Rough Survey of Greater Blogistan

· Miscellany, Weblog Concepts

I am a johnny-come-lately when it comes to using “Blogistan” as part of a web site’s monicker so I feel guilty and glad when people like dave winer and dylan tweney add me to their blogrolls as just Blogistan, but it does appear that Google now thinks this site is the second most likely place people are looking for when they search for blogistan.
Number one is still Insolvent Republic of Blogistan. What a great name! We are broadcasting Voice of the Internet into your insolvent republic, brethren and sistren! (Last updated July 19.)
Then after RFB comes another predecessor, a. beam of light in blogistan. Great new entry today.
Page two, after some prominent discussions of the term or conceptual space, comes moose and squirrel in Blogistan.
This one also sounds early, by the domain name at least: Distributed Republic of Blogistan.
