Too Much of a Good Thing

Dare I suggest that the whole concept of a 100 Blogs We Love list is fundamentally misguided. Nobody could love 100 regularly updated blogs, in the sense of following them religiously — you’d run out of time and never get anything done. There’s a big set of blogs that I’m very glad exist because now and again the situation arises when I want to see someone with something smart or witty to say on Subject X and I know that blogs A, B, and C are out there to scratch that itch. But the number of blogs I genuinely love needs to stay relatively small.

At this rate, you might as well just put together a list of 1,000 movies. Oh, wait.
