  1. Well done sir. HOpe it compensates in some small degree for whatever other misfortunes.

    I don’t get wikio. How does it work? How do I get on its politics rankings?

  2. Thank you.

    Wikio, and you should register yourself here, works by measuring the links to your blog. Initially I was registered in the generic blog category (about 2900th since you ask) and had to send an e-mail just saying, “put me in politics please” and they sorted it all out.

    The more you are linked to, the higher your ranking. And, the higher the ranking of those linking to you, the bigger the boost to your ranking you get. The logic follows that were links go, readers follow. It’s also important that links show that other bloggers care what you think (even if only to mock you, think Tim and Richie), so it weights bloggers opinions more highly I suppose than those of readers.

    Its a cool system but is obviously full of holes. Still good fun.

    For example, The rankings versus readerships can mismatch a little. The Third Estate get about double the daily visits I do yet are now ranked about 10 places below me so its a little demonstrative at best.

    I’d want to know where you’d rank, and how many readers you get, even if the only reason is that I’m nosy.

    And with respect to my non blogging life: Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

    Life’s still a bitch though, ain’t it? And as a 22 year old I reserve the right to blow things out of all proportion.

  3. Thanks a lot for that. Sounds like I need to email them – I registered, then had no idea where I was, at all . . .

    I will desist from attempting wise words on anything else. I melodramatised way way more – thank God the internet did not exist in the early 1990s . . .

    1. Oh, if only you knew Giles. My situation is surprisingly both very multinational and very parochial and a little matrimonial too.

      I sorta wished I had a personal blog to put all this out there, I’ll just have to wait to overtake Iain Dale and then write my autobiography.

    1. Good start, I think… Wikio always takes a month or two to equilibriate on something approaching a proper ranking. You should well be top 100 before April, especially if you keep on like you are.
