Active Second Life Blogs, 2009

Thursday, April 2, 2009 Thursday, April 02, 2009

 
[UPDATE April 2009] I've sifted through the numerous comments and feedback and added a few missing blogs in a special list at the very bottom. Thanks for your suggestions!
After last week’s update, we received so much feedback and so many suggestions that we have prepared yet another even more extensive list of Second Life blogs. But this will be the last time.

This list is quite different from the previous lists and resolves some issues:

  • Our methodology is shown in the graphic above, including the findings at each stage
  • Two lists have been prepared: a list sorted by Technorati Rank, and separately an alphabetically sorted list of blogs not tracked by Technorati (or some who requested to be unranked)
  • Blogs with identical Technorati rank have been given a "tie" position
  • Eleven separate sources were used as input to the analysis, resulting in some 4,721 candidate URLs
  • Many more blogs appear on these lists than the previous attempts
  • The definition of “active” has been tightened up considerably

The lists include only active Second Life blogs. According to our definition, this means:

  • There must be at least one post within the last three months (dated within 2009)
  • There must be visible Second Life content
  • It must be a blog (and not a forum, flickr group, static website, ning community, etc.)
  • It must not be closed or on hiatus

The unfortunate part is that verification of these characteristics cannot easily be automated. As a result, the 2,101 unique URLs had to be inspected by hand. That’s right - we briefly examined (although sometimes for only a few seconds) each of them. And I say “we”, because this was not something anyone could (or should) attempt on their own. Our international team of blog inspectors included: Amber Decuir, Thickbrick Sleaford, Peter Stindberg, Haley Salomon, Moggs Oceanlane, Quaintly Tuquiri, Radar Masukami, Andrew M and myself who all spent many, many hours this week viewing blogs, checking results, writing/running scripts and compiling results.

When the smoke cleared, it appears we have 1,202 active Second Life blogs at this moment in time. Is this for certain? No - in spite of the comprehensive approach, it is certain we missed some. We may have also made typographical errors, which are impossible to completely eliminate while manually handling over two thousand items. Worse, based on our manual inspection it appears that every day several Second Life blogs are born, fade or disappear. Finally, the Technorati rankings, which I should emphasize are based on links and not based on traffic, also vary from day to day as links are added and removed. Our apologies in advance to anyone who’s been missed.

Know there are many incredibly useful websites that just don’t happen to be blogs or are not really focused on Second Life. But these lists include only Active Second Life Blogs.

The ranking is important only if you believe it to be. If your blog achieves its purpose, then rank doesn’t matter. You should know that in the course of reviewing URLs we discovered many truly wonderful blogs that by chance were not ranked high.

What happens next? Preparation of these lists required vastly more work than ever anticipated, and we will not do this list again until next year. Some have suggested transforming this list into a giant feed, somehow automating it, etc., but we just don’t have the energy left to attempt any of that at this time.

Enjoy!

thanks for taking the time to compile & recompile this list ;D

that's indeed a lot of blogs!
starting to explore right now ...

Dusan Writer said...

All I can say is wow....what a massive, admirable, incredible task - thrice taken! Thanks for this incredible contribution to the community - I've found a large number of blogs that I didn't know about before, and it just amazes me how vibrant and varied the SL community is both in and out of world.

Thank you.

Joan Kremer said...

I am in awe at what you've created here! I can't imagine how many hours all of you together put into this task. All I can say is, thank you so very much much -- I'm already enjoying a number of blogs I've discovered from your list. You and your team deserve a "medal of valor" or some such award!

Thank you!

nikadreamscape said...

Fantastic work, to everyone involved! Now I look forward to using this list as a place to find new blogs to read.

Brad Reason / Doubledown Tandino said...

Once again, tremendous work!!! I'm very very VERY glad you spent the effort to put the list together.

Something interesting to note:

Last version (redux) had my blog ( http://djdoubledown.blogspot.com )at 260something. Soon after you published the list, I joined technorati, and completely added my blog, widgets, etc. My blog went from 260 to 60 on this new list! Pretty awesome!

