We Were Number 12!
If you're wondering what the big blue number on the right (well, it was just below our links all week; honest!) represents, it's our "influence" rank in New Jersey according to BlogNetNews. Earlier this week, the NJ blog portal debuted its new weekly Top 20 list ranking New Jersey's Most Influential Political Blogs. While we were pleasantly surprised to have opened at Number 12, we were puzzled as to why the mother of all blogs in this area, Baristanet, was missing. For a discussion of BNN's methodology, look here. At the same time, we were puzzled by accusations that BNN is slanted toward the right. While we're proud of our environmental activism, We try to keep partisan politics to a minimum. Although they may be an endangered species around here, there are still a few local Elephants we like, as well as a few Donkeys who have made @sses of themselves.
[Updated 6/17: ahh, fame is fleeting, This week's revised ranking has bumped EcoRealty, but shot Baristanet up to #6.]
