1. New blogs debuting in the Top 100 Australian Blogs
I also noted that overall the political blogs (not unsurprisingly) saw an increase.
Update: (Long story short) I’ve just realised that Megan’s wonderful blog – Imaginif – does qualify for the Top 100 Australian Blogs and would rank at #68 (with an index of 89,567). This will be included in the next update – well done Megan
2. New blogs on the Australian Blogs Community
3. Video of the Week
I am NOT into gaming. But my son sent me to a game review blog run by Ben “Yatzee” Croshaw (an British-born, Aussie based writer) and his reviews crack me up. This review is for a demo of a game called Darkness (strong language warning). Finally, someone who speaks faster than I do!
4. Other News
It was a busy week with dLook and I should have some exciting news next week!
I joined NaBloPoMo, which is a rather odd sounding name! Essentially it means that you make a commitment to post once a day for the whole of November. I usually average one post a day, but somehow the commitment to posting daily is scary. I’d better get some fill-in posts ready 😉
Snoskred created an Aussie group, which I’ve joined (there’s 22 of us)
WordCamp is for WordPress users (and perhaps those considering a move to WordPress), where there will be a series of presentations and roundtables on all things WordPress.
Katie has an interesting post called Seven Reasons your Blog is Scary, which provides some good feedback for blog owners from a user perspective.
This fornight’s Carnival of Australia is being hosted by Kathie at Soho Life (I forgot!). Next edition is at Imaginif, so get your submissions in for Megan by Monday. This fortnight has a theme of Community Safety, but other submissions are still welcomed.
Thanks to Kin for awarding me the you make me smile award
I’d like to pass this award to Cellobella, because she always manages to make me smile on her blog, by email or in comments.
Seems I have been included on Enkay’s list of Top 50 Female bloggers, which includes a handful of Aussie women. The list has grown to 86, and looks like it will soon be at 100.
Enkay is looking for new blogs for the list, so contact him if you know of female bloggers that might be eligible. The list is based on PageRank (groan), Technorati and Alexa.
That’s it for this fortnight!
