This list is broken into two categories. The first blogs are blogs that are big enough that in all reality, you found me through them. This is just a look into my thinking processes a way of honoring the great bloggers/writers that continue to influence me. The second part of this list are bloggers/writers who are diamonds in the rough of internet traffic. They will certainly be big names because of quality, content or a potent combination of both.  If you think your I should read your website and it belongs here, contact me.