Also, I noticed there's a lot of action amongst the middle chunk of blogs on the list. Depending on when the list in calculated, it looks like many of the blogs could jump around on the rank depending on the day.

all fascinating stuff.

Honour said...

I am in awe of the effort, the determination and the quality of results. A tremendous resource and I applaud you and your team!

Quaintly Tuqiri said...

I feel like a fraud coz I hardly did anything. You rock, Armi :)

Peter Stindberg said...

Very well done, and thanks for asking me for help - it was a pleasure to contribute. Still I think that more "strictness" regarding general MMORPG/Metaverse/Web3.0 blogs would have been worth considering. On some of the blogs in the list you need to find SL content with a magnifying glass, and the #1 on the list - while certainly being a good ressource - derives a fair chunk of its popularity not from SL content but from all the other topics it covers.

Phantom Republic said...

I am also in awe, and deeply respect the work done here. Which makes it even tougher for me to point out a very glaring error ... the error in numbering the list.

Generally, when there is a tie of any sort in a list of things, the number following the tie is not the next number in a numerical sequence... it is the number that would occur had their not been a tie.

For example, if there is a three-way tie for place #72, the next place on the list wouldn't be #73, it would be #75 -- the number that would follow its predecessors had there not been a tie.

So, with this list, barring a tie for first and last place, there would have had a #1 and a #1202 ... regardless of the ties in between (and presuming the last place itself wasn't a tie).

Peter Stindberg said...

Hum... the idea of "clustering" is actually based on my feedback, and Arminasx initially tended to take your approach. However I replied that in sports, when there are two people sharing position #1, position #2 is not left out. So I think both approaches have their validity, and the apporach he finally took is of course the psychologically nicer one towards the participating bloggers.

Ana Lutetia said...

I would love to publish that list on my (4) blogs that appear on that HUGE list!

Great job, once again!

Samara Barzane said...

You are amazing-thanks so much!

Wildstar said...

you did an incredible amount of work!
Congratulations and thank you !

Matt said...

No Snoffy's blog :O

Add me :)
lol

Shelly@Moonshine said...

First off..fabulous efforts. However I noticed one blog that was on your first list and not on the second.
http://aemiliacase.wordpress.com/
This does meet all your requirements so it must just be an error.
Just encouraging everyone to not overlook the Philotic Energy content :)

Nivaya Barbosa said...

Epic! An amazing undertaking! <3

And still my blog's not on there ;)

Ah well, there's always next year, I guess.

Chalice Carling said...

Wonderful job all of you...that's what I call staying power. Are your eyes crossed yet?

Thank you for including my humble little blog :-)

Harper Ganesvoort said...

You are definitely justified in deciding not to do this again. This was more than a massive undertaking, and you did it 3 times. Thanks to you and to your team!

Dale Innis said...

Wow, what alot of work! I hope it was fun. :)

I am rated, woot!

/me waves to Fricker an' Shoshana an' all the other crowd of 76'ers...

Alicia Chenaux said...

Wow, what an amazing thing you all have done! And this is awesome because it gives everyone a chance to check out other blogs that they may never have heard of before!!

/me runs to go check out her fellow 37s.

it is one of the biggest fashion blogs!

Leaves from the Livingtree
http://livingtreeupdate.blogspot.com/

mm said...

This is a great effort, it must have been something like herding cats. Thank you! I've put this page on my "Reference Shelf" sidebar because it's like a telephone book. Most of my visitors are not in Second Life (yet) and look at my sleepy nerdy blog to see the potential I see in there which is always tangled up somehow with things I'm exploring in First Life. My readers include artists, art critics, poets, museums and galleries, filmmakers, and philosophers (and my own family of course). So you might say I'm trying to expose the sunny SLide of the street.

Urizenus Sklar said...

Great job, but I am still unlcear on the methodology.

