It’s that time of year again and everyone seems to be compiling their wildly unscientific and somewhat arbitrary Top Ten Travel Blogger Lists. Not to be left out, I decided to do one of my own, but instead of highlighting individuals, I am highlighting entire lists. Oh, and contrary to the title name, only one of these lists is a true Top Ten List.

1. Flying With Fish Five Travel Blogs You Should Read

Flying with Fish decided to buck the trend of doing the top 10, 50 or 100 and instead gave us his top five travel blogs. While the sites are pretty common, it is a solid list.  BUT, he does lose a few points because he highlighted the travel community on which his site is hosted.

2. Travel Blissful Top South American Travel Blogs

There is no shortage of information in the online travel world. It seems that every nook and cranny of the world has a web site dedicated to it and in tribute to this niche travel writing, Travel Blissful decided to highlight the Top Five South American travel blogs.

3. Top 10 travel blogs of 2010

Christopher Elliott is a famous travel personality and like E.F. Hutton, people listen to his sage advice and opinions. Regardless of his fame the list is a great collection of sites everyone should read.

4. 40 Flightsters You Should Know About

Individuals aren’t the only ones compiling Top Blog lists, several travel related companies have as well. is an innovative airline booking site, which is easily seen through their interesting and engaging blog. In keeping with their social media prowess, this list of 40 Flightsters is a great list to follow. It doesn’t hurt that I’m on it of course.

5. Almost Fearless The Best of 2010: 100 Inspired Travel Blogs

The fine folks at Almost Fearless are expert writers, photographers and bloggers. Their ability to live a life that they have defined for themselves is an inspiration to many, including myself. This year they listed their favorite blogs and even gave readers an easy way to follow them all on Google reader.

6. Got Saga 50 people on Twitter who are inspiration to the travel industry

If you are on Twitter and have any interest in travel, then you are no doubt very familiar with Got Saga. They are prolific tweeters who always share great travel advice and information. This year rather than just highlight blogs, they highlighted their favorite Tweeters. Twitter plays an important role in the travel blogosphere and it’s nice to see a list that highlights these individuals.

7. College Top 150 travel blogs for students

I don’t know anything about this company or why they decided to compile a list of 150 travel bloggers, but they did and it’s a pretty good list. With 150 sites mentioned, you can be sure to find a few that are new to you.

8. flipnomad Top 15 Philippine Travel Blogs

Similar to Travel Blissful’s list of top South American blogs, flipnomad chose a niche group of bloggers to highlight as well – Philippine travel blogs. I have no travel experience in the Philippines and after looking through this list, almost all of the sites were unknown to me. I love finding new travel perspectives and this list does a great job in delivering just that.

9. Fox Rent A Car 50 Best Travel Blogs

Here we have another example of a company I have never heard of assembling their list of top travel blogs. I do have to commend them though for having a blog, engaging in social media and engaging the travel blog universe.

10. Gap Year Escape Top 50 Travel Blogs 2010

We finally made it to #10! I bet you didn’t think I could find Ten Top Ten lists did you? Well last but not least, I want to highlight Gap Year Escape’s travel blog list.
