    Excellent breakdown Chris. I’m running through a design process for our website, and sometimes you just need to walk through a list of cool sites to get some inspiration.

    When they write well it’s an added bonus.

    From your list, I find 24 Ways is really clever and always enjoyable.

    Also really enjoyed your last post on usability crimes.


  2. ian says:

    Good list, although I’ve now increased my number of blogs to check out via RSS thus reducing my time to do other things. Damn you! :-)

  3. Marco says:

    Amazing list here, I’ve seen most of them, but some of them are still missing from my RSS list. Great to see so many blogs produce high quality content.

    Thanks a LOT for including Marcofolio here Chris – really appreciate it. I have 2 great upcoming articles lined up this week – stay tuned ;) .

  4. Great list of blogs here Chris. I visit most of these sites daily.

  5. Dzinepress says:

  6. Awesome list, these truly are some of the better blogs out there, I’m surprised you didn’t plug your other blog.

  7. Tocki says:

    Great List! Nice to see I follow the right ones. I din’t now 2-3 anyhow.

  8. Brandon Diaz says:

    Thanks alot for this list, I’ve been trying to get myself into the habit of using RSS readers to ‘digest’ blogs lately, instead of spending2-3 hours browsing sites.

  9. Thibault says:

    So great list. Thanks

  10. Tyron Bache says:

    Nice, too much content here though, ow am i supposed to get any work done :) Well done From The Couch

Another great site that I visit daily and did not see on the list is Keep up the great work!
