The List - explained

Yep that's mine. Hunky eh?

The following explanation was provided by
magahee77 phoenix639 by separate comment.

Your personal daily following are extremely important because it is by that means that others spot you.

But what gets you up The List is those who come to your Blog for the first time and comment.

These new comments are totalled up over a 30 day period and that is why you go up or down.

Simple isn't it? And probably the fairest way to do it.

Makes me even more flabbergasted to be as high as I am but very very humble.

Well one could say that no man will ever hit the top. And whoever makes the most outrageous statements will pull in the new commentators.

But I won't say that. I don't care. The people at the top are there by merit. It is their Blog, their brilliance, their following got them there.

Long Live The List. Long Live Blogland!

Go and and thank the three above for their sage advice and yes they are all well above me and do I care? Do I fuck.

I'm Dusty. I'm just spreading the love.

(any new readers. would you mind leaving a comment and I'll get TheCliticals to give you a blowjob. Don't tell anyone. Our secret! )

There are dynamics to the list, and they can be managed if that's what you want, but personally I am much more concerned about who comments rather than how many, because it is the interaction with other bloggers that makes this site so special. I've even known very well established bloggers take posts away so they don't feature high in the List.

Jeez! If I had more comments I simply couldn't cope!


btw - RubyRedPetal got me to come here. What a lovely gesture.

    Quoting magahee77:
    I love the list!

    How are we suppose to know who is better than who if nobody tells us based on statistics????

But no-one is better than anyone though. Thats just my point.

Its all about personal taste isnt it.

Some blogs i just dont understand at all as theyre written in a very colloquial style so i cant get to grips with them.

Others may not be discussing something im familiar with so i will read & learn but not comment.

Others i follow like a plague & love.

A list of new bloggers for us all to have a nosy at is a good idea, that way we ca welcome them.

Lists of new posts as there already is is alos great.

But the competition of getting to the top of a list of popularity....grrr.

I recall the abuse i got in the adlines when i was so called top responder. I hated it & stopped responding completely.

I wont stop blogging though, i enjoy it. Plus with actually meeting bloggers i chat too makes it even better.

I am a first time visitor to your blog. I have been reading your front page and thought I would stop in this here comment area and give you what you asked for.

While I was down here, I read all the comments. My sentiments lie best with what warmandsexy52 said earlier.

Blog On!

I just want to know WHY there isn't an "Active FEMALE blog" list like there is for the guys.

A bloke would have to be an optomist to expect to ever get on that bloody list, mate. I reckon if I write blogs till 2010 I might have a show.
