This is making the rounds today--Catholic blogger Eric Sammons has put together a list of the top 200 Catholic blogs, based on Google Reader subscriptions.
I am pleased to tell you that this blog has made the list! We're at number 84, my friends (so if you *don't* subscribe via Google Reader--hint, hint...)
But I'm even more pleased to tell you that my talented sister-in-law, author of the popular blog Waltzing Matilda, is in the top 35--she's number 34! Congratulations, sis! I'm thrilled to be related to one of the top Catholic bloggers out there. :)
In all seriousness, lists like these can be fun, as can blog contests and other means of obtaining a little blog recognition. But for those out there who are just starting out, or who blog on a smaller scale--don't be discouraged by arbitrary metrics: just keep saying what you have to say!
