I read earlier today on Alicia's blog about a ranking of SL blogs. It is something ArminasX Saiman has pulled together and it sounds like it was a lot of work. Major kudos goes to him for attempting this, as well as for putting up with the disgruntled crap that will be flung his way as a result.
The first thing to spring from this collection of blog rankings was the number of active SL blogs out there. ArminasX lists 585. Woh. And I thought my reading list was long. I find it dually a comfort and a worry that there are that many. It's a comfort to feel our small community is actually not so small after all. And it's a worry because I am so obsessive about this sort of thing that I know if I start going through this list I'll add even more to my reading list and I'll find it even harder to fit RL work around SL reading.
The second thing to spring from this collection of blog rankings is that I'm not on it. Hurray! I actually find it quite liberating to not be on the list, strangely. I'm not sure why though. After all I could be the 343rd highest ranked SL blog (just below Digital Knickers) and I'll never know.
But then, looking through the list and reading the multitude of comments I've found I'm not the only one to have been missed off. There are loads that haven't shown up, for whatever reason. I actually find that more disappointing than being missed off the rankings list in the first place. Maybe I just liked to think I was unique but that sheen is now tarnished.
