A Perfect Ten: Yarah Bravo aka Little Miss B - the international hip-hop artist keeps a MySpace blog on which she recently documented hubby DJ Vadim's near-brush with death. via WikiPedia: Bravo (born in Sweden to a Chilean mother and a Brazilian father) is a musician blurring the lines between spoken word, hip-hop, and RnB. Notable appearances include collaborations with French avant-garde emcees TTC and Polish acid jazz duo Skalpel. She's best-known for her appearances on DJ Vadim's USSR—The Art of Listening compilation, and most recently together with Vadim and New York City MC Blu Rum 13 as the group One Self.

Holding it down at #9 - Shoko-Tan: Shoko-tan’s blog. Shōko Nakagawa (中川翔子, Nakagawa Shōko) is another Japanese entertainer turned blogger. Her official blog, Shokotan * Blog, opened in 2004, and by April 2006 it had received a total of 100 million hits. She reportedly racks up 100 million pageviews per month! As one might expect from her personality, there are very many otaku-style entries, and she updates it extremely regularly, perhaps because of a compulsive streak in her personality, or perhaps, as she admitted in an interview, because she uses it as a kind of notepad. In the month of April 2005, there were 600 updates, and on January 28, 2006, there were 70 updates, a record number for a single day. It is likely that she holds the record for the greatest number of blog updates by an idol. She has become known as the "New Queen of the Blog", after the original "Queen of the Blog", Kaori Manabe. Due to her blog's popularity, in September 2005, Koma Books released a compilation of her blog entries, also entitled Shokotan * Blog. Shoko is also known for loving cosplay, and buys up many clothes at auction.

Dropping from #7 last time, Dawn Yang - the way Wendy Cheng tells it on her blog, XiaXue, Dawn Yang or Yeo or whatever she calls herself at the moment performed a bit of virtual identify theft. Dawn became a follower of one Arissa Luna, commenting on the latter's blog, then retreating to go under the knife to try to capture the Luna look... that's a "before and after" snapshot at left...Related Blogs: dawn_wayang's Xanga

Kimberlycun has come a long way, not just a blogger anymore, the Malaysian PR princess, aka Kim Low, continues to crank out top-notch material. She blogs: "Once upon a time, a palm reader said that I was fickle minded and had an innate hunger for power. Duh, I'm a woman, hello? " So, who among you had the BEST YEAR ever? Hands down it's Kimberly as you'll see when you read her farewell 2008 post!

Perhaps the original celebrity "Gossip Girl," Minya Oh, aka Miss Info - Formerly a writer and reporter for BET, Chicago native Miss Info made a name for herself as an on-air radio personality at the New York hip hop and R&B station Hot 97. Whether on radio, on television, or in magazine, Miss. Info is making a blend of wit, news, and good ol' gossip her multi-media trademark. Minya is a regular castmember of VH1's top-rated weekly pop-culture show "Best Week Ever," has appeared on Ego Trip's "Race-o-Rama" series, and launched her own monthly advice column, "Ask Miss Info" in Vibe Magazine. Her first book, the colorful hip hop fashion history book, Bling Bling: Hip Hop's Crown Jewels, is available from Rolling Stone/Hyperion Press.

For print reporters, it's a black-and-white and read all over world: Albany's answer to the "Gossip Girl" - Liz Benjamin is to New York as Michelle Malkin is to the USA: when it comes to politics at the State Capitol, Liz has all the news, views and interviews!

Michelle, ma belle! Who doesn't love a cutie with good looks and a brain to match! Michelle Malkin's chronicles of her take on current events should be mandated daily reading for every schoolkid in America! Catch her on

Holding on to position #3: Chinese actress Xu Jinglei. Xu Jinglei made news when she appeared on Technorati (which has been screwed up ever since it allowed MySpace pages to place in the rankings as "blogs" when they clearly are not, but that's another story, and Technorati remains "broken.") Look for the link to her blog in my sidebar's blogroll.

She owns #2! This French rapper has seen her style copied by Beyonce Knowles! Gen-Si's career is on the right track, and so's her blog! She's talented, gorgeous and has been uploading chronicles of her career in progress, text, pictures, mp3s and videos. Although that busy career keeps her from updating her blog as frequently as she'd like, look for MORE great stuff from Gen-Si in 2009!

The winner and still champion--- Wendeeeeeeeeeee Cheng!
Who could deny XiaXue is the #1 blog and blogger in the whole wide world? If not for the Internet, would the world have ever known her? Probably not. Would she have been on TV and done so many things? Nope. Would she have ever met her Texan boyfriend? Doubtful!
And, by the way: rumours of XiaXue's death were greatly exaggerated. She's Alive and she's at the top of her game!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
