest blogs in the blogosphere. That dream, in part came true on December 12th 2008 when Cool Blog Links came to life.  That man just happened to be yours truly and in almost 18 months it’s member base has grown to a whole 19! Yes you have heard right my treasure dream site has 19 members. OK, who the hell is that laughing in that background? Obviously not a member. Could someone please show that person the door, Mitch I reckon you can escort that low life out.

Yes, our member base is low but that doesn’t matter because our members are the best of the best and it’s only a matter of time before we will be beating them back with a stick. :tongue_rolleye_ee:

Seriously folks even with a relatively small member base Cool Blog Links has still obtained a PR3 ranking. As in the past I have decided to reward the top 10 members, that is those members that are currently ranking in the top 10 at the time of writing this post. The first such post was published on March 29th 2009 and the second on November 11th 2009.

As you would expect the top 10 blogs change as time goes by and so without further ado I would like to present the latest top 10 cool blogs.

  1. Tech18.com: Although a relatively new comer this blog has shot to the top.  It’s latest post, HTML5: What? Why? How and When discusses the enhancements to HTML that will may or may not be the bees knees in HTML? See what Sunil Jain has to say about it all.
  2. So, You Want To Be A Banquet Manager: Was the top dog for quite some time but is now running second. This blog is full of entertaining stories about what being a banquet manager is all about. It’s latest post, Hey Sales Chick – Breakfast is Only For An Hour and a Half! is just a sample of the interesting things that can happen when working in the hospitality industry.
  3. I’m Just Sharing: Yep, my good mate Mitch has shot to no.3 overtaking his good mate in the process. His blog covers many topics and is always a great read. It seems that one of his latest posts, My Gripe With WordPress.com Blogs outlays some of their short comings.
  4. Work From Home Business Blog: Peter Lee has been in the top 10 since day one and that’s not at all surprising seeing how he’s always writing great content in his quest to keep his readers up to date such as helping those who Wanna Know What Google Sees In Your Blog’s Home Page?
  5. The Shadows Of My Mind: If my memory serves me Lindsay is a fellow Aussie blogger and his blog also covers a wide range of topics. His post on Final Fantasy VIII – First Impressions also talks about his first encounter with the latest 3D movies.
  6. What A Load Of Bullshit:  Yep this is one of mine and it does really well in the SERPS.
  7. Wassup Blog: Yeah, there’s no need to tell you anything about this blog :drunk_tb:
  8. Scenic Adelaide: Yep another of my blogs. Imagine that, I have three blogs in the top 10. Not happy with that? The why not join and try to knock me off my perch.?
  9. Anne On Life: Anne is the one of two women to make it to the top 10. Way to go Anne. Anne can be hormonal at times as she admits in her post Every Child Needs Love, but then what woman isn’t? Only kidding ladies, you know I loves ya all.
  10. Expressive World:  Another lovely female blogger, Ana, owns this site and her blog is all about expression. She loves to post beautiful photos each one accompanied by something meaningful. I particularly like the Your Beauty In This World.

I’ve decided to make this post sticky for awhile so that those listed in this post will get the most benefit from being on the front page of a PR4 blog. Naturally I am hoping that this post will attract more members and there are advantages other than be listed on future Top 10 updates such as being listed on a PR 3 site, not to mention the added traffic that Cool Blog Links will send your way. I’ve just checked my Google Analytic and I was surprised to find that it is the number one source of traffic to this blog, no.2 being Twitter.

  4. loadofbullshit.com haha. Now that could be a good conversation starter with the right people, telling them you own that.

    1. Not as good as my Sex Aids site. :devil_tb: :rolleyes_tb: :lol_ee:

      1. Ah yes, you are correct, but I suppose you would have to be careful who you mention it to. :cool_wp:


  5. Twitter:
    Glad to see I finally moved up on the list. Now to chase those other two down. lol


      1. Twitter:
        Bring it on, Sire; you’ll be as successful as you are in our chess games. Did you see my post on the chess sites?

