OTB has cracked the top 50 for the first time at TTLB, currently ranked #48. (This doesn’t count the brief prominence of Bizarro OTB, which made it to #18.) There has been a lot of volatily in the rankings the last few days as Bear works on getting rid of some bugs in the system, so we’ll see if this is just a fluke.
I’ve also been blogrolled by four more sites:
Thanks to all!
I have now incorporated an inline TrackBack feature, using code via PoliBlog via WizBang via Amish Tech Support via ScriptyGoddess. It makes it easier to see who has linked to OTB posts and “continued the discussion” elsewhere. As an added bonus, it counts as a link on the TTLB Ecosystem and should generate a modest traffic increase for those linking OTB, especially for less established blogs.
Speaking of TTLB, NZ Bear has finally found time to read his e-mail and has removed Bizarro OTB from the Ecosystem, having peaked at #18. I’ll have to content myself with my much less exciting #58, knowing that at least the links are legit.
OTB has been blogrolled by two more sites:
Happy Furry Puppy
Thanks to both!
Kevin Aylward has again moved Wizbang to a new locale, this time with a spiffy new site design and Movable Type. His old URL will host WizbangTech, a blog devoted exclusively to Kevin’s “various blogosphere tech projects,” starting July 1. Adjust your links accordingly.
Bizarro OTB continues to climb the TTLB Ecosystem, having hit #18. At its present rate, it’ll overtake InstaPundit before long if Bear doesn’t remove it. Still not sure how it got added. Meanwhile, OTB Classic is holding steady way down at #65.
OTB has been blogrolled by three sites:
Damn the Man
Jim Rittenhouse’s Website
Vessel of Honour
The last of these, run by long time OTB commentor Mac Swift, has a “guess the book title” caption contest running.
Mark Hasty has left blog*spot and now has a new home for The Bemusement Park, which is no longer The Official Home Page of Destiny Stahl.
Kevin Aylward has put his list of blog*spot defectors on blogrolling and has made them available by RSS feed.
OTB has been blogrolled by:
Carol’s Chaotic Collection of Curiosities and
Thanks to all!
Moe Friedman is celebrating the one year blogiversary of Occam’s Toothbrush.
PoliBlog and Marstonalia are Interesting New Blogs, according to the fine folks at Technorati.
OTB is now one spot above Dave Barry’s Blog on the TTLB Ecosystem.
OTB has been blogrolled at Loco’s Lunacy, a blog run by Phil Coon’s alter ego.
Jay Solo and PoliBlog are moving up the ladder in the TTLB Ecosystem
Solo is up several spots, to the 168th position overall with 123 “details” and PoliBlogger has achieved Marauding Marsupial status. Congrats to both.
Meanwhile, OTB is still firmly ensconsed in the lower ranks of the Playful Primates, holding at 88th overall. It has been added to the blogrolls at three sites, though:
Reductio Ad Absurdum
Thanks to all!
OTB has been blogrolled by two Movable Type weblogs, the cleverly-named One Fine Jay and Dean Esmay at the somewhat less creatively-named Dean’s World.
Dean is inviting anyone who wants to come to his place on July 19th to celebrate his 37th birthday. It’ll be “quite near the Detroit Metro airport, betweeen Detroit and Ann Arbor” and an actual map will follow. It’s a good thing stalkers and freeloaders don’t use the Internet. . . .
Kevin Aylward has outgrown blogspot and moved his weblog Wizbang to his own host and
Movable Type(?) BlogWorks XML. His latest entry is Smart Growth In Loudoun County, VA (Or How To Piss Off All Of The People All Of The Time) – Part I.
Update (11:08): Cam Edwards has linked me, too. And he’s apparently super popular, as he’s facing the prospect of hundreds of dollars a month in bandwidth usage. Indeed, I hate to link him and risk shutting his site down with the provervial straw that broke the bandwidth’s back.
