Six months ago, my blog was listed as #544 when it was a baby 3-months old. Well, baby, we've come a long way.
Today Brass and Ivory is coming in at a respectable #170.
The ranking is calculated on a multi-metric algorithm based on a combination of four sources:
- Google Page Rank (0-10)
- Bloglines Subscriptions (1-20)
- Technorati Authority (1-30)
- eDrugSearch special score (1-10)
Thank you for your continued readership and for helping Brass and Ivory rise through the ranks.
How have you helped, you ask? Here's how...
- You have subscribed to the RSS feed using Bloglines.
- You have linked to Brass and Ivory from your own blog.
- You have been kind and encouraging which makes me want to continue on.
Diane of A Stellarlife checks in with a score of 21 and a rank of #252.
Anne of Disabled Not Dead has a score of 16 and ranks at #465.
Keli of Reality Chick has a score of 15 and ranks at #492.
Jaime of My MS Journal also scores 15 and has a rank of #509.
Pb of The Multiple Sclerosis Companion scores 13 and ranks #619.
Mark of Mark and MS has a score of 9 and ranks #731.
It's wonderful to no longer be the only MS Blogger included on this visible list. As we continue to discuss issues of living with multiple sclerosis, living with chronic illness, and living with insufficient resources and financial coverage, perhaps others will take notice and we can get some beneficial changes made in health policy and public education initiatives.
In the meantime, I was going to discuss a certain press release which appeared early this morning. You may have heard something about a drug which is supposed to help us MSers to walk faster and feel stronger.
Since you can read the press release on no less than three other 'MS blogs', I'm not going to regurgitate that. But I have been doing a lot of extra reading on the matter and will share with you what I have found very soon. So please stay tuned.
