We know what you’re thinking:

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the can’t-miss bloggers (covering hedge funds, deb balls, tech and lots more) that need to be on your radar, stat.

It doesn't get better than Levin's Dealbreaker for juicy, irreverent musings on the crap that goes down inside Wall Street banks. She's known to break embarrassing gossip about execs, much of which comes from tipsters within the banking community.

A vet of the tech blogging scene, the founder of immensely popular TechCrunch has had a pulse on startup success stories and Silicon Valley giants alike for years.

Time Warner's Jeff Bewkes Sounding Erratic
"The Analyst" aka Jeffrey Rothstein, Stone Street Advisors --
He's one of the most recognizable figures among Twitter's finance set… while keeping a very low profile (see blocked out eyes, above). His blog, among several at Stone Street Advisors, is opinionated, wonky and,
at times, hilarious. A must-read.
