In my last entry, I offered part 1 of a 2-part entry on CFEclipse bloggers (bloggers who have written about CFEclipse). In that list, I showed only those (45) bloggers who have dedicated a specific category or tag to CFEclipse (or Eclipse, if an otherwise CF-oriented blog).
Again, the list is sorted in approximately descending order by number of entries I found they had done on CFEclipse (as of today). And as I said before, while many of the entries are just news (like announcing a new release, etc.), some are useful tips from a wide range of developers (and the typical arguments for and against CFE).
How did I find the bloggers and their CFE content?
To find these entries, and those in part 1, I did a google search on CFEclipse and browsed through the first few hundred entries to find any bloggers who had done something on CFE. If they had at least one meaningful entry, I added them to the list (and put them in the list in part 1 if they offered a CFE category).
I then also ran the 2 lists by Mark Drew to ask him if he thought I'd forgotten anyone. Fortunately, I had not.
How I got a URL for you to find their content, easily
Just as the bloggers in part 1 offered CFE-specific categories (and therefore a single URL to find their CFE content), I wanted to provide a way for you here also to just click a link and go right to these folks' CFE-specific content. How did I do that?
Most blogs offer a search box, so I tried searching there, and if that resulted in a URL holding the search criteria, I offer it here in the list of URLS below. (In the case of BlogCFC, though it doesn't show the search criteria in the URL by default, you can add it in by hand as &search=cfeclipse, which I've done below.)
Otherwise, for other blogs where I could get no URL to use for searching, I resorted to using Google's nifty "site search" feature to search their blog for any CFEclipse references (and I further added some criteria to find only their blog entries, not RSS feeds, etc, to keep things even with the list in part 1). The only negative with this is that it could find entries where there are simply COMMENTs that mention CFEclipse. That's no good, so I have only shown the number that correlates to the number found by their site search tool. (BTW, note that some of the blogs themselves use google site searching as their means to do search.)
On some sites where there was no search result URL I could offer, I could also find no CFE blog entries with such a Google site search (though the search feature on their site did indeed find some CFE entries). In that case, you'll simply have to search the site yourself to find these entries.
Conversely, some other sites showed far fewer results in their own site search than I found using Google's site search. So I show the Google Search link even if their own site search URL would have found their CFE content.
Finally, since the Google and even some site searches take you to a page where it's not easy to discern the URL for the blogger's site, I am offering their blog URL and then the link to do the search:

Finally, again, I realize that these are not complete lists. I did quite a bit of work to gather them up, but I'm sure I could have left out some great contributors. Please do add any you'd like as comments here.
Hope the above is helpful to all interested in CFE.
Update: On first posting this, I found out that my use of Google to search sites was finding entries where people had merely commented on CFEclipse in a person's blog, among some other issues. That's no good.
Better, though, I learned that for those sites using BlogCFC, I could indeed force it to use search criteria in the URL, so I've revised the list and the rankings since first publication earlier today.
