So last week or so, ArminasX Saiman took on the impressive task of trying to figure out the Technorati rankings of SL blogs and compiling them into a huge list. But after people complained that tons of blogs on the list were dead blogs, and even more blogs were not on the list at all, he decided to compile yet another list. That is NOT a job that I would want to do. Not at ALL.
I came in at #46 on this list of 585 blogs. I'm a little shocked, and happy about it, even though I know that the list is not set in stone and never ever will be set in stone. It would be impossible! I'm right under Botgirl Questi's blog, which is an awesome place to be.
But here's what gets me. He did this just...for nothing, really. Just to see, just for curiosity's sake. He certainly didn't have to update the first list, but he did. ANd yet people are still complaining. People are whining that their blogs aren't higher, or their blogs didn't make it at all, even though they're not widely known and/or did not have a Technorati ranking. It's NOT an exact science!!
I think it's fun to look at the rankings. I know in my mind that they don't really mean anything in the long run, but it's funny to say "Well yes, I'm the 46th most popular blog." LOL!! Don't get all bent out of shape that your blog didn't make it when you don't update much or let anyone know you have a blog. Don't get discouraged that your blog, which you love, is #500 and not #5 like you thought it should be. Just keep doing your thing and having fun with it. That's what blogging should be about anyway. If you don't enjoy it, why do it?
/me goes to make a "I'm 46!" shirt. :-p
