Women Bloggers

CNET's top 100 blog list could do better in including more women bloggers.

I should have picked up on this earlier, but am glad that Susan Mernit did. Out of the CNET list of top 100 bloggers, only a handful are women. Susan counts five, but we are on the list, so I count six eight.(Anita Campbell from RFID Weblog and Staci Kramer from paidContent point out that they're on the list "Not that it changes the numbers much, Kramer adds). I agree with Susan, this is an interesting list and though I am glad Blogspotting is on there, it can't be that hard to find good women bloggers....

For the record, the five are Xeni Jardin from BoingBoing, Alice Hill at Real Tech News, Molly E. Holzschlag , Gina Trapani at Lifehacker and Pamela Jones at Groklaw.

Update: It's been suggested that I suggest likely candidates. Err, this is CNET's list, not mine. But since, 43% of all bloggers are women last time Pew checked, it's not hard to come up with a few recommendations in just two minutes:

Rebecca McKinnon
Mary Hodder
Charlene Li
Rocketboom
Debbie Weil
