In the last ranking, we were at #52. At that time, blogging had slowed down here considerably. However, we've stepped it up here and t's nice to be back in the top 50.
Some random observations. . .
- The #1 and #2 slots continue to be held by Jim West and Scot McKnight. Congratulations to both!
- 3 of the top 10 are Patheos blogs.
- TheSacredPage.com is one of only two blogs written by Catholic academics on the list--and the only one written by Catholic academics in English.
- Bart Ehrman's blog has fallen from #27 to out of the top 50.
- Nijay Gupta's fine blog has climbed to number #28 (from #45). This is one of my favorite bible blogs and I am pleased that it is getting increased traffic.
- Another personal favorite who is on the rise is Nick Norelli, who has risen from #70 to #48. Nick is a great guy and he has a great site. It's so good to see him crack the top 50.
- The top 10 include both believers and skeptics.
Thanks, Peter, for this undertaking. I find it all very interesting. And, of course, I'm thrilled that we made the top 50!
