Black Blog Rankings August, Dallas South moves up to #55
Dallas South continues to climb up the black blog rankings, this month checking in at #55. That’s up from #66 in July’s black blog list.
This month, Electronic Village tracked 1,329 blogs. We found out at Blogging While Brown that many bloggers await Villagers list on the first of the month (insert government check joke here). Thanks to everyone who links to Dallas South -I could use a few more before the convention- and of course everyone who stops by the site to see what we have to say.
Top Ten Black Blogs for Aug 2008 per Villager:
- Pam Spaulding: Pam’s House Blend* (Authority: 1,142 / Rank: 2,160) – [Politics] I had pleasure of sitting next to Pam during the BWB Conference last month. I marveled at her ability to break down the information from the workshop presenters into posts for her blog … complete with photos! Her hometown newspaper wrote a detailed article on the growing respect that Pam is getting throughout the blogosphere. Her blog will be a centerpiece of the coverage later this month at the Democratic National Convention. Pam earned her position as the top blogger of African descent in the universe!
- Ahsmi Rawlins: Nah Right
- The Bossip: Bossip.com
- Angel Laws: Concrete Loop
- Oliver Willis: Oliver Willis (Authority: 713 / Rank: 4,280) – [Politics] This must be one of the best times since Oliver began blogging in April 2005. His beloved Washington Redskins are getting ready for the NFL season and he is one of the few Black bloggers credentialed to cover the DemConvention later this month in Denver.
- Natasha Eubanks: Young, Black & Fabulous
- Sandra Rose: Sandra Rose
- Kimberley Kira: The Angry Black Woman (Authority: 454 / Rank: 8,168) – [Social Commentary] Kimberley Kira (a.k.a., Tempest) jumped two spots to BBR #8 this month. I recently learned that Tempest attended the School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) in my current home town of Cincinnati OH. She describes herself as a “bisexual polyamorous pagan gamer geek” … which might explain the focus that her blog places on sexism and racism. Now that I know about her Cincinnati roots … I will be more proactive in following her blog over the coming weeks and months. After all, she ain’t in the BBR Top Ten for nothin’!
- Fresh Crunkjuice: Crunk & Disorderly*
- Baratunde Thurston and Cheryl Contee: Jack and Jill Politics*
