OA Librarian is hot!

I picked this up from my colleague Paul Pival's blog The Distant Librarian. Thanks, Paul.

According to the HotStuff 2.0 blog, OA Librarian is presently ranked #9 out of 442 active library-related blogs, a rise of 21 places from #30. I'd say that's a pretty good spot to be in! (The Distant Librarian is in the neighborhood as well, at a definitely not-too-shabby 45).

Here's the background to HotStuff 2.o and the rankings:

"RSS feeds from over 800 library related blogs are collated on a daily basis and analysed in an attempt to discover new and/or interesting topics. Not all of the blogs have posted something new since HotStuff was launched, so the number of active blogs is lower."

"Just for fun, every day the last 3 blog posts from each blog are analysed to give a “Hot or Not” score. Points are gained for using words that haven’t been used frequently in the past, but lost for using words that are declining in popularity. You can see the current scores on the Hot or Not page!"
