Time has released the top 25 blogs for the year, and to my surprise and dismay my blog was not listed. I thought that my uncanny wit and insight should have put me around spot 17, right above Radosh.net.
Not really. I have no grand plans for this blog. I never have and (hopefully) never will. The problem is that I only want to talk about things that interest me. So this blog will be too random to gain any traction as a specific kind of blog, only the dreaded "personal" category fits. And then my life is too boring, and my professional position too mediocre for people to want to read my blog to get an "insider" look at my life.
So here I am at rank 629,416 according to Technorati, and you know, I couldn't be happier. I have some people read my blog everyday, I have enough time to read all of my comments, and I don't feel the need to post all the time. I am not trying to sell ads so I don't need to capture some section of search terms, and I have a good time doing it all.
Besides, what I am really going for is to be named Time's "Man of the Year"
