The Lists

You know, I’m not too keen on this new blog rating system. lmfao...There are people I still haven’t found since it swapped over. No, I didn’t have a “My Watched Blogs” column. I knew the page I needed to turn to on the “Most Popular Blogs” list to find the blog for which I was searching. It was nice.

True, the new system will encourage further mingling among bloggers, but I barely have time to visit those I’m already acquainted with on a regular basis. Seems like the system runs a bit slower, too. I liked it when there was a list for the men, one for couples, and a most popular list. I’d like it even better if they did one for the men, one for the women, and one for couples.

Does seem women have an unfair advantage on the most popular list. I know the men have complained about this in the past. Have to say I agree. Just my opinion.

Which list matters to me most?

“People who like this blog, also like…”

An example from January 29th:

LesbianXXXploits
Lots of Sex in Texas!
Bloggy Hell
Just A Thought
AntiBlog of the BlondeCrusader
Along the Bohemian Highway
“just sum ~ divine ~ thoughtz”
Soul Architect
SEIJA
digdug41
5Speed’s Rest Stop on I-69


and from February 1st:

The Honest Hunyhole
Lots of Sex in Texas!
5Speed’s Rest Stop on I-69
SEIJA
Just A Thought
Minutia
wahine kine stuffs
AntiBlog of the BlondeCrusader
The Venting Blog
LesbianXXXploits
Tales from the RED Lips


Look at those two lists.

Chances are if you’re reading this post, you’re on that list, or know someone on that list, or hell, it looks like your own list. Oh sure, it rotates frequently, and there are other blogs listed regularly. But, the blogs listed are always familiar to me.

Talk about extended family.

I can look at those lists and tell you the following off the top of my head about the 16 bloggers listed: The city in which 11 of them reside, the state 14 call home…it would have been 16, but 2 reside out of country, and I can name those...the current dating/marital status of 13, the occupations of 12, and about the kids, or lack of, for all 16. I can’t give you this kinda info about my next door neighbor.

This is the list I watch. If it ever strays too far I’ll know it’s time to put the blog up for sale and relocate.

My point? I don’t have one. I’m just sayin’…

A post without a point? Is that possible?

All roads lead to The Venting Blog. Didn't you know?

Holy Moley! This is the second time today and only the third in all history, that I have 998 as my antispam number. I have been trying to reach 999 since June, at least. Now tell me. What is the point of that?

I never bothered with the most popular list. Or even the ones that are most like me. I can barely live with myself, and I want to read others as bad as I am?? :: shocked gasp :: LOL. In all honesty, I do have a watch list, but I only keep track of... 6 or 7 on a list of 20. And yes, you are one of those...

Yeah, that "...also likes" list is making me nuts. What's up with that thing, anyway? It's just totally inaccurate these days. I think what we need is a customizing feature, sort of like the , where you can put whatever you want on that front page. I'd keep the 'recently posted' thing on the left and make the whole right side my 'watched blog' list. And the next person could do theirs however they wanted.

But that's just me...

    Quoting womenlooking4fun:
    I have to agree with you DT..I would like to see a top male,female,and couples list as well.

    I find the new rating totally unfair to the guys,and I don't even LIKE men that much....*giggles*

I'm not too fond of them myself, but I get tired of replacing toys and batteries. **ducks** (I'M KIDDING, DAMMIT)

I'm trying to mark watched blogs as I go now. It's going to take forever.

    Quoting travelingintexas:
    I tend to agree here. If there is a list, make it Men, Women and Couples. It evens the playing field in my opinion. Heck what do I know. People wouldn't like that either.

    HAHA Keith...I get 999 all the time. I am hogging it. And no you cant borrow it.
pfffffffft go flirt with pig boy in your own blog. **smack**
