Number 215 with a bullet

Feedster have come up with a Top 500 blogs list, in response to Jason Calacanis’ challenge. I make the charts at number 215. Even though charts are elitist and all that, it’s cool to see my blog up there. Maybe charts are only elitist when I’m not on them? But reality check: as number 220 (hee hee) SiliconBeat wrote: “Actually, we knew if someone made a list long enough we could eventually worm our way on to it.” Too true.

Feedster honchos Scott Rafer and Scott Johnson have both posted about the list. And the press release has good background, despite a howler in the first sentence: “Today, Feedster launched the FEEDSTER Top 500, a ranking of the most interesting and important blogs in the US.” Unless they’re counting me as an employee already and will sponsor my green card (in which case I accept!), my blog is based in New Zealand.

It appears there are already issues with the list – one commenter in Jason Calacanis’ post pointed out that uber-blogger Jason Kottke is not on the list! There are a couple of others not there, who I would’ve expected to see. And people on Blogger and Radio Userland are missing, or ranked lower than they should be because of their URLs. Seems a bit unfair, because I follow quite a few such blogs.

Oh well, the 215th best blogger in the US can’t be expected to worry about such trifling issues…