For an example, let's look at the Herald and Shopping Cart Disco, which are supposed to be "tied" at 14. The following isn't intended to diss SCD -- I love it and I love the editor Tenshi and most of all I love that they advertise in the Herald. But...

The problem is that technorati does not aggregate URLs, so that the various Herald URLs (secondlifeherald.com, foo.secondlifeherald.com, alphavillherald.com, and dragonscoveherald.com) are not combined. If you look at Alexa, which at least aggregates secondlifeherald.com and foo.secondlifeherald.com you get the following:

Second Life Herald rank: 189,635
Shoppin Cart Disco rank: 795,694

That should tell you something. But now let's look at the Technorati stuff.

SCD has
rank: 46,663
authority: 98
reactions: 323

foo.SLH has
rank: 56,880
authority: 76
reactions: 3,364

SLH has
rank: 64,725
authority: 76
reactions: 240

AVH has
rank: 770,942
authority: 13
reactions: 6

Now, if you don't want to aggregate everything, that is fine, but how do you get a tie out of this? As near as I can tell, it looks like you took the authority of foo.slh and added it to the authority of avh (maybe that came to a tie yesterday) and they assumed that would translate into a ranking tie, ignoring that reactions are also a factor in rankings. Note: a total of 3,610 reactions vs. 323 reactions.

If you went by straight Alexa rankings the Herald would come in at #7 just behind the Raphs's blog, which isn't really an SL blog, but whatever, Raph is cool.

Peter Stindberg said...

In RL I work in the field of Search Engine Optimization, and alexa is the laughingstock among professional webmasters as its metrics are far from reliable and can be easily tweaked. It is a sign for a very dubious SEO agency if they promise clients to improve their Alexa ratings.

Urizenus Sklar said...

Yes, we understand the weaknesses of Alexa (toolbar users etc), but at least they aggregate (some of) the incoming URLs.

Otenth Paderborn said...

Wow! Totally amazing. Kudos to all involved.

Mike@ said...

Well.. El Opinador went from the #30 spot in your previous list.... to oblivion (not even mentioned in this new, improved version).

What a ride !

Honey said...

Awesome undertaking! I'm honored that Virtual Freebies was included. Your conclusions make me want to work harder on my placement!

Zillow Dejavu said...

Although Second Chick, secondchick.com, isn't on the list I realize that we are very new (launched in Jan. 2009). You are to be commended for this extraordinary effort. Would love to see updates, maybe quarterly or annually.

Nadja Baxter said...

Dieses Ranking sag gar nichts über die Qualität und die Lesehäufigkeit der Blogs aus. Technorati zählt allein die Verlinkungen der Blog. Im Grunde zeigt es nur ein Netztwerk an. Es ist klar das solche Blogs wie Ihearls.. fashionworld so weit oben stehen da sie ja auf fast jedem Blog verlinkt wurden.

Ich habe mich gewundert warum es für den fashionfeed es plötzlich so wichtig war verlinkt zu werden. Jetzt verstehe ich warum und kann es nachvollziehen.

Solche pauschalen Äußerungen wie Active Second Life Blog 2009 finde ich nicht in Ordnung wenn man nicht gewährleisten kann das auch tatsächlich ein faires Ergebnis herauskommt.
Denn es geht hier bei einigen Blog auch um Werbeeinnahmen und Rankings auf Basis von Verlinkungen zeigen ein total falsches Bild an weil nicht jedem klar ist was Technorati eigentlich macht.

Mein englischer Blog mit gerade mal 4000 Klicks im letzten Jahr hat hier ein Ranking von 68 allein aus der Tatsache, weil er wegen der Fairs häufig verlinkt wurde. Mein Deutscher Blog mit über 400.000 Klicks im Jahr und 35000 Klicks im Monat wurde hier nicht mal erwähnt.

sorry i write i german but my english is not good enought i see peter is in your team hi understand me.

Peter Stindberg said...

