Introducing the top 100 Thailand blogs

NOTE: Should work fine in all browsers. Tested in FF, IE6 and 7, Safari and Opera.

OK, I’m going to let you in on the project I’ve been working on for the past couple of week’s It’s a list of the top 100 Thailand blogs. I spent a long time compiling this list, searching for active Thailand blogs. Most of the blogs are in English, although a couple are French.

The metric that the list is based on uses a combination of Page Rank, Technorati rank and user votes. The better a blog’s ranks, the higher on the list that blog will appear. However, the user-ranking system plays a central part in determining where a blog ranks. You can vote for each blog, on a scale of one to five.

I’d like for this list to become the definitive resource for finding Thailand blogs. Other lists I found have links to dead blogs or just dead links. My list will be moderated and updated on a regular basis.

At the moment, there are 100 blogs in the list, but the list can actually support an unlimited number of blogs. If your blog ,or a blog you know of, is not listed, simply add your URL. New blogs will be added once a week.

To everyone on the list, who should have received a ping from this post, it would be really cool if you could link back to the top 100. The link is: http://whatismatt.com/top100/

What I’d also like if for people to blog about the list. Ask your readers to vote for your blog, link to the list in your sidebar, tell people about it in comments, whatever. The more traffic the list has, the more traffic the blogs will receive and the more beneficial the whole thing will be to everybody.

This is actually the second version of the top 100. The first version I made looked horrible and wasn’t even in my WordPress template. I think it looks pretty decent now.

Updates to come in the future include:

  • Incorporating Alexa rank into the metric (I need to upgrade my hosting to do this).
  • An active widget that bloggers can take and display their position in the top 100 (I need help with the coding for this).

So, tell me what you think, tell me what you’d like improved. Contact me if you have any queries or refer to the top 100 FAQ. Add your URL if your blog is not listed.

Forgive me if I don't post much over the next couple of days. I'm exhausted after updating my theme and working on the top 100 Thailand blogs.

  1. All right I'll do one end of the week when I'm adding new blogs. These cron job cost me $0.10 every time, so I can't do them too often. (kidding)

  2. Hi again. I just saw that a Thai woman blogger has been ranked 18th in the Guardian's "50 most powerful blogs" list. She's from Bangkok, and writes a lot about Thai food, but doesn't now reside in Thailand. Does that count?

    Anyway, here's the link: http://chezpim.typepad.com

  4. I've added my blog to the list and hopefully it will be visible soon. It's great to see a decent archive of Thailand blogs, you're right in saying that most are full of dead blogs or broken links.

  5. Someones been busy! Maybe you can stipulate that blogs not updated for more than one month drop off the list? Maybe this can also be the start of Thailands first blog awards? The possibilities are endless so just let me know if you need any help or support. Well done
    Thanks
