Just what you've long suspected: The Inside Dope is a "Flippery Fish"
I recently noticed HRC at "50 Mile Out of the Loop" mentioning that he'd cracked the top 10,000 in blog rankings in The Truth Laid Bear's blogging ecosystem and had achieved "Slimy Mollusc" status. (50 Miles Out has since skidded a bit and is now ranked #10025)
I'd heard of this interesting site which uses a system to rank blogs before, and so thought I'd take a peek to see how this blog was doing. I imagined that we'd not be within shouting distance of the top 100,000.
Imagine my surprise to find The Inside Dope ranked #8518, thus qualifying our blog as a "Flippery Fish" in the blogging ecosphere.
Now where did I put those hats and hooters?
