456 Berea Street on the top lists

I just wanted to post a thank you to everybody who has mentioned 456 Berea Street on their lists of personal favourite sites/weblogs of 2005. I find it extremely encouraging, and it gives me the energy and enthusiasm I need to keep on writing.

Here are the mentions I am aware of:

Again, thank you! I hope I can keep it up well enough to make it onto next year’s lists.

  1. Just to be cantankerous, I didn’t make a list of my favorite blogs for the year, but if I did you’d be on it. I read every word you write and never miss a post.

    (I did list my favorite singers you never heard of, my anti-best-of-2005 list. I’m not entirely immune to lists.)

    Good for you Roger! Long time reader first time commenter. I feel Sweden need more web folks like you. It’s sometimes embarrasing to see what junk swedish ‘top’ agencies produce in terms of web standards and accessibility. Anyway, keep it up!

  3. Your on my (mind) list too :)

  4. I was pointed to your blog by Artypapers Awards :) .

  5. Congratulations, Roger!

    Thanks everybody!

    Johan: Yes, it is both embarrassing and frustrating to see how the only skills the well-known Swedish agencies are interested in developing are their l33t Flash skillz and finding new ways of annoying visitors.
