Alltop - My Blog Added to VoIP Blogs Category

Many of you know Guy Kawasaki, and if you don't, you should. He's on my blog roll and I've blogged about him a few times. Guy always has a lot of interesting things on the go - and his books are highly recommended. The latest thing I've come across that he's involved with is Alltop.

What is it? Well, it's another blog aggregation site - in this case, "all the top" blogs and news sources for a variety of categories. Their team picks what they feel are the top blogs in each category, and each is featured in a microsite. For each of the blogs, there's a running feed of the most recent posts. This makes it a pretty convenient place to get all the latest from the top sources within a given topic. Of course the quality is only as good as the blogs they've chosen, but that's no different from any of the other industry blog lists out there.

There are dozens of categories at Alltop, and VoIP is one of them. Alltop launched in March, and they've been adding all kinds of topics, including other topics of interest to me, such as Canada, Hockey and Baseball. I've got a fair bit of exploring to do here - and am sure you'll enjoy poking around too.

The Alltop VoIP microsite launched last week, and I'm pleased to say that my blog has been included. Thanks Guy! It's great to be in this grouping, and there are lots of familiar and worthy blogs there as well, including Andy Abramson, Alec Saunders, Garrett Smith, Tom Keating, Skype Journal, Jajah Blog, along with news sites like VoIP News and Fierce VoIP.

So, if you're not RSS'g these blogs already, Alltop's VoIP site is a pretty good Plan B. Because it's so new I expect to see other blogs added, and if Alltop starts drawing good traffic and feedback, perhaps they'll add some other telecom/tech topics. They do have sites for Gadgets, Social Media and Mobile, so they are on this track already, and perhaps others are in the works. Check it out!
