I had a great half year
Jason says my blog is almost as good as his. I agree! Also, check out all the good sites he mentions. It's quite telling that Jason's done a best links of 2004 post, while none of the traditional media has been savvy enough to do anything more specific than the tried-and-true "our favorite web sites of the year" stories. Real reporting on the web would happen as a much more granular level.
I should mention that I think I've been doing some of my best blogging over on the Professional Network weblog. If you like the blog-related links, you should check out that site. I update there more often than I do here.
