Where am I?

I'm confused.

Granted, plenty of things confuse me but this time it's the blog rankings in This Site that I don't understand.

I don't normally bother about how I rank but having been away for some time and not being able to blog regularly my number of unique, last 30 days responses had fallen alarmingly. Since I've been back, readers have returned (hearty thanks to each and every one of you) and now the number has climbed from a desperate low of 22 back up to 96.

But how did that compare to the rest of Blogland?

For once I decided to peek at the list.

Guess what? I don't appear.

If I'm not mistaken I should rank equal 13th in the Active Male blogs and a rather more lowly 54th in the overall list. In Europe I should be 7th and in the UK, to my amazement, I should be 2nd.

But I don't seem to appear at all. Anywhere.

Back in August last year I wrote about how my blog seemed to have disappeared from the UK and Surrey listings. Now I seem to have disappeared completely.

You can read this, can't you?

If I cared a little more I could get quite paranoid about this!

Anyone got an explanation?

Lol... don't quote me on this, but it has something to do with the number of unique comments you get within a certain time period, not since you began blogging.

Wherever you are on the list, J, you're always # 1 to me!


Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Keep at it and they (it?) will come. Bad attempt at a quote, I know.

A lot of us read you, so in time your unique responses will be "up there" again.

My numbers bounce more than a beach ball. Go figure.

I have to admit, Sweethang, that I've not been able to keep up with blogs lately so I hadn't realised you were back

Good to see you though and thanks for stopping by.

~ smilez ~ it IS a system, and it's even got some logic to it. I won't bother you though ....

were those 96 'comments' or 'uniques'?
