What are the top 20 Portland blogs?

Where are all of these Portland bloggers blogs?I was digging around on PostRank after reading a great post on the PostRank Newsroom by my favorite Vice President of a Blog, Marshall Kirkpatrick. And that digging lead me to a little gem: the list of the top blogs in Portland, Oregon.

So who’s currently in the top 20? I’m glad you asked.

Here’s how the top 20 blogs in Portland are looking this week:

  1. KATU
  2. Jack Bog’s Blog
  3. Blazers Blog – OregonLive.com
  4. KGW.com Local News
  5. Our PDX
  6. The Portland Tribune – News
  7. Dave Knows: Portland
  8. PORTLAND NEWS – Google Blog Search
  9. Trail Post – A Portland Trail…
  10. Around the Sun
  11. msnbc.com: KGW
  12. Portland Transport
  13. Front Porch – Portland Real Estate
  14. KATU – Sports – Local Sports
  15. Portland Acupuncture Blog
  16. Asheville NC concerts [WTF?]
  17. Portland News
  18. About.com Portland, OR
  19. Metroblogging Portland
  20. The Portland Tribune – Jaynes

Wait a second. Those are actually feeds. (But I knew if I put “feeds” in the headline you probably wouldn’t read this.) So let’s whittle down the list to actual blogs:

  1. Jack Bog’s Blog
  2. Blazers Blog – OregonLive.com
  3. Our PDX
  4. Dave Knows: Portland
  5. Trail Post
  6. Around the Sun
  7. Portland Transport
  8. Front Porch – Portland Real Estate
  9. Portland Acupuncture Blog
  10. Metroblogging Portland

Okay. So that’s more like it.

But then again. No offense to those on the list, but for as vibrant of a blogging community as we have—I mean, here’s a smattering of Portland WordPress blogs, alone—that’s a pretty damned anemic list.

So I’m going to go import an OPML file from my feed reader and start tagging those feeds appropriately. If you’re interested in seeing a more representative list of Portland (or any other Oregon or Silicon Forest) blogs on here, I’d suggest you do the same.

It would be really nice to see some more of those awesome Portland blogs I know and love making the list.
