In the past I have had an aversion to link list posts. I have picked up a large number of blog subscriptions and most of these lists just contain what I have already seen.
Lately my opinion has changed slightly. I am trying to evangelize within the company that I work for. In order to grow awareness of what is going on in the community as a whole I have started sending out emails with a distilled list of blog links. I figure if I have already found what I think are the jewels I can save others the time of filtering the noise.
To some extent I see those that are posting lists of links as trying to do the same thing. The only problem is that if too many people do it the lists become noise themselves.
For my part I think I will just add a couple of the best list bloggers to my blog roll. Look for them soon.