  6. Dude! I was SO thinking about this blog bunch a few days ago, reminding myself I had yet to get back over to Cool BLog Links and res-start my registration. Well, firstly have to make my banner the right size for Ultimate Presentation and make that URL for it — thanks for that tip on how to do that, btw…

    So when I get my assets in gear I may be number 20 on your list! Or 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, etc — if this post has new linkers beating down the doors.

    But I can’t do it now. I’m at the library drinking beer. A long story! :)

    1. Can’t wait to have you on the Cool Blog team Jannie, we could do with a few more fair maidens. Too many blokes on board makes the whole thing a little uneven.

  7. Wouldn’t accept my password when trying to join

    1. Did it give you an error message Peter?

  8. Thanks for the list. I only have heard of tech18.com (which I really like) before so I have a few to check out today. Its not like I really wanted to cut the grass anyway.

    Have a great day!

  9. I am a big fan for Peter Lee’s work at home business blog. He is one helpful guy. I have learned many things about blogging from him.

    1. Thanks Chandan for the kind words. Good to see you here and hope to see you join too if you haven’t done so.

  10. I particularly like The Shadows of my Mind and What A Load Of Bullshit

    Thanks for sharing this list!

    1. Thanks Julius! I hope you will visit my blog again – Lindsay (The Shadows of my Mind).

  11. Hello stranger,

    It’s been quite sometime. How are you doing? though i can see you’re having fun with your posts as usual.

    Anyway, i visited CoolBlogLinks, clicked on the join button and then asked myself, “what’s this really all about? what i do i do to join, move up, and what are its benefits?”. I couldn’t find all the answers so instead of joining i just bookmarked the site for later.

    Can you clear this up?

    1. As you would have seen from the site it is a blog directory so by joining you get another link to your blog. At the moment it’s a PR3 site so you also get a bit of PR juice if you’re that way inclined.

      Once you join you get emailed a code that you are required to put on your blog. That code will display a small icon which allows others to vote for your blog. More importantly it also collects statistics such as the amount of daily visits you get. The top 10 blogs listed in this post are my busiest members, so to speak.

  12. Thanks Sire for the link love,

    Congrats on having such a great blog here. Each time I visit it, it seems to have grown bigger, better. You definitely deserved the PR3.

    1. That’s OK Peter, I always like to look after others, especially those who join my sites. As to the PR3, that’s probably the last time you visited, now I’m a PR4. :drunk_tb:
      Sire recently posted…How Would You Like To Win An Apple iPad?My Profile

  13. Hey thanks for stopping by my blog today, I really appreciate the comment.

    Yeah a lot of these sites I’m unfamiliar with and will check them out. Very cool that you’re doing something similar to what I’ve done.

    Great post! :)

    1. I do these sort of posts on a regular basis Eric. As bloggers I think it’s a great idea to spread the love whenever we’re able.

      Thanks for linking to this post too, it’s really appreciated. Couldn’t interest you in joining Cool Blog Links now could I?

  14. Most of the blogger is new to me, will check them out. Even heard the site name first time. Thanks for sharing Sire.

    1. Could be because I’ve written about it before. Each time I get a few new members and spread a bit of love so it’s a win win situation.

  15. Hey Sire,
    It’s good to be back.
    How are you?
    I visit from time to time to see how you are doing here.
    It is wonderful to be part of your ‘cool blog links’ as I remember that was one of your greatest ways to grab a group of websites into a useful list. I very much like that idea and I was very pleased and am still very pleased to be part of this website.
    My site is back up now. My hosts were physically transporting their servers to a new location, so that’s why you found my site down the other day.

      1. Thanks so much for the kind words. You are always so encouraging and I’m glad you find meaning in my words and enjoy my photography.
        Look forward to coming back more often now. :)

        1. Welcome back Ana and great to get to “meet” your blog through Sire’s list!

          1. Thank you Kimberly,
            That is very kind of you to welcome me back.
            It is a pleasure to meet you too. Your blog looks real interesting! :)

    1. Hey Colleen, I reckon your blog would look nice on that list. What’s holding you back from joining? Is it because of the icon that needs to be displayed on your blog? Would it make a difference if I made it smaller?

