Making a political blogs’ index 

A slip down the Alexa rankings since this blog launched on a bit of a high in 2006 is no surprise—which reminds me, this blog is now three years old.
   In fact, it turns three right after President Obama is inaugurated.
   Back in 2006, I used this blog as a mental retreat, and I updated daily or even more than daily in the first year.
   I also shared a lot more of my business ideas—but like all good ideas, many of them do not change. If I were to blog new principles all the time, then they couldn’t have been principles to start with.
   All the trivial, personal updates wound up on my Vox blog, just because it was easier to add videos and images, and Alexa doesn’t count my URL separately from other Vox members’.
   So I know I haven’t seen this blog counted in the top marketing blogs’ indices for quite some time, though I was interested to note that I made no. 37 in the Tumeke! New Zealand blogosphere rankings for November 2008.
   Tumeke! counts blogs and since I was a candidate in the , this blog was counted and given a ranking. From what I can tell, the formula uses, inter alia, the Alexa ranking and number of Technorati blog reactions, which interestingly puts me ahead of both the Prime Minister, John Key, and the leader of the New Zealand First party, Winston Peters. The ACT Party was two places ahead of me, at no. 35, combining four bloggers’ writings. My party, the Alliance, was at 65.
   I was glad to see non-candidate blogs score far ahead, such as The Hive at no. 11.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
