A left-handed blog about writing, the Universe, and everything.
Way off topic. I just barely discovered your other site, BNN, since I know little about the mysteries of the internets. Nevertheless, I was pleased and appalled when I hit the eighth most influential liberal blogger in the state (currently ten).Pleased for vanity and appalled that an 80 hour a week oilfield truck driver would rate so high--meaning the bar must be low.Still, like a crack whore I check BNN to check the ratings and have become familiar with some of the other posters who are "alleged" heavy hitters in Oklahoma.A small critique here, but lot's of the "most influential" merely cut and paste--very little actual writing is done. I note your ranking system is proprietary, to prevent sandbagging the system, but a cut and paster is a braindead sonofabitch and a sorry excuse for a blogger. That is just shit spewing out and not adding to the sound and fury f the political diametric.Further, I would surmise, that a lot of this is on autopilot and requires little babysitting on your part. Just a minor note from my part, quantity does note equate with quality, or "influence."Not that I feel i have any influence at all, but my meagre attempts in the face of a massive realworld workload should not be diminished by mindless robotronic cut and pasters.Thanks for listening to my rant. Thank you for BNN and giving me a goal. Help if you can.
Actually, I don't control or run BNN, and I don't have anything to do with the ratings system. I'm just the Oklahoma editor. The guy who actually owns the site is a guy named Dave.
