Last week, I told you about how I was adding all the Bloggie nominees to my blog roll, to evaluate and see who should be added long-term. The influx of new posts in my reader has been substantial, and a few of the blogs didn't last a day, but I've narrowed it down now, so I thought I'd share the permanent additions. There are quite a number of them--more than I'd expected. For organizational purposes (and in case you want to go vote), I'm going to list them by Bloggie category. If I didn't keep a blog, that doesn't mean it's bad--there are just some types of blogs I'm not interested in reading very often, or whose writing doesn't resonate with me. I'm also not including the nominees who were already in my feed reader, of which they were several.
