There have been a lot of posts recently about the decision of certain blogs to wipe their blog rolls and start over. This is a decision by the individual blog owner, but it does affect the de-listed blogs also.

Technorati uses links to rank people. That is exactly how they derive their rating system, and Google uses a similar system to rate pages, so the loss of links does alter the “prestige” of a blog.

People look at the Sitemeter counter and announce various milestones being reached, but they aren’t all aware that blogs generally have more readers that Sitemeter counts, because a lot of people subscribe to a blog’s “feed”, and don’t actually visit the site itself. If you have your own site you can look at the site’s statistics to give you an idea of how many visitors you have. It will be more accurate, but it’s a pain. If your blog is on one of the blog hosts, like Blogger, those stats are not available.

General Peter Pace, USMC, Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, needs to read his job description.

Arlo can help. Just listen to Alice’s Restaurant:

…and there, there on the other side, in the middle of the other side, away from everything else on the other side, in parentheses, capital letters, quotated, read the following words:


I went over to the sergeant, said, “Sergeant, you got a lot a damn gall to ask me if I’ve rehabilitated myself, I mean, I mean, I mean that just, I’m sittin’ here on the bench, I mean I’m sittin here on the Group W bench ’cause you want to know if I’m moral enough join the army, burn women, kids, houses and villages after bein’ a litterbug.” He looked at me and said, “Kid, we don’t like your kind, and we’re gonna send your fingerprints off to Washington.”
