The Most-Read Blogs By Venture Capitalists

Fred Wilson is no longer the venture-capital blogging king.

The Union Square Ventures partner, whose firm is an investor in many high-profile web companies including Twitter Inc., is known more to some in the start-up community for the valuable insight he shares on his blog than for the deals he actually makes. For the past couple of years, his site, “A VC,” has consistently drawn the most eyeballs among the dozens of blogs manned by venture capitalists.

But data from web analytics firm Compete shows that Wilson’s blog now ranks second in average monthly uniques. The top spot belongs to Paul Graham, who runs seed-capital firm Y Combinator.

Wilson’s blog averaged 81,483 average monthly unique users in the fourth quarter, down about 19 percent from a year earlier. Graham, meanwhile, saw his readership for “Essays” surge 35 percent to 97,227 uniques. Both blogs are considered must-reads in the start-up community.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
