Saturday Morning Blogroll: By The Numbers

This Saturday Morning Blogroll is dedicated to all the list-makers and numbers gurus out there in WordPressLand:

  • 18: Total number of blogs looked at during my half hour of blog-hopping via the “next blog” key. Would have been more if I hadn’t been interrupted by a six year old who couldn’t find his shoes or his favorite weapon.
  • 5: Number of blogs that were in a language I don’t speak.
  • 5: Number of blogs that were last updated when people were still listening to cassette tapes and believed Ronald Reagan was the worst of all possible presidents.  (My, how things have changed.)
  • 2: Tech blogs that displayed not an ounce of humor or flair. (Note to tech bloggers: it’s okay to have a personality!)
  • 1: Password protected blogs
  • 3: Blogs that should have been password protected and were not. (Note to personal bloggers: If you’re going to go on about your broken heart, how about something other than your favorite song lyrics about broken hearts?)
  • 2: Truly outstanding blogs. The number might have been larger had people updated more often or if I’d been better educated and, for example, learned to speak Mandarin or even Spanish!

So, without further ado, here they are:

Only 2 Rs: For history buffs (in this case, the First World War) and writers, and anyone else who enjoys a well written, literate blog that’s frequently updated. Only 2 Rs is a writer, and a person who’s got great ideas about books. This is one I’ll return to often.

Angry IT Manager: Proof that you can talk about tech subjects in an enlightening and entertaining way.

Have a great weekend all!

    It’s always a pleasure to find a terrific site! Yours was the very first one to come up when I clicked on the “next” button. Makes me think that the quality of blogging on wordpress is pretty high, if a random sample yields results like your site and that of Mr. Angry. Best, BL

    I think Ken said this before but it’s great to have editors with different tastes.

    Keep up the good work.

    I love the “Next Blog” button. I suspect I might waste a good half hour each day using it, telling myself “Just one more… maybe the next one will be the one… ”

    Michael and Ken — Thanks so much for your kind words. I love looking at what people on WordPress are up to and I’m grateful to you, Ken, for giving me a chance to do it. And I must say that the next two commenters, Eoin and Leonard have really interesting blogs. Eoin works in publishing, lives in Ireland and is a witty, intelligent guy — and no, that’s not James Bond in the picture on the blog, it’s Eoin himself. Leonard is doing something remarkable — he’s posting a novel he’s working on and from what I can see it’s fantastic. There are nice drawings with each chapter. And the story — about a woman who runs a boarding house — is just the sort of story I love to read. Cheers to all of you talented, quirky, interesting, inspiring WordPressers! Best, BL

    Wow, thanks for the kind words! I’ve been out of it for a while, but I’m returning to regular blogging and seeing this certainly helped!

    Glad you’re back Mr. IT. It’s good to see you posting again. Best, BL
