The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Technorati Authority and blog diversity.

Technorati is a blog cataloguing site that rates the “authority” of blogs (a measure of how many other blogs link to a particular blog in a six month period). It also gives some insight into how the blogosphere perceives a particular blog.

Today, I checked my Technorati authority. What I found was rather interesting. Although my overall authority at 101 is a decline, from the last time I checked (a popular article of mine, is past six months of age), my blog has garnered interest for many other qualities.

My Entertainment authority stands at 96, ranking me 3,781st out of all entertainment related blogs, worldwide.

My Living authority is 66, ranking me at 27,248th out of all living related blogs, worldwide.

My Family authority is 84, ranking me at 1,712th out of all family related blogs, worldwide.

My Politics authority is 112, ranking me at 3,637th out of all politics related blogs, worldwide.

My U.S Politics authority is 119, ranking me at 2,168th out of all U.S. politics related blogs, worldwide.

My Books authority is 144, ranking me at 1,210th out of all book related blogs, worldwide.

It is somewhat revelatory to see how the blogosphere categorizes my blog, with respect to each of these aspects. It makes me realize that my blog is actually quite diverse in its concerns – and quite well thought of relatively speaking, in each area.

To put my blog rankings in perspective, there were at least 181 million blogs in the world as of early 2012. So, the fact that I should be ranked in the thousands, across so many categories is both gratifying and surprising. It does show that my efforts have been well received, overall.

Thank you to all my readers, particularly those who have chosen to link to my articles to share them with their own readerships. It is much appreciated.

Happy reading, all!
