I noticed a feature on Technorati today — can’t say whether it’s actually new or just new to me — the Top 100.
Taking a long look at this list can be depressing — Kos has 50,000 links? For those of you keeping track at home, that’s exactly 403.7 times more than li’l ol’ Word Munger. Thankfully, I’m cool enough to recognize the top 7 (though the only one I read regularly is BoingBoing). Number 8 I’d never heard of — some kind of blog design site. Boring. Number 9 is a lefty blog I’d also never heard of. From what I can see, for good reason. Number 10 is a foreign MSN Space. Hmmm…. I have no idea what it says, but several of the Top 100 seem similar to this one.
Moving on … Number 13 is the first pure personal blog on the list, an attractive woman who appears to have made a career out of getting fired for keeping a blog.
Number 19 is Think Progress. Maybe I’ve wandered here before, but I don’t think so. This is nicely done — the first top-100 blog that I might consider adding to my blogroll. Good stuff.
Kottke and Fark are shockingly low at 23 and 24. Number 25 is Gawker, which I’ve seen linked but never actually visited. Now I know why. Wonkette is still number 29 without the real Wonkette.
Number 38 is just god-awful. Something is wrong with the world when this reaches 38. That and Number 40 are enough to make me stop this ridiculous venture. No wonder bloggers have such a lousy reputation.
