SF bloggers.

A friend asked if I could name a few San Francisco-based bloggers. It was harder than I expected, though there are certainly a few. Here’s an off-the-top-of-my-head list of bloggers I know of, in and around San Francisco:

Craig Newmark

Valleywag (a flagrantly commercial effort to capitalize on a particular region, not a human being who happens to live in that region–but what the hell)

Chris Nolan

Tom Foremski

Anil Dash though he’s really just a New Yorker living temporarily in SF

Ben and Mena Trott, founders of Movable Type and Six Apart

Evan Williams, the founder of Blogger

Chris Null

Cooking with Amy

Matt Mullenweg (WordPress founder)

John Battelle (in Sausalito now, but hell, that’s the Bay Area)

Kevin Kelly (Pacifica)

Scot Hacker (somewhere in the Mysterious East Bay)

Seems like bloggers everywhere else are banding together around geography, throwing dinner parties and forming mutual admiration societies. What’s up with SF? Other than a few lame “West Coast Blogger” coffee mugs, we got nothing. This from the town that practically invented blogging.

Am I missing something here? C’mon, all you West Coast bloggers, it’s time to represent!

    Hey Dylan, good point, I’m up for it if you are 🙂

  2. Dylan

    Great to hear from you, Tom. Whaddya say we organize an SF blogger get-together?

    Don’t forget the one and only Mighty Girl! http://mightygirl.com

    Followed at some distance by Bryan Mason and Evany Thomas.

    What about Kos. Isn’t he east bay?

  5. Michael

    Were you looking for well known folks, or just those average joes like me who blab about SF and the surroundings?

  6. Dylan

    Hey, I’m just an average joe! So yeah, average joes too, definitely!

    I’m going to create a list of “SF bloggers” for my sidebar so I can start keeping track of all of us….

  7. Michael

    Very cool. Hope I make the cut. Always like to have more of an audience!

    Does Bernal Heights count as San Francisco? If so, I’m in.
