I was reminded when posting on FB that I have a new graphic on my blog:
I was notified that the Semi-Spew is on a list of top one hundred poli sci blogs. Really! Not only that but I am fifth on the list????!!! Of course, I have long been skeptical of rankings and have no clue about the methodology that has me ranked ahead of many more influential, smarter blogs, such as http://marginalrevolution.com/, http://www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com/, chrisblattman.com, and others. Indeed, the list is a hodgepodge of journal/press sites, professional associations, units of schools, etc.
But I would like to thank the academy, my agents, my team, my personal assistant, the little people (students), my producer, our screen-writer, and my publicist...... oh, and my wife, Mrs. Spew.
