I got some shocking news today. Good news, but shocking. And there is obviously a problem with the TTLB Ecosystem. But I'm going to enjoy this while it lasts. I'm hoping that the problem is only at the top. But, for now anyway, this little blog has cracked the Top 100!
That's right. For the time being at least, we're now listed as a Playful Primate. That covers positions 31-100. We're checking in at #99.
Now, I know that once the problems with the Ecosystem ratings are worked out, we might drop. And, even if the problems don't affect this little blog, I'm expecting us to drop anyway. Folks are all the time moving into and checking out of the Top 100. So, today was our day.
Well, if nothing else, we've made the front page of the Ecosystem. I'd have never figured that.
Now, in fairness, this is the ranking based upon front page links from other Ecosystem blogs. That means that a whole bunch of blogs have links to this little blog. Some are BlogRoll listings. Some are links to posts we've done.
And there are enough of them to make us a Top 100 blog.
Not only that, but we're #7 in the Alliance of Free Blogs/Ecosystem. The Alliance blogs are shown in Ecosystem order on Bear's Alliance BlogRoll.
Since we've been near the Top 100 for a while now, this #99 ranking may be for real. And for that, I need to thank some folks. And it's not the regular readers. Now, don't be upset with me. It's not the readers, but the other bloggers that make this happen. Like the Oscars are actors voting on actors, the Ecosystem link rankings are other blogs finding this little blog to be worthwhile.
Thank you. Thank you all.
Looking at the Ecosystem traffic rankings, this blog doesn't rate quite as high. But #853 is nothing to sneeze at. That still means that 365 people come here every day. Or that's the average, anyway.
And, yesterday we crossed the 50,000 threshold. And I thank you.
We have a very respectible showing in the traffic ranking. And I thank you. I thank you all.
You guys are great.
We need to have a party. It might be BYOB, but we'll have one anyway.
Maybe at the Dixie Blogfest in Atlanta on July 8-10.
