Time Trip

Three months ago today a very interesting thing happened. The BN (there was no name-change anticipation then) saw the introduction of four new categories. That event, combined with a huge increase in new members, has changed the face of things as they were way back in 2003. Of course, I had not... Sign in to see full entry.

Click Trick

That's what my last post was. I used a misleading headline and lead sentence that indicated I might be answering some questions about my rankings. Than I teased you with the promise of answers to come and threw a ranking in that didn't have enough information to explain what I was ranking. As many... Sign in to see full entry.

Questions, anyone?

Evidently so. I've had a large number of questions lately about where I get my information. Close behind are questions about how to use the information presented in my various rankings and about whether the information has any utility at all. The answers are not easy to explain in a few short words.... Sign in to see full entry.

Way to go bloggers!

This month started off at a snail's pace as far as new blogs are concerned. Add to that the large number of deleted blogs early in the month and it appeared that the BN/Blogit (pick your preference) would fall far short of 500 new blogs (net) for the month. The first seven days of February resulted... Sign in to see full entry.

Top 10 Index of Popularity -- The Whole Thing

As of yesterday morning, this is the complete ranking of categories by Index of Popularity. It varies slightly from the previous list, which was through day before yesterday. For those who are still confused, I call it a Top 10 Index because I use the top 10 blogs in each category. By way of... Sign in to see full entry.

15 Categories

Yup, 15 of the 24 available categories claimed all of the Top 100 spots yesterday. Not only that, 11 of those 15 categories controlled the next 25 spots. Whether its the result of bloggers hungry for rankings or deletions of popular blogs, one can't help but wonder if the diversity of Blogit is... Sign in to see full entry.

Picking up where I left off....

Day before yesterday was another strong gainer in net blogs to the BN, er...the Blogit -- no, that's not right either, blogit all. Sunday was another day of strong gains for Blogit. There was a net gain of 30 blogs for the day which pushed the total for February to +145, and for the year to +859... Sign in to see full entry.

Talk about changes -- the past week has shown it with a vengeance! New bloggers have appeared in droves and have jumped into categories that reflect both their tastes and their desire for attention. Old favorites have disappeared -- some temporarily and others permanently -- for a variety of... Sign in to see full entry.

To delete, or not to delete?

That is the question. Well, not really, but it does have an effect on what members of the BN have available to read. It also comes into play in the various category rankings that I post here. It also comes into play when a member leaves our ranks, voluntarily or by bannishment. Bannisment is final... Sign in to see full entry.

WileyCoyote is one of my favorite bloggers...

and one of my biggest boosters. He is the one BN member who always reads this blog. I know this is true because he always posts a comment just to let me know he stopped by. Reason enough to make me favorably disposed toward him. But only part of the reason I love the guy so much. He's also a helluva... Sign in to see full entry.

Top 10, Middle Six, and the Bottom 8

That is the way the most popular categories aligned themselves in a snapshot ranking taken on the 1st of February, which represented standings as of the last day of January. I say a snapshot because daily changes in such a ranking are not cumulative like increases in net number of blogs. However it... Sign in to see full entry.

Da Boobie & Bannings, Departures & Commercialism

Have I left anything out? Probably. But the subject line above probably covers enough of the latest obsessions on the BN to earn me a couple of extra clicks. I could use them -- not for the ranking which doesn't concern me all that much (except for the ones I post here for general perusal and... Sign in to see full entry.

Several is the answer...

to the question of "How many new blogs (net) may we expect on the last day of January, 2004. Confused? You should have read my last post. I'll pause for a moment while you scroll down to my last post to see what the hell I'm talking about. Pause for a few seconds. Or is that, "Pause for several... Sign in to see full entry.

Minus Four (-4)

That is the evil number to be avoided by the time the BN is updated early Sunday morning. And YES! The BN made it over 700 for the month yesterday. There was a net gain of 32 blogs on Friday which pushed the total net gain for January to 703. That is why the magic number, -4, for today is an evil... Sign in to see full entry.

17 and 29

Those are the magic numbers for the day on the BN, notapoet-style. The net gain in blogs as of this morning was 17, bringing the total to 671 for the month. The other number, 29, represents how many additional blogs the network needs to gain in order to reach a net increase of 700 for the month. I... Sign in to see full entry.

654 Blogs, To Be Precise

Yup, when I ran my promised check this morning (Thursday), the BN had registered a huge net gain of 60 blogs in one day which pushed the net gain in blogs up to 654 for the month. Over 600 was expected. Over 650 surprised the hell out of me. So I did a little bit of checking. Sometimes a blogger... Sign in to see full entry.

600 New Blogs in January

I can't make it official yet because I haven't done the research. Yet I believe its already a fact for a couple of reasons. For one thing, the BN had a net gain of 53 blogs day before yesterday. This brought the net gain in total blogs on the network to 594 for the month, an average of exactly 22... Sign in to see full entry.

1,000 poetry blogs!

To be precise, 1007 as of this morning, 1004 yesterday morning, and exactly 1,000 as of the Saturday morning update. Poetry is the largest single category on the BN by far, and continues to be the fastest growing one for writers. Almost everyone, it seems, fancies themself a poet -- except for good...

216 Blogs!

That is the net increase in blogs on the BN over the last seven days. It works out to almost 31 new blogs a day for an entire week. If projected out for a year, the BN would grow by 11,292 blogs in 2004! Of course, it was a very unusual seven days. Through this morning's update, the BN had a net... Sign in to see full entry.
