Feedspot has identified us as one of the world’s 100 best transit blogs, but more remarkably, we’re at #4 out of these 100, after the World Bank’s blog and two big industry new blogs, Mass Transit and METRO Magazines. That means we can call ourselves the world’s best blog that’s not part of a big institution or journalistic enterprise, and that’s totally self-funded without advertising. Yes, this blog is lightly associated with my (little) firm, but I still do almost all the writing, and it’s still largely my personal work.
There are lots of awards out there, but this feels like a real evaluation, based on a mixture of editorial quality and influence.
So, cool! Thanks! This is nice gesture!
