Technorati Rankings: Top Ten of Aus Spec Fic

Last July, John Scalzi made a list of the Top 50 Personal Blogs in SF/F and then updated it 6 months later in December. I only found these lists in late July this year and, out of interest, I decided to have a look at the rankings for Australian Speculative Fiction blogs. I discovered them today whilst cleaning out my inbox and, as it follows on fairly nicely from the Snapshot, I thought I may as well update and publish them.

It seemed a bit pointless to go for fifty, given that I only looked at about 45 blogs all up. Therefore, here are the Top 10 Personal Blogs in Australian Speculative Fiction, according to Technorati ranking. For interest, I've included Technorati ranking and authority for both today and when I first looked in late July. Also, there was a tie for 10th place and therefore there are actually eleven :-)

Some notes:
I'm assuming this is Australians writing about Australian Spec Fic or I'd be in there somewhere... methinks...

Cool post, interesting!
Well... if Scott Westerfeld is in it, then I can't see why you shouldn't be in it. My selection criteria was pretty arbitrary cos initially I was just checking out people's rankings, without any real intention to blog it. But then I did :-)

Again, if anyone knows of someone who should be counted, I'd love to know. I'm sure my data is pretty skewed ATM.
