Neat. Despite doing totally not a hell of a lot on my blog this month, I ended up #6 on the list of most influential blogs in Quebec (fr), which you can download here. Mitch, who actually does work on his, was at #4– far more deserved, I think. I suspect the rating is highly influenced by Technorati. If so, this stuff shouldn’t surprise anyone– English-language bloggers will always get more links than francophone ones.
If you want to get higher up on the next list, getting involved early in a niche, like podcasting, will really help. “General bloggers” aren’t doing spectacularly these days, I suspect. Likewise, showing up at events generally ensures people will link to you a fair amount… sorry to give up the secrets, guys. 🙂
