  49. Brian McDaniel says

    I was also misled by the title when I saw it in my feeds. I already subscribe to every single one of these blogs (including yours), so the implication of “promising”, which leads one to think there may be some new or unknown blogs included, is unfortunately a disappointment. Still, it’s a great list for those that have never heard of any of these blogs, but most of them are pretty well-known.

    • says

      If you are looking more for not so well known design blogs, I shared my RSS feed list some time ago – 250+ RSS Feeds For Every Graphic, Web Designers And Bloggers To Subscribe To

      Sorry to mislead..

      • Brian McDaniel says

        No apologies necessary. And of course I saw that post – you do great work here! I just wanted to let you know the title issue from another perspective. Keep up the GREAT work!

  50. Abdurrahman Gemei says

    When I read the heading of the post on Twitter, I thought this post will include the new blogs that are relatively small but deliver great content and have a promising future. But when I saw Noupe, Smashing Magazine and finally A List Apart among other blogs I realized that I got it wrong. May be the title is misleading?

    It’s a great post, but I thought I could tell you how I thought.

    • says

      Sorry, there are several not so well known blogs, but this list mainly features popular blogs, who have proven their quality already as well as blogs , who are approx one year old – but with really great content.

      Great you did tell what you thought – I got the same thoughts myself, but hoped that title will be understood right..

  51. starr says

    This is a truly great selection. Some excellent sites in this list. Thanks for sharing :)
