We all love lists. They're a great starting point for long rambling arguments and "I can't believe X isn't on it" type rants. That's why it's nice to see AskMen UK publishing a list of who they have found to be the 10 most influential beer bloggers (http://uk.askmen.com/entertainment/entertainment-news_150/175_the-influencer-10-beer-blogs-men-should-follow.html). It's even nicer that I'm included, even if I did only make page 3 and, and wasn't credited with being the BGBW Writer of the Year 2008.

I think it's a fairly representative list on all the various takes that beer blogging has to offer. I'm particularly pleased to see Shut Up About Barclay Perkins (http://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/) and Tandleman (http://tandlemanbeerblog.blogspot.com/) included, demonstrating that neither age nor eccentricity* are barriers to fame and (lack of) fortune in the blogosphere. I'm surprised and a bit saddened that Zythophile (http://forums.pubsgalore.co.uk/zythophile.wordpress.com) and Brewing Reality (http://forums.pubsgalore.co.uk/brewingreality.blogspot.com) are missing, but there we are, that's lists for you.

Should you wish to mention any odd omissions or inclusions, why not do it below?

*this is that dangerous beast, written internet irony. For the avoidance of doubt, it's meant to be funny by way of gentle joshing.https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/72277889156220824-4123667536896921022?l=thebeerboy.blogspot.com
