Top 10 travel blogs of 2010

Here are the top 10 travel blogs of 2010.

1. Gadling
2. Johnny Vagabond
3. Brave New Traveler
4. Airfare Watchdog
5. Consumer Traveler
6. BootsnAll
7. Legal Nomads
8. Everything Everywhere
9. The Middle Seat
10. World Hum

About my methodology: I polled 954 readers, offering a list of 20 nominees, which were chosen based on their visibility and traffic. Although the initial list was subjective, I included a write-in option. Two of the winners — Johnny Vagabond and Legal Nomads — were write-ins.

Full disclosure: I have written for or edited several of these blogs, including Consumer Traveler, of which I was the editor until this January. I felt that excluding every blog I’d been a source for or had written for would be unfair.

Some of you were unhappy with not being part of the initial 20 nominees. I hear you! Next year, I will try to expand the list to include more travel blogs.

By the way, thanks to all of you who nominated this site. I don’t think I deserve to be on this list (strictly speaking, this isn’t a travel blog, but a consumer advocacy site) but if I had included all the write-in votes for, I would have made the top 10. I appreciate your support.

Congratulations to all the winners.