      Just wondering.

      1. We were involved in something similar a few years ago. We (other real estate agents) had a similar idea and we all benefited by increased ranking in our local markets. It was pretty cool Sire, but then Google caught on and penalized us. We lost all rankings for any keyphrase (including our names) for about two months. It really sucked. I’m not saying you are at risk, but whenever there is any kind of reciprocal linking and/or link farm potential, coupled with an increase in search engine rankings, Google takes notice. :(
        Colleen recently posted…Tagaris Summer Concert SeriesMy Profile

        1. Are you sure that was the reason you got penalized? Also it is not a link farm as the definition of a link farm is;

          A link farm is any group of web sites that all hyperlink to every other site in the group

          and it definitely does not do that. Cool Blog Site is different from the normal site index as it only concentrates on blogs and that is beneficial not detrimental and so I can’t see Google penalizing anyone being a member. It certainly hasn’t hurt me any.

          1. Positive on the reason we got the penalty. There was about 25 of us and it became a national real estate news side show. At the time, real estate agents would link to each other through ‘state pages’ After the penalty, we all decided not to do anything close. To read more about it, search, “real estate reciprocal linking penalty” You’ll find many articles on us, chief among them is one Rand Fishkin wrote at SEOMoz.

            Anyway, like I mentioned earlier, you guys are fine. I know if I were to join something like that, some nasty competitor would file a report to Google. If someone at Google was not attentive, they would simply give a penalty. I do not trust Google to be responsible!
            Colleen recently posted…Tagaris Summer Concert SeriesMy Profile

            1. That could be the problem, not only were you linking to a common directory but to each other as well and that would fulfill the link farming criteria.

              As Cool Blog Links is merely a directory linking sites that have something in common I’m sure that it’s members are perfectly safe.

    1. Yep sure are, good job Anne.

  16. I’ve never been much of a blog reader, but it’s a good list you got there. Especially the one about the banquet manager is totally hilarious, haha. Gonna bookmark that one.

  17. My top 10 list would probably have 2-3 webcomic blogs. I like XKCD and QC. I followed Basic-Intructions for some time but I drifted away. Apart from that I guess I will only name TechCrunch as my favorite blog.

  18. Love Sunil’s blogging style and I syndicate his blog on twitter quite a bit. He definitely deserves a good rank!

    How cute that you have another (of many I’m discovering!) pet project! I signed up! Lets play!

    1. Yep, always looking for something new to do. I’ve approved your blog Kimberly. You will get a code in your email that you will need to place on your blog that will keep certain analytic.

      Some people unfortunately don’t want to do it even though it says it’s a requirement of membership. I usually give them a week, a reminder and if it’s still not done I have to delete their entry.

    2. I still consider myself as a newbie Kim , because not much time I get for my blog daily , but also your words really inspire me :D

      Welcome to Coolbloglinks Kim :)
      It’s good to see you there :)

      Thanks for once again listing me Sire :) :D

  19. Congrats on achieving your dream of ultimate blog links! And hey, 19 members is a good, solid number. Thanks for listing your top ten blogs! I’ll be sure to check them out.

    1. Thanks, since this post it grew to almost 40 but I had to delete some because they didn’t install the code on their blogs which was a requirement of membership, even after contacting them.

      Not to worry as I only want members that follow the rules.
      Sire recently posted…Important Link Love That You Should All ReadMy Profile

  20. I was surprised to see that your “What a load of Bullshit Blog ranks higher than this blog. Seeing as “Wassup Blog” has a higher PR

  21. Thank you so much for your little write up, it was very sweet. Made me giggle a little cause I’m actually a “her” instead of a “his”. But it’s ok, I get it quite ofter with my name.

    Best of luck with Cool Blog Links. I will have to give you a bit of a plug in a future post, see if I can help you to 20 quality members :)

    1. So, you’re a sheila? That’s cool, I happen to like shielas :drunk_tb: :lol_ee:

      Thanks for the good wishes, and perhaps your post will push me towards the 30 mark as I already have more than twenty. :wink_ee:
