What's a non-remarkable progressive blogger to do?

some blogorific stats

A lover of statistics as I am, here's a couple that I threw together from said pdf of rankings...

Out of the top 10 bloggers, 9 are men. Wonkette comes in at #10. This blog is also the only female-run blog out of the top 20 blogs.

Also, Wonkette's "area of focus" is listed as "gossip." Obviously, that's why she made the top 10 anyway -- couldn't be because she focuses on politics or the world around her or anything. Just a little gossip there at number 10, boys, nothing to actually pay attention to...

And a testament to the fear of feminism/"women's issues" taking over Dem/progressive politics: only 5 of the 104 blogs listed (yes, I went through and counted them) have "feminism" listed as one of their "areas of focus." I saw a few, like Pandagon, that I would've classified as focusing on feminism as well, but the fact is that the chart didn't list them as such.

And then, of course, only two of these 104 have "LGBT Issues" listed as one of their "areas of focus." I know that more sites than this comment pretty extensively on lgbqt stuff, but they only listed 2. Wouldn't want "gay issues" to take over the "important stuff" either, you know.

Numbers are revealing

Still, it's a darn sight better than the Techno-not-i 100, a celebration of testosterone at its finest.

I should add

Thanks for crunching the charts.
