When you're starting out, blogging can be a lonely affair.
You see others and get inspired to start your own and start putting posts out, documenting hobby logs, composing your thoughts and whatnot to add to the blogosphere, hoping that you're putting out more signal than noise and that your vanity project will be vindicated by acknowledgement and even praise, enough to stroke your ego into continuing to put in the time and work involved.
I follow a lot of blogs. A LOT. It's hard to keep up, which is one of the reasons I'm so thankful for blogrolls, of which I have quite a few over on the right ---> . Still, it's hard to find the time to keep up with them all, and I apologize that I can't comment on or even skim more of them.
But they still deserve some love, or I wouldn't have bothered to follow them in the first place. Maybe you can help! Check them out, see what you like, follow them, comment and so forth. If you're looking for a place to start, I went through and found some little orphan blogs that are working hard but need some attention.
My entirely arbitrary criteria for listing them below were:
- I follow them/they are on my blog rolls, so at least at some point I thought they had redeeming value.
- They've posted in the last two weeks (based on what the blogroll says), so they're fairly active.
- They have some way for me to easily see how many followers they have, like via Google friend connect, and
- Have 50 or fewer followers.
Due to the sheer volume, I'm just going to toss out links instead of making hidden links and short reviews - take a chance!

Also, if you have an up-and-coming blog I may have mised that you'd like to get more eyeballs on and it meets the main criteria (50 or fewer followers already, recent posts) feel free to let us know in the comments!
