this is a matter of no real consequence to anything in the whole world, except perhaps my poor little palpitating ego needs. really, i am just sort of crowing for friends, so that they will marvel that anyone pays attention, at all. but, yeah, i suppose if you get me into a corner on it, i am pretty flattered.
i have managed to slip into the rarefied atmosphere of a "technorati" top 100 blogs category, at the technorati blog ranking service. i think it pretty neat, even if i don't understand what the rankings mean, or even how i got there.
i remain thoroughly small potatoes.
but, here are screen shots of today's rankings. look quickly, it may not last long. laughing. (and, hasn't. i've gotten pretty high in these things before, but, slip beneath the waves again when traffic dies down.)
i am ranked, this day, number 43 in the "world politics" blog rankings, out of some 19,748 ranked blogs. who knew there were so many. i am just out of the top 100 in several other categories, by 11 or 13 places or so. i haven't a clue?
but, i'll accept it.
i have good company in the "world politics" category. no. 36 spot is occuppied by "jihad watch." "gates of vienna" comes in at number 27. "yid with lid" at no. 21. at slot number 20 is "joshuapundit." at position no. 13 in today's ranking is "atlasshrugs," hosted by the indomitable pamela geller. "sultan knish" sits at a very cool no. 5 ranking.
in "u.s. politics" i sit in spot no. 111, and i reside for this day at no. 113 in "politics" generally.
i've been higher, i've been lower, and it sort of goes with the ebb and flow of things attracting my interest for 5 or 6 days, and getting some posts that are read. odd, that, ... , don't you think.

p.s. now, i am gonna look at the sports scores on espn.
here are links to today's rankings. look quickly, if you are a mind to, because i won't be there long. (i tried to import screen shots into typepad, but, the typepad editor would not recognize them. who knows?) so, if you wanna see them, go there quickly, because they will be gone, and soon.
p.s.s. i am down to # 44 in "world" politics even as i have composed this, up to no. 109 in "u.s. politics." in the last 5 minutes. these things are volatile.
