Top 10 Gen Y Blogs: October 2009


  • Thanks to everyone who continues to make this list possible every other month. There were over 35 of you that submitted ballots this time around, and I’m confident everyone will find someone new to add to their readers.
  • It could stop there if you want, but I urge you to get to know one another (and introduce yourself to me if we haven’t met), collaborate on projects, explore commonalities, challenge one another, and make some new friends.
  • After you digest the list I’d love for you to stop by the comments section and have a dialogue with me (and others) on blogs you’d like us to consider for December’s list (and why), some of the blogs you’re glad to see make this list, who surprised you, what you think of the newcomers to the list, etc.
  • Feel free to grab the Gen Y Top Blog Badge from Flickr and add it to your blog (with or without a link back to here.
