Biblioblog Rankings – October 2011
Posted by Steve Caruso on November 1, 2011
Sorry it’s a bit late, but here they are:
Jesus Creed has taken a very firm lead with nearly 200,000 article reads!
1) If You Have a Biblioblogging Announcement
As the title says — a sort of announcement-announcement — if you have a Biblioblogging-related announcement and would like it to go out on the month’s Biblioblog Rankings, please email in and (provided it isn’t anything that would make all of us blush) I will include it.
2) More Statistics — As you watch!
The stats system is now completely moved over to the new database and it’s much speedier than before. You can check out the stats in real time (i.e. watch the hits happen) by visiting the following pages:
In the past month, nearly 850 thousand article reads have been recorded. Next month I would not be surprised if this broke 1 million.
3) Call For Submissions: The Biblioblog Reference Library Press
A goal has been set for 10 publications to start the Press off with. So far it looks like we have about 2 or 3 lined up. If you have an idea for a book related to Biblical Studies and have a blog on the List that demonstrates strong knowledge in that area, email in with a prospectus for consideration.
The main focus of the Press is in cross-disciplinary studies and teaching materials, but all ideas (with the exception at this time of fiction, inspirational works, devotionals, or commentaries) are currently being considered.
4) User Accounts on the Library
I know that a large number of you are waiting for the new user accounts to open to the public… but we still have a few more bugs to squash. The test team (about 30 users) is still encountering a few odd errors, but with luck they will be solved by next month, and we can open up user accounts before Christmas.
5) Library-Related Inquiries: A Bit Behind
I am — for lack of a better way to put it — behind with email correspondence. The past month has been very challenging due to some major family transitions, and now to top things off: We’re moving! Hopefully by Christmas the Caruso clan will be moved in to a bigger, nicer apartment just down the street. So please be assured that yes, I am getting your emails; however, responding to them is a bit slow with all of the planning and packing arrangements. :-)
With all of that said: Until next month!
