The perils of popularity

Ranking Canadian political blogs is, admittedly, a bit train-watchy as a way to spend one's time. Still, much appreciated. Thanks to Robert Jago for Canada’s Top 25 Political Blogs - January, 2009. Putting together such a post much be enormously time consuming and, inevitably, one is not going to please everybody. The comments to the post provide a useful caution as to the reliability of such a ranking process and a reminder that quantity and quality are not necessary the same thing.

Though I am all in favour of popularity myself.

For an alternative ranking system - and links to various critiques - please consider Ranking Canada’s “Top” 25 Political Blogs at mediabuzzard.com; yet more train-watchy.
