Take That, Technorati!

While it really shouldn’t matter, we bloggers let it bug the hell out of us — those plummeting authority numbers, those digits that make us feel popular in the blogworld. Technorati changed their rating formula so that long-time blogroll position points drop off after twelve months. To fight back (and get Monkey Mucker-like authority rankings), many bloggers are posting their blogrolls.

Today’s my day.

If you haven’t taken the time to click and read from my blogroll, blow off some valuable office hours now and check out these great writers. There are some newbies here well work the bookmark.

I have Technorati... and it always makes me feel unloved. :(

It's a different kind of Techno isn't it?

I so need to update my blogroll. I think I will work on that tonight. Thanks for the honorable mention.

oh, oh, oh, Bethy, I am doing this, too. Fuck t-rot. Sounds like crotch rot anyway.

I don't care so much about technorati, but I do check my site meter at least 3 times a day.

We're all members of the Technorazzi

Guess I'm out of the loop with this Technorati business, but you've reminded me I need to update my blogroll!

Thanks, Beth! I know it's been a while since I've left a comment, but I wanted you to know you're still one of my daily visits.

Holy smokes you read a lot of blogs!!! You must have a job like my brother and I have.

It's tough not to get caught up in the whole counting page view thing, but I've avoided it so far and my three year aniversary is coming soon at Intravenus De Milo.

I just dig the whole meeting new people aspect of it all. Glad to be part of it!

I am so proud to have the longest blog title, I am getting all choked up...

I left all that materialistic stuff behind when my old blog died. I haven't checked or reinstalled any site metering.

Thanks for the shout, doll. I have been so preoccupied with being anxious about various and sundry things that I have not done much with the blog. Guess if I did that I wouldn't have time to be anxious.

Great idea... I should do this too!

Thanks Beth - I need to do this too. I have no idea how the Technorati formula works, but they always manage to make me feel like a loser on the downslide.
