Announcing the Best Of Blog

MeFi Portland, OR MeetupMeFi Portland, OR Meetup by mathowie (cc by-nc-sa)

For the past couple of weeks we've been working on this new Best Of blog for MetaFilter. Jessamyn has been doing a great job posting bits to our sideblog for several years and our favorite posts frequently show up in the podcast (and there's also the Popular page based on user favorites), but I realized hiding little one-sentence posts halfway down the front page of MetaFilter in a tiny sidebar wasn't doing them justice. It seems these days someone involved in a story or highly knowledgeable about a MeFi post or Ask MeFi question pops in to leave some incredible information and I've always wanted a place to better highlight those kinds of things and this is it.

This is the Best Of MetaFilter blog, where we'll continue to highlight everything on the sideblog automatically, but occasionally I'll expand those posts with additional background and photos/videos. Thanks to the Buzzfeed FWD blog for the inspiration and anildash for nudging me to build it. It should be fun, informative, and help you not miss the very best bits of the site, updated just a few times a day. Enjoy!

Highlighting the best bits from the MetaFilter universe

MetaFilter started as a community weblog in 1999, later added question and answers, then music by members, jobs, projects by members, a podcast, and finally an area dedicated to meetups.
