Another thing to be thankful for: The only way I’ll ever be associated with Paris Hilton

Since some other members of the ScienceBlogs collective are doing it, link whore that I am, I couldn’t resist putting my blog into this site and seeing where it ranked.

And here’s the result:

With 516 links in the last 180 days, Technorati places in the very high authority group.

That makes you a A-List Blogger!


Fortunately (and yet one more thing to be thankful for on Thanksgiving), this is probably the only way I’ll ever be in any way associated with Paris Hilton. I was tempted to take a picture of Orac and Photoshop him into the picture above, but decided that it would be way more work than this silliness is worth. I also hate the pink logo; consequently, I’m not about to be posting it anywhere in my sidebar.

It seems rather odd that I’ve made the A-List rank with PZ (who averages roughly ten times my traffic and has a Technorati rank of around 260 compared to my rank of 4,200) and Ed (who has roughly three times my traffic).

Ah, what the hell! If you’ve got it, flaunt it, baby!

A-List Blogger

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
