Well I just fell out of my chair.Ã‚Â It seems that the OC Blogosphere is racking up the ratings in the state.

Congratulations to all the Orange County based blogs and their cotributors who made the top 20 this week.
This is pretty cool, since I didn’t even know we were being ranked.Ã‚Â Also cool since we’ve only been around for a little more than a year.Ã‚Â Thank you to all the readers, commentors and contributors who have made our first year such a success.
Mike Lawson has pulled together a really good team of contributiors to or site.Ã‚Â I look forward to future rankings.
From the BlogNetNews press release:
Welcome to the next step from BlogNetNews.com/California . Over the weekend, we launched a new feature that ranks which California state politics and news blogs are having the most influence on the direction of conversation in the state blogosphere.
Our rankings come from data provided in your RSS feeds, data from the activity of readers on BlogNetNews.com and data about Internet traffic from third parties. Each Sunday morning at 12:01 AM, BNN will release a new top 20 list of the blogs most powerfully shaping opinion in the California blogosphere. Every week, you can find the list here.
On a side note, once our feed is up on the BlogNetNews site, you can rank the stories from our feed.Ã‚Â This can help influence the ratings.
