Thanks to Juanolo for saying I
should do another top 5 bloggers. Hope you guys enjoy it.
When you think of bloggers, you think of people that just write to write, blog
to have something for people to read, etc.
When you think of blogs and bloggers, you think of social media. All of
these things can be true depending on what your definition of blogs and
bloggers consist of.
My personal definition of a blogger is someone who informs, makes you think
about a topic in a different way, or someone who just breathes new life into
what some may consider a tired, or overly discussed topic(s).
The following people I would consider being my personal "Top 5"
bloggers in the GIO community.
What can I say? This guy has a way of giving you information like no
other. His blogs make you think, they make you laugh at times; he has a
way of provoking conversation in a way that others can only dream about.
Trenchmace, where do I begin? Trench
has a way of being thought provoking without even knowing it. The way that he puts his blogs together are
uniquely creative; they are not just haphazardly thrown together. His
subject matter is always something that leaves room for commentary that leads
usually leads to further discussion.
what to say about Kyle that hasn't been said by others in the GIO community. This guy is an exceptional blogger. Like most on the GI site he needs to post
more blogs out like the ones that he produces.
If there was a blog writer' HOF he and Saint would be first ballot
His blogs are thought provoking. Even though he doesn't blog much, the few
times that he does blog it leaves you wanting more from this creative mind.
The last person I had some
trouble coming up with. These people that I have included thus far have
played an integral part in the blogger that I am working to become.
John Wrek, I am having trouble trying to find
words to describe this great blogger.
Words can't express the quality, content, and thought that goes into his
blogs. The thought, content, etc. that goes into his blogs is unmatched by
most. The quality of writing is along
the writers' equivalent of Geoffrey Chaucer. Yes, you read that right. His words just flow off the page without effort
but with an ease that most of us have a hard time doing. I hope one day to come
close to his level and style of writing.
last two people deserve an honorable mention.
The blogs that they write are good; are not in my humble opinion to the quality
of the previously mentioned bloggers.
That's not to put them down. What
they offer is unique in its own way & their thoughts and comments that they
leave are thought provoking; at times leave you wondering in what direction you
should continue the conversation with them.
blogs that he writes are unique because they come from a male
perspective. It's always refreshing to
see something that makes you think in regards to that other side of the
coin. We need more bloggers like him in
the GIO community and within the ranks of creative journalism too.
