Something interesting is on the horizon.

Watch this space to find out what. At least it will be interesting to me since I'm doing all of the work. Hopefully, those looking for blogging info, strategies, and rankings will agree. Speaking of rankings...remember that they are only important as an indicator of readership. They also are... Sign in to see full entry.

Twofer Time Again. Or: Another Lost Weekend

Impromtu surprise visits from my grandson, lots of basketball, sleep, command appearances to dine courtesy of my son and grandson, more basketball, a free steak dinner, good company, more sleep.... My weekend blogging didn't stand a chance against the competition. Forgive me, and forgive me again in... Sign in to see full entry.

Thanks, all, for your response to my last post.

You may have noticed that I've quit posting on a daily basis. I'm still doing the data gathering (stats freaks like myself can't help it). I'm just trying to avoid burnout from trying to come up with an interesting way to present rankings that actually change very little from day to day. In the... Sign in to see full entry.

How to Crack the Top 10

Let me qualify this lofty claim a bit. I mean the Top 10 of one of Blogit's 24 different categories. It won't make you rich, but it can help your earnings, boost your ego, and the success can spill over into your other blogs once you earn a reputation as a top blogger in one or more categories. I've... Sign in to see full entry.

Three for the Money

Your click gets extra value this time. Not the twofer I said I might provide, but a threefer that gives you a taste of almost everything I've been doing in these rankings over the past few months. As usual, its running a little later than I anticipated. Duty called yesterday and blogging had to be... Sign in to see full entry.

A day late and a dollar short.

Its always something that interferes with our plans to be industrious and timely. Excuses are legion and so easy to make. As are apologies, if you're willing to be sincere and swallow a little pride. Let's see, why haven't I posted to this blog for two days? The weather was too nice. It got cold too... Sign in to see full entry.

A tie at the top!

I had almost decided not to post until well into the afternoon because I'm still working on some of the details about how to use my different rankings and how I plan to apply them myself. But a tie at #1 in the Top 10 Index of Popularity was just too good to pass up. Both Everything Else and... Sign in to see full entry.

Fast Facts

We're back down to 14 categories making up all of the Top 100. Do not despair, however. Five categories are within easy striking distance, and three more are not too far off. There was another net gain in total blog population on the second, +31. That brings the total for March up to 65 in two days.... Sign in to see full entry.

Gainers and Losers (Not)

They were all gainers last month. The 24 categories of Blogit, that is. I make mention of this because its not always the case. Rarely do I discuss increases in blog population without having to include at least one category that had a net loss. Blogit is alive and well. And growing by leaps and... Sign in to see full entry.

Here we go again!

The system will update before I finish posting this, but I try to deliver on my promises. I just run a little late some times. Aggravating events keep getting in the way. You know, things like buying groceries, paying the bills (and finding the money to pay them with), and the need to sleep at least... Sign in to see full entry.

Glory, Hallelujah! 16 Categories in the Top 100!

We can give most of the credit to a very few,bloggers of bloggers who have, intentionally or not, begun rejuvenating some of our more sluggish categories. Health & Fitness (#98), Pets (#50), Travel (#81), and U. S. (#70) all broke into the Top 100 today. They may not stay there long, but a couple of... Sign in to see full entry.

If this wasn't a leap year

I'd be giving you a run-down on Blogit categories for the month right now. Alas, February's final update is still a few hours away. Instead I'll give you a composite ranking that combines my Index of Popularity with the list of categories in the Top 100. TOP 10 INDEX OF POPULARITY THROUGH 2-28-2004... Sign in to see full entry.

1959 Was a Very Good Year

It was the year I started high school and, more important to me, established myself as a pretty good high school athlete. It was the year I reached my penultimate height in grade school, topped by skipping the eighth grade and pushing me into the high school ranks. It was the year I discovered I was...

Twelve, and holding.

For three days now only twleve categories, the same twelve, have dominated the Top 100. Four days ago Fiction cracked the Top 100 for a day. A Fiction blog moved up to #101 today. Maybe it'll make the Top 100 for a day or two. I hope so. If not Fiction, something, anything, else. The string of... Sign in to see full entry.

What the Blog is going on here?

Have all but a few of us lost all of our sense of adventure? Our desire to scale new mountains? Traverse new rivers and canyons? Are we no longer interested in anything except the familiar and comfortable? A few hours ago I posted a 13-item list in "Notapoet's Needless Lists of Unnecessary Info" in...

Something old, something new...

The Index of Popularity that I devised for Blogit/BN is the something old I'm talking about -- and the something new. Nearly a week ago I put out a teaser about something new in the way I was going to attack the Index, and left it hanging there while I got sidetracked by other matters. Yesterday I...

Then & Now -- The Final Installment

The major time-tripping comes to a halt with this post. As promised, if a little late, here are the rankings of categories by my Index of Popularity for 11-20-2003 and 2-20-2004. These are much more accurate than simply ranking categories by how well represented they are in the Top 100. A same-size... Sign in to see full entry.

There are technical difficulties involved with time travel.

One manifested itself when a post designed to go in "Notapoet's Favorite Foods" ended up right here. I finally managed to get the post "Meatballs," into the Food category. I lost three comments on the post in the process. They are still floating out there somewhere in the time stream. Maybe they'll... Sign in to see full entry.
