Yesterday marked a small milestone in the life of this humble robo-blog. The ranking site Technorati placed the Mind-Numbed Robot in the top 100 US political blogs. I have to say, those Technorati guys sure know their stuff!

So, I was much surprised to find today that their ranking list is down. Must have been rough, what with all of the Robo-traffic coming their way. Sorry about that Technorati, Didn’t mean to overwhelm your servers.

Luckily for us, I grabbed a snapshot of the Robot’s spot on the list, just in case they  come to their senses the news caused a complete meltdown of their system.

Looking at the screen-cap, I also noticed that the blog fell a couple of slots, meaning at some point the ranking was higher than 80. Always look on the bright side, I say.

I can only conclude that the major reason for the ranking is due to the fine writers and blogs that graciously link to this one from time to time. You guys make me look good and for that, I thank you. I’d also like to thank the Academy, my first grade teacher, Mom, my dog and God, not necessarily in that order.

Now that this post has been milked for all any dear and patient reader could be expected to endure, I’m off to find some other buffoon to poke fun at. It shouldn’t be too tough. There’s a mirror just down the hall.

    Congrats, Robot! I have to figure out how to up my numbers on that,
    I signed on months ago, and it wasn’t working, and was all crazy.
    I’m glad you have it figured out!

      Hi Bunni! Thanks, but I’m unsure of the “figured out” part. I’ve got an evil plan, it may be working. :)

    What a guy!Errr,I mean robot.What do you eat,anyway?A little WD-40 on some microchips?

  • Opus #6 June 24, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    There will be no milking in mixed company.


    • mnrobot June 24, 2010 at 9:50 pm

      lol Opie. Thanks. I don’t put a lot of weight on it, but at the same time it’s kinda cool for a little blog like mine. They must have screwed up somewhere. :)

        I was going to make a Technorati badge extolling the virtues of being overlooked by I don’t want to rain on your fabulous Robot Parade. I hear those events generate some really cool parade throws so throw me something mister!

        • mnrobot June 25, 2010 at 8:18 am

          Heh, If it does, I certainly haven’t seen it. The majority of hits to the site lately have been for Daisy Fuentes. LOL What good does it do to be in the Top 100 if the list is down? And yes, I plan to throw some linky-love around today.

  • Kristin June 24, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    Whoo hooo….grats!

    I have no idea what any of it means, but it sounds good anyway!!!


    • mnrobot June 24, 2010 at 9:56 pm

      Me neither Kristin, It’s fun to announce meaningless accolades though. Thanks for dropping by. :) I enjoy your writing.

    I just realized I didn’t have you on my Great Reads list. Corrected.

    Your stuff is usually so heavy, I ahve to try to remember to come here early, cause at 10 or 11 and a couple shots of rum, I’m in no condition to absorb your excellent points.

    • mnrobot June 24, 2010 at 10:01 pm

      “couple shots of rum,” – That’s when I do most of my work! lol Thanks for the kind words dude, although I really think of the robot as entry level at best. There are some really heavy hitters out there. You are too kind.

  • Gorges Smythe June 24, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    Congratulations! Now just don’t get the big head and convert to one of those “by invitation only” blogs like some have!

    • mnrobot June 24, 2010 at 10:05 pm

      Never Gorges. But if I did, all of you guys would be on the A list. I’m lucky to be blessed with a great set of blogging friends and fortunately small enough to avoid the trolls, so far.

        MNR: Bravo!

        Mr Smythe: Be advised that the Mind Numbed Robot [Model: Nexus-3] was not designed to be able to utilize one of the bigger heads found only in the Lexus Series of Replicants. Therefore, your fears are not warranted. While we could certainly increase his memory capacity significantly, due to various nanotechnology breakthroughs I have made, this would not result in the inflation of MNR’s ego, merely that he could remember more events and be as efficient as our DoucheNozzle-7 series [see: Barack Hussein Obama] which, admittedly, is not very proficient.

        I hope this answers your concerns.

          does not compute… does not compute…

    I’ll be a troll. Pick me! Pick me!

    • mnrobot June 24, 2010 at 11:15 pm

      ROTFL Opie. first of all, if you’re going to be a troll, you’re doing it wrong.
      1) You should be anonymous.
      2) Trolls are wretches and you just don’t fit the image.
      3) You must be ignorant and speak in vague generalities that can be torn to shreds with a minimum of effort. – I’ve read your blog. It ain’t happening.
      4) If I had trolls like you, I’d reformat the site to beg trolls to comment. A new word might even be coined out of it: Trollicious, and that just doesn’t work.
      It would most assuredly end up on Red’s Banned Word list.

    Awww, thanks darlin’.

  • […] while back, I made note of the Robot breaking the Technorati Top 100 US Politics, well today I notice the blog is in the top 50 in USP, and top 100 in General […]
