Almost there (is that where I want to be?)
A surprising little email this morning:
I thought you would be interested to know that your blog is #15 in our weekly BlogSpot hosted sites poll. That leaves it just out of the running for this week, but frequently when a blog is close, it makes it in at a future point. We rely on Google to do the choosing and limit the search to BlogSpot sites and to the prior one-week period.
Take a look at www.bloggerforum.com in the right-hand column to see this week's Top Ten.
Congratulations on having a site that Google considers extremely important in this past week.
Regards, --Steve Covell
So google considers me extremely important. I am - hmm - baffled?