What Nadja basically says is that a ranking like Technorati only focuses on how much links a blog has, but not how many readers it has. Nadja's Wnglish blog has a ranking of 68 in the list because of many links for the fairs she oranized. However her German blog with not many links but with 35.000 hits per month (her metrics) is not even present in the list.

HALEY said...

I loved reading the blogs that are in other than English. I am so glad you included them.

Samsara said...

Congratulations for this amazing job! :-)
cheers,
Samsara

Vivianne Draper said...

I applaud your hard work and the effort it must have took. But don't you do a check of, say, the top 25? I only ask because Raph Koster's site is by no means a SL website.

Jordyn Carnell said...

I must say 2 things:

#1 you guys rock (for taking the time to sort through this stuff and give us so many new interesting things to discover)

#2 you guys are nuts (I don't thing you could get me to do this if you paid me)

Wow. What an amazing effort. I would have given up on it a long time back, the FIRST time, and you did it three times.

I was in shrug mode the first time.. there were a few hits on technorati that seemed very questionably "second life themed" and some weren't updated much. The disambiguation you performed the second and third times was impressive. Some folks may not agree with your categories, but I agree with the premise that you have to start somewhere.

I do track usage stats on hibernia on the skids (my blog, it's on the list). This isn't out of vanity or for any commercial reason, I just like numbers and trends and such and it's fun (to me) to discover people actually read things I post there. So even being on this list is a pleasant surprise.

Amazing list, and thank you for including mine.

While traffic seems to steadily increase on my blog, i've never seen it on any of the list. (Even those that include a massive tome of inactive urls)
It could be an issue with how I've listed on technorati, or that my domain is redirected through tumblr. *shrugs*

hey guyz :) its me :) both of u igniter and nicholas"mafia" are full of shit if u did iether of what each other accuses each other of saying... its propaganda.. im the one who used my own coding skills to enhance the lower orbit ion cannon, as well as other powefull source codes orignally derived from a certain code spider :) and ill give u a link to a virus infested version of a precompiled one if u want .. should dday occur.. use rapidsearch for "loic.exe". i call myself the code locker and gun maker because thats what i do. if you ever wondered why patrioticnigras.org wnent out of business? well, it was a joint effort that i first got permission for all u goofy buddies out there to the fbi :) that u could fire away.. and secondly, on a certain month of last year i fired my laser in THREE colors :)
red hot:: straight from my pc to a unkown amount of bots i modified loic.exe to loic.net ;) and broke a hackers world record of 20 million packets per second(i swapped types on occasion) from a single pc
the other color was
solid ruby(and some mice on a wire :): i used secondlife itself to launch a mail bomb if impossible proportions, and a vessel i liked to call "sand fleas", you sea i came to realize the pn was stupid enough to have an email address system within their domain(this was just the first wave... fyi) imagine a self replicating nanoscopic black dot, that was physical bouyant and moved with the wind. find a water connected sim.. such as one of my old hangouts known as rizal :) ( still go there if im testing epic things.. fyi).. and then unleashing them there. the flout to the surface... an quickly out of the sim. oh yeah and btw sorry.. the reason for the 100 emails per sim per user limit is me xD.
the final attack was inworld upon the patrioticnigras.org infested woodbury 'school' of humorous people.. also known as 4chan server(or #### ####;'s as i like to call them) where they had hidden underground maze of extreme gay stupidity... they actually had super giant gold textures statue of a African american(im not racist btw) with a salute an an erect dick.[ i immediately commenced an premature attack on this sim(and got temporarily ip banned for not using stealth..) it had to go...] using the roman orbis source code{a perma sim crasher that is black listed..( i have more than 3 copies of it so ask for "gunmaker" if u need to make use of .. my services :) that i optomized to bypass the blacklist.. and increase the weapon strength several hundred fold >:) and shot it in their sim a couple thousand times. my work was done there :) color of that laser is light blue,, fyi :)

Really good blog I found

I noticed there's a lot of action amongst the middle chunk of blogs on the list. Depending on when the list in calculated, it looks like many of the blogs could jump around on the rank depending on the day.
