Well you missed the Greek Baby at 16 and Mr Massie who we have been counting since he entered the list.

I guess my job in a few days time of doing the complete run down of the MacBlogosphere is save then. :-)

scunnert said...

Whit - mah blog's no in the tap ten? No even in the tap 100???

It's a scam - its rigged Ah tell ye.

Well done the wifey:0)

It was a postal vote

Anonymous said...

Scunnert... It must have been rigged.

Subrosa, congratulations to you!

Rab C. Nesbitt said...

Mine will be titanic like this month. Not that I care particularly much.

Dick Puddlecote said...

Where's the rest?

Jeff said...

Nice work Subrosa, I had always assumed the sneak preview was given to the most charming and pleasant of the top 100.

A fitting recipient this month ;-)

Quiet_Man said...

Congrats :-) I hope the other plans for the domination of the Scottish blogosphere are also coming to fruition :-D

MekQuarrie said...

Well done all round.

brownlie said...

Blimey, there must have been some sad one outside the forty!! No, seriously, well done and you deserve to make the top-ten soon. Onward and upwards, girl!

Apogee said...


Congratulations. and well done.


banned said...

Congratulations SR.

subrosa said...

Sorry for the omissions Stephen. Time was very short yesterday and I did want to get them published.

Yes you'll be very safe.

subrosa said...

Scunnert, sorry, I really should have emailed Dan and said there was an obvious error.

subrosa said...

Naw Bug, it was an email vote. :)

subrosa said...

Many thanks Tris.

subrosa said...

Wait til you see mine for next month Rab. ;)

subrosa said...

Goodness me Dick, this is a preview!

You'll see the rest on Saturday, Dan will publish them all then.

Only two more days to go ...

subrosa said...

Well done to you too Jeff and flattery will get you everywhere.

subrosa said...

I don't know about that QM lol.

subrosa said...

Auch brownlie, I'm not too into stats and things but it's good to know Dan sits there and number crunches.

subrosa said...

Thank you Apogee. :)

subrosa said...

And thank you too banned. :)

Old Holborn said...

Well done

Steve said...

"ConservativeHome's ToryDiary"

Link appear to be old.

Crinkly & Ragged Arsed Philosophers said...

Didn't know a league existed and somewhat disappointed that it does.

However having been enlightened I checked out a few - Nick Robinson, Harris and somebody called Bear.

The latter is into the quick,slick and largely vacuous shit - he even offers merchandise? so not impressed.

Harris is a serving MP and if he's worthy of the position he's more to do than blog or expose his twit tendency.

Robinson as a servant of the State Broadcasting Service with all the resource and access to truthful analysis that these should afford, is the prime example of the old saying - In this world there are servants who ride horses while princess walk.

While it's pretty obvious the top blogs have little to fear from the Crinkly effort, we regard that as a compliment rather than an insult.

It's the difference between a manipulated game being marketed and genuine belief.

But don't take that as a criticism SR, we're pleased that you and Jeff (both of whom we regard as in the genuine category) are pleased. So well done

subrosa said...

Thank you OH, your compliment means a lot to me. Well done you too. :)

subrosa said...

Steve, I've emailed Dan and he'll sort it out for Saturday.

subrosa said...

Oh Crinkly, I can rely on you to bring a smile to my face.

Thank you for the compliment.

Yes it does appear to be rather unfair when some could be called 'professional' bloggers but I'm not too into statistics and am still puzzled how these work, so really I don't get too excited about it. To others statistics are a matter of life or death I think! I haven't done anything in particular to achieve this lofty status believe me.

But put your blog on the wikio list Crinkly, you just never know.
