Movin' on up!

I've been focusing more lately on improving my writing. I don't know how well it's been working out, since I can't really tell a difference in what I write now versus what I wrote a year ago, or two, or whatever.

This blog is an important part of that focus, and I have attempted to streamline it, simplify it, in order to create a better reading experience for the few readers I may or may not have.

So I recently redesigned the site, and I love the new layout.

I also registered my blog at Technorati, a website that tracks links to your site, and then ranks your site according to those links. I currently have a rating of 1,723,440, which means that in the entire world wide web, there are only 1,723,439 websites out there that have a better rating than mine! I am moving on up!

Blogged.com also rates blogs by content, update frequency, and layout. I am proud to announce that On a Wing and a Prayer has scored a rating of 7.4 out of 10. Also, since blogs are ranked, the best blogs show up first when searched. So if you ever get the urge to skim the aviation blogs on Blogged, I'm on page three. Awesome!

Also, you may have noticed that I changed the font slightly. I like the other font better, but this one is a good deal easier to read, in my opinion. It's easy to change fonts anyway, so we shall see whether I keep it or not.

Anyway, that's it for my blog ramblings. I wonder, if joking about jokes is called meta-humor, and making art as a comment on art is meta-art, talking about the meaning behind the physical world is meta-physics, then what would blogging about blogs be?

Meta-reality? (since the Internet doesn't really exist in a physical way anyway)

Per your inspirations, I have submitted my blog to both Thechnorati and Blogged as well. Since I have only one website that links to mine (yours) my rating is significantly lowers that yours being that you have a linkage of two! Stil have not heard back from Blogged yet (how long did they take to get back to you?) although I know my writing breaks almost every gramatical rule ou there. Especialy sentence fragments. :-) And Spleling. Tee-hee! Anyway keep up the good work and talk you you later! (Missed you Saturday, it was fun playing in the woods though. Next time for sure.)

So I just got my Blogged review back @ 7.7 so about the same as you. I wonder what they look at when grading them? You probably got more points for clarity of thought and frequency of posting and my similar score came from just being really fricken long.

Yeah, we can totally take down the Huff Post. I'll just start paying people to link to my site! :-)
