Shel Holtz

For Immediate Release ranks 245 while my blog, a shel of my former self, ranks 452. This can't be right.


The longer I look at the list, the more I have the feeling it needs some finetuning. Buzzmachine has a good posting with the title Another damned list.


Heh, well, at least it has Dooce on there...


I didn't spot FIR in there, Shel, thanks. I really do think something about this list is out of kilter somewhere. As I said in my post, I just cannot see how my secondary blog can be at #221. It's simply not believable to me. So I question the validity of the list itself.

Elisa Camahort has a terrific post about this list, puts it into excellent perspective:


Jeremy Wright

I'm happy hiding away in the mid 300s ;-)


Heh indeed, Laura!

And I just saw that Feedster has added an 'Errata' to the Top 500 list page:

"No list is perfect and, unfortunately, we managed to not list several prominent blogs that should have been in the August Feedster Top 500. And our guess is that they will be in the September Feedster Top 500. But for right now here they are along with their approximate ranking"


That's probably a good approach, Jeremy. It will no doubt change next month anyway.

But I do wonder - does anybody *really* care about such lists? Is this yet another indicator of the navel-gazing bloggers partake in? I like to think that I don't pay much attention to such things, but here I am with a post about the list...

Scott Rafer

We seem to have you at the right rank with the wrong feed URL. Sorry about that. It should be fixed now.


Scott, thanks for your comment, I appreciate it.

So the rank is for this blog, not the other one. Well, now I am impressed!
