Ruscombe Green is 10th in Top Green Blogs

Today, Total Politics has announced the results of the 2010-2011 blog poll. As you can see from the chart below Ruscombe Green has slipped one place to number 10 in the charts. Although I was delighted to read that in the Top Green Blogs done by Ice Rocket I feature at number one, ahead even of 'The Daily (Maybe)' - the 'Daddy' of Green blogs.

In this Total Politics poll, Dr Lawson's very excellent Mabinogogiblog leaps ahead of me one place, Stroud's Molly Scott Cato's 'Gaian Economics' blog storms into the charts at number 6 after last year not being listed as a Green blog. The Daily (Maybe) stays in it's rightful number one spot and Two Doctors, Barkingside 21 and Another Green World are all also up there. Weggis deservedly creaping up the charts - and new comer Bright Green Scotland is straight in at number 2!

All this is a bit of fun - a strange rivalry amongst many of us who are friends and know each other well - big thanks to all who voted for me - the drop in one place can I am sure be put down to the fact that my family didn't vote this year! My parents saying that it wouldn't be fair to judge as they didn't read the other green blogs! Anyhow enjoy having a read of some of these below.

All these lists, together with articles from leading blog commentators, will be published in the TOTAL POLITICS GUIDE TO POLITICAL BLOGGING, in association with APCO Worldwide. It will be published in October at £14.99.

Weggis has just published here those missing from this years Total Politics Green bloggers Top 25. Green Ladywell is a particular loss - sadly Green councillors lost their seat there.

Well done, like you say all a bit bit strange - but a little bit of fun none the less.
