Agree, its a great list of top blogs making quality content.
ty for this great list :)
i knew most of these blogs, but now i have some new blogs to add to my rss reader.
great list, thanks.
Chris – you just listed down my “favorites” RSS feed! Great minds think alike? In any event, thanks for including Six Revisions on the list (and at the #3 spot, woot!).
If I were to add to this, I’d add Soh Tanaka’s blog – he constantly produces unique tutorials on jQuery that web designers can easily follow along with.
LOL! Soh Tanaka’s blog is already on the list. :)
Wow thanks for this collection! I haven’t subscribed to a lot of these so I’ll have to add them to my RSS feed reader.
Nice compilation here. Tough to keep up with all of them! :0)
thanks! but most of them are in my rss reader already, next time please add more unindustrialized and personal blogs to the list, like soh tanaka’s and design informers’ :)
Thanks for this great list! I’m a regular reader of most of these blogs and my list would have looked very similar. Still I found a few new blogs that I need to investigate ;)
I Hope to be on this list very soon. Have always used all of these maybe apart from Pro Blog Design.
Must admit I do not like 1stwebdesigners logo that much at the moment.
Thanks for including WDL in this list of great web design blogs, and a big thanks for putting it at the #2 spot. :)
Great list. I check most of those, but there are a few I forget to check regularly.
Great feature! Some of these are favs and others I obviously need to become better acquainted with. Thanks!
Thanks for the list. I was aware of 6 of the listed sites. The remaining ones go on my feedly right away.
Nice list. Thanks.
All of them are already in my Google Reader.. . :)
Great list of webdesign blogs.. I learned a lot from above listed blogs..
Thanks for this great list and for including WDD.
Btw, I’d have put Line25 much higher in the list, you’re too modest! :)
Thanks for sharing these & Great Job on Line25. I have to visit daily: Smashingmag (like 4 times a day), WDL, WDD, Vandelaydesign/blog, Noupe and have started coming across 24ways and 1st webdeisgner recently. Another great site that I visit daily and did not see on the list is http://www.tripwiremagazine.com. Keep up the great work!
Like designinformer said i visite almost of them as well :D Nice list!!
These are great, but my productivity will probably suffer!! Thanks!!
Nice list :-)
Great list Chris.
Most of these are already on my RSS reader, always excited to see new content from them.
A few of these I need to add.
Nice, too much content here though, ow am i supposed to get any work done :) Well done From The Couch
So great list. Thanks
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.
Great List! Nice to see I follow the right ones. I din’t now 2-3 anyhow.
Awesome list, these truly are some of the better blogs out there, I’m surprised you didn’t plug your other blog.
i really like to read and learn from famous bloggers for better work for my visitors and readers. thanks
Great list of blogs here Chris. I visit most of these sites daily.
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 ;) .
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! :-)
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.
