Blag's best blogs picks from 2011


So 2011 is already gone...it was a good year, so now it's the time for to continue with a tradition I started 4 years ago with the blog Blag's best blogs picks from 2007.

I can see with hapiness, that each year, better blogs are being done, and it's hard for me not to include them on the list, so it became bigger each year.

Again, I'm not an expert in each field, far from that, the only thing I did, just like previous years, is browse the blogs from each month, and try to select the ones that for me are the best, or simply are hidden gems....blogs with no comments, but that really delivers something important. Hope you like this list -:) And if you're not in it...sorry, but make a huge list like this is a very overwhelming job, so I'm surely missed really nice blogs -:(
