Putting Typophile on the map

Information Architects Japan are updating their Web Trends Map and have just accepted my suggestion to add Typophile.

Eye magazine has just ranked Typophile number six in the typo blogsphere. Go figure. http://blog.eyemagazine.com/?p=183#comment-1581

I was thinking about commenting on Stewf's comment on the blog about the blogs, but was worried I'd vanish up my own ass.

*pfft*

Disappointing to see a #6 ranking, but we are also not a web log. We could, however, rank #1 as the oldest with the most typographic content on the web (our 9th birthday is this week).

We are a blog, among other things: http://typophile.com/uppercaseblogs. I have been interested to see the quality of the uppercase blogs at Typophile improving as more people get into it. Because it has such a broad base of authors, the content quality varies, but you get some esoteric things you might not find anywhere else.

I have have sometimes debated whether to post on my Typophile uppercase blog or on my site http://betatype.com. It seems like if you are interested in spending the time and posting nearly every day, you could gain a readership on your personal type blog. If you are interested in posting from time to time, but want to reach a broad readership and get feedback, the uppercase blogs are a good place to write.

For now, I have decided to use Betatype as a project blog and post to my Typophile blog if there is a typographic point of interest somewhere else on the web. In reality, I post very rarely to either :(

If I had a dollar for the number of times I've heard Christian say "Typophile is not a blog…"

So let's cut to the chase. 4/14/09, the date Eye jumped the shark? Or did that happen years ago?

According to long traditions and updated superstitions the number six is the number of the beast. They say.

Who cares about these lists anyway!
Typophile is the best for me, don't matter what the others say :)
