There are thousands of blogs that are created each day. What was the best blog today might not be the best tomorrow due to competition and changes in search ranking algorithm. Therefore, as much as we do our best to update this blog post, it might not be 100% accurate.
It is important to note that once a blog becomes too popular in America, it is likely to be acquired by any of the tech giants. Ownership changes but the founder(s) will remain to be the founder(s).
