The Top 40 Conservative Blogs For 2009 (Version 4.0)


It’s time for me to rank my favorite blogs for the 4th quarter of 2009.

Do keep in mind that as the quarter has progressed, some blogs have, of course, moved up and others have dropped, based on how often I visit them, how much I like what I see when I get there, how often the blogs are updated, etc., etc. Also, as per usual, do keep in mind that this sort of list changes frequently over time based on a variety of factors. So if a blog didn’t get included, it’s no big deal — it could be on the list next time. Let me also add that there are some very good blogs that I read almost daily, that didn’t make the list. If you see any blogs on there that you’re not familiar with, make sure to check them out.

Here’s the list:

40) Jihad Watch
39) Small Dead Animals
38) Vox Popoli
37) Wizbang!
36) Hugh Hewitt
35) Don Surber
34) The Radio Equalizer

29) Iowahawk
28) Conservative Blog Watch

26) Sweetness & Light
25) Betsy’s Page

6) Ace Of Spades HQ
5) The Corner

3) RedState
2) Newsbusters
1) Hot Air

PS: I decided that in order to be fair, I couldn’t add any of the bloggers who now blog for RWN or Pajamas Media, where I semi-regularly write columns. Be aware that most of these blogs would make the list and all of them are definitely worth checking out. When you find a new blogger you like on RWN, it’s always a good idea to click over to his or her blog and read all of his or her work

Multiplicity II, Starring Janeane Garofalo As Andie MacDowell

During the Bush #43 administration, the left really went to town with their practice of stealing pages from the conservative playbook that they had preceding years.
