The first BritBlog Top of the British Blogs chart is out. It shows this blog in 14th position — the 14th most popular British blog! Err yeah right.
As much as I like to see this blog near the top of a chart such as this, I do find it rather embarassing. It’s not modesty though — it’s that it would give cynics far too much ammunition. “If your blog is in 14th, how rubbish must all the other blogs be?”
Of course, this blog is only the 14th most-read blog to have one of those special little spy-images that lets BritBlog know how many visitors this blog gets. So if you haven’t got one yet, why not grab it now, and see if you can knock me down a place.
Most things that try to measure the “blogosphere” (Technorati et al) break, but BritBlog has been a solid site so far, and this method is so simple enough that it shouldn’t be easy for things to go wrong. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one.
Update: Marky moo comments on his new chart.
