Huffington Post is the most influential blog

This morning's Observer lists the 50 most powerful blogs in the world,unfortunately mine is not amongst them.

At the top of their list,the Huffington post,one that has had a number of mentions on this site

the Huffington Post quickly became one of the most influential and popular journals on the web. It recruited professional columnists and celebrity bloggers. It hoovered up traffic. Its launch was a landmark moment in the evolution of the web because it showed that many of the old rules still applied to the new medium: a bit of marketing savvy and deep pockets could go just as far as geek credibility, and get there faster.

Other highlights at No 11,the Drudge report which broke the news embargo on Prince Harry.

Interesting that very few are British based,those that are tend to be concerned primarily with infotainment,at Petite Anglaise which has been in the news recently and a book on the way, andThe offside which needs no explaination

Down at No 50 is copyblogger,a site that is described as

an essential tool for anyone trying to make themselves heard online, whether commenting on a discussion board or putting together a corporate website.
