Iain Dale's Guide to Political Blogging, Top 500 Political Blogs.

GUIDE TO POLITICAL BLOGGING IN THE UK 2007-8

Iain has posted the Top 500 political blogs from his book. I'm very pleased to say that I came in at No 59, which I think is not too bad for my first ten months of blogging. I did a bit better in the Top 100 right of centre blogs where I ended up in 21st place. What I am particularly chuffed about is my inclusion into the "Who's who of political blogging" section of Iain's book. This section gives a short biography of the top fifty (ish) political bloggers.

A very big thanks to everyone that took the time to vote for me. I'll try and do better next year, and now that I'm getting a regular bunch of readers things are definitely looking up. I'll try to keep the blog updated regularly with current political issues (which is not always easy as I work 12 hour shifts).

Here are the top 100 political blogs:

Congrats, Steve.

Hey, I'm just amazed I'm even on the list at all.

I was surprised to find myself listed, but not in the top 500. So it is somewhere between 501 and 1200...

...and he has got me down as a Tory boy, the cheeky monkey.

Thanks Gents,

Blogpower really had a good showing this year. Next year it would be great if any of us could do as well as Ellee. If this was a team event we would have walked it.
