It’s back biatches!
Those old school bloggers may remember the list from way back when. It started in October 2007 with the help from Meg from Blogpond. After 2 great years of updates, the script broke and I have spent 3 years trying to find a coder to help us out. I honestly lost count how many times I had someone promise to help out, and let me down. It got to the point just a few months ago, for my own sanity I had to give up.
But thankfully, an awesomely amazing rock star developer took pity on me and very generously helped me out. And here we are!
A huge thanks also goes to Jarod and Liz Productions who had this baby rocking a sexy new look in under 24hrs! Also to Laura who has had to put up with years of whinging and complaining about this damn list 😉
After 3 years of dreaming about this, it is still hard to believe it’s actually done! Of course, a website is never really finished. And there is still much tweaking and improving to be done.
The Australian blogosphere has changed a lot in 3 years, but I think now more than ever we need this. A showcase of all that is awesome, a celebration of women blogging, across ALL niche, no matter what you blog about.
The list isn’t meant to be a populairty contest. Please don’t be disheartened because you aren’t where you think you should be on the list or compare yourself to others. You are all awesome in your own right, just keep loving what you are doing and blogging for you!
The list is all automated. You just need to add your blog. Metrics will be collected from Google, Alexa, Yahoo and Klout. It is never going to be 100% accurate, but I think it gives us a good snapshot. We may do some minor tweaking of the algorithm used to combine and rank the metrics down the track.
At this stage, new blogs will be added, and metrics updated once a week.
Any suggestions or comments, would love to hear them.
Congratulations to Polka Dot Bride for being in top spot. No mean feat with so many amazing bloggers behind her. She has also been a huge supporter of Blog Chicks over the years.
I do hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Checking out all the fantastic Women bloggers we have in Australia.
