If you appear to pay attention to how your blog ranks, its readership and other stats; then
 You are blogging with the wrong motives.
We realised, as we wallowed in our "shame" and "self-indulgence" for expressing stokedness at being the number 1 New Zealand Christian Blog in HalfDone's rankings for March 09, that our only option was to embrace the dilemma and confess our sins; yes we have a tracking counter *sob* and a Technorati account and not only do we publish the top 10 NZ Christian blog rankings in which we consistently feature somewhat prominently but when we feature at the top of a New Zealand blog ranking report it does give us a brief, momentary surge of accomplishment [I know, I know, penitence, penitence for such wanton emotions - our accusers pay no attention whatsoever to their readership and we should follow their pietistic example].
As such, we feel obligated to share our strategy, it is the least we can do to make up for our indiscretions. In Well I’ll Be Blogrolled! Dr Doug Geivett provides sage instruction as to how to obtain your 15 minutes in the chart published below. We adhere to this religiously (and we spend many hours each week researching and writing our blogs when we could be getting on with our lives but I am sure that has nothing whatsoever to do with our ranking "success" and speaks only to our motives). /sarcasm>
I will leave it to our readers to work out which route we have taken.
