    I can not list them all, so I have listed the ones that members have linked to on several threads. If you access blogs that you find have a real influence on your opinion, please select 'other' and tell us more about that blog.

    Mainstream media quite often refers to blogs as junk journalism that do not subscribe to basic fact checking - in other words they are merely opinion pieces or click bait. Do you agree?

    I know, I was in jest

    The only tech blog I visit is Dedoimedo, although I regularly read several tech sites that don't fit the blog classification

    Sorry for mangling this. Dedoimedo is one of my favorites. I can not edit it now. :oops:

    I cast "I do not read tech blogs". Simply because I don't have time to do so, but I have Wilders where you smart people bring the most relevant topics and sometimes I have the time to rapid read some threads/posts. Btw thank you all the ones who contribute with that.

    Dedoimedo is my go-to source for info on Linux distros. I check Ask Woody for info about Windows updates and gHacks for news about browsers.

    I finance myself thank you very much :)
    Not as expensive as you might imagine, just requires focus/precision.

    The thread subject is "Do you read Tech Blogs", but the poll question is "Do Tech Blogs influence your opinion?"
    That is not the same, of course.
    I read a number of tech blogs, but I think only one influenced my opinion. That one is Dedoimedo.
