Most of the blogs in my favourites list are American. It's only natural, as they've had more time to grow, and because they're bigger they tend to show up first in searches. I've found myself to be the lone Scottish voice in the comments. Surely there must be other bloggers in Scotland? Of course there are. I've found a website that lists over 700 of them. It's www.scottishblogs.co.uk and I've just added this blog to the list.
I've also found out my Technorati rating. In the last month, I've jumped about 300,000 places up to 470,724. That puts me in the top half million, though I suspect that getting into the top 100,000 will be much more difficult. Nevertheless, it gives me something to aim for.
