We’re #8! We’re #8! Or are we #3? Or #466?

I really have no idea how valid this is (I suspect not very), but every blogger likes a bit of ego stroking from time to time, and I’m no different. So, take this with an enormous grain of salt, but somehow on a new system of blog ranking on Wikio, Respectful Insolence is ranked #8 among science blogs and #466 among general blogs.

What this means, I have no idea, particularly given that the blog doesn’t show up at all in the Health section. I suppose I can console myself that I’m ranked #3 on the Medicine Blog Directory. Again, I have no idea what this means; so take it with a huge grain of salt, particularly since the rankings seem a bit out of date. Medpundit, which ranked #7, stopped blogging over two months ago.

On the other hand, such accolades do stroke the ol’ ego.
