Blowing my own blog trumpet

Some of you may have noticed that last month I added a little badge on the right with my Wikio London Blog ranking. This is based mostly on other blogs in the list linking to you and is therefore of dubious import what with so many of these blogs having their own local focus. Moving up and down the list is indeed dependent on one of the big London-wide blogs giving you a shout-out.

Which is what happened this month, when I spotted that West Hampstead had been missed off this tube map that used font names instead of stations. Annie Mole of the London Underground blog duly linked back to me and I’ve shot up from No.51 to No.25 in the rankings as a result (not sure when the widget updates, but Wikio sent me a sneak preview of the new list a couple of days ago). All well and good, although frankly I’m more concerned that the blog is of interest to my local readers than to anyone else, otherwise what’s the point!

    well deserved!

    Great work – some well deserved recognition.

  • Not sure if it was down to my link (I've no idea how they compile those rankings to be honest – dezeen's hardly a 'london' blog), but if it was, glad it helped 🙂
