With nothing better to do (or else to do, pretty much), I'm looking into the things bloggers do to promote and support their authorial efforts. Just signed up with Technorati, which I had heard of before but never paid much attention to. It will be interesting to see what comes of that.
Currently Technorati says it is tracking 4,112,941 blogs. I presume this means my current ranking is 4,112,942.
