by Al

I was browsing Book of Joe today and came across this fun little tool, that tells you if you’re an A, B, C or err D list Blogger. It’s all based off Technorati rankings (how many other blogs link to your blog) and some what surprisingly we hit the A list. Although the tool is just a bit of fun (and pink!)

RSS Feed Readers Stats

Last week I switched over our RSS feed to Feedburner so that we could get some accurate stats on how many people read Coolest Gadgets via a feed reader (breakdown above).

If you’ve never heard about RSS readers before, they’re a great way to follow your favourite sites without visiting them to see if they’ve been updated (the feeds only update when the sites do). A cool and simple online reader to start off with is Bloglines. See you in the feed :).
