What influence

illinois_influence_index_071126.jpg

Although they can be fun to look at, this is why I put no stock in ratings and rankings. According to BlogNetNews, where this screen capture came from:

The exact method BNN uses to calculate influence scores must remain proprietary in order to prevent attempts to game the system. BNN's methodology takes into account the fact that all Internet data is profoundly limited in its reliability by using multiple data sets that, when combined, reveal a fair picture of activity in the blogosphere.

I'm not discounting the influence of the other blogs on that list, but I can't figure out how I even got on the list of influentials. There's no way this blog could possibly be considered influential. However, in the remote event that I do hold some sway with someone somewhere, immediately send me your money. Thank you.

Not to mention, you moved up a rank since the last time this list was compiled. So whatever topics you covered between the two rankings was apparently important. Or something.
