'Blogs I Never Miss' in My Feed Reader

First to all greenhorns, A feed reader, is a client software or a Web Service which aggregates syndicated web content such as news headlines, blogs, podcasts, and vlogs in a single location for easy viewing. For more about feed reader, can read it in Wikipedia - Web Feed Aggregrator. I came to know about them when one of my friends - Sreeram introduced me to Google reader and thereafter it has always been a love-love relationship between me and Google reader. It helped me to follow up a lot of blogs, even leading me to be the first commenter in most of the blogs. :) Slowly, It established itself as the first thing that i would open in my computer in the morning.

Now to the five Blogs I would never miss in Google Reader[Not in any particular order. Left out all the friends' blog since i do not want to bring my personal prejudice into this]

1. "How to change the World" by Guy Kawasiki - With the network he has developed, Kawasiki just brings so much value to each of his posts.

2. "Balaji's Thots" by Balaji Balasubramaniam, a California-resident Tamil Indian - His narrative style of writing is great and that too writing about a matter close to my hearts - Tamil Movies - this means i lap up each of his posts. But it is a 'No-Entry' Zone for Non-Tamils.

3. "Kiruba"by Kiruba Shankar - The first person i have come to admire just from reading his posts. As someone who has established himself in the Indian Blogging community, you can learn a lot about blogging & internet from his posts. Regular unconferences and various meetings arranged by him is one of the key reasons "I want to be there" in Chennai.

4. "Digital Inspiration" by Amit Agarwal - Though not all the posts are useful, u get to use atleast a few of them.

5. "Chennaiist - It's all about your city" - Again something I read because of the connections I have with this wonderful city. Thanks to this blog, I get to know more about it than its city dwellers.

As some one who is just six months old into the blogging community, I know i am still missing a lot of other interesting blogs. If u know any, ur suggestions are welcome..

@ BB,
Surely you deserve it.. :). As I said, since the topics u write cater only to a particular group of people, only they could associate with you...
