A couple of days ago I joined BlogTopSites, a place that rates blogs on the number of visits and pageloads.
Once every so often they re-set the counters, which is wonderful, because if a blog stops attracting people (or just plain stops) then it doesn't sit up at the top of the list, waiting to have its stats overtaken.
We are a couple of hours into day one of a new cycle - there are 1,266 blogs registered as Personal, and just now I am at No 86 in the rankings!
I have no idea how long that will last, I doubt very long at all, because my UK hits come early in the US day - we are five hours ahead. I also know, comparing myself to others that I already link to, on other measuring systems, that my success has to be due in no small part to the limited number of blogs registered so far.
So what, its a gold star, a house point, and I like them!
Anyhoo - I thoroughly recommend joining - but if that's not your cup of tea then you could always just click on the button in my sidebar (looks like this:) and rate my blog? You could, couldn't you? Tell me in the comments if you do, and I will come over to your blog and sing your praises. Honest.
I'm having a 'tickled pink' moment.
