Ranking by Wikio

Now, two days ago I published a sneak preview of the May list provided by Wikio that continued to list Clothes on Film as the No.1 blog. Clearly that was wrong so here I am publishing an amendment. Still I did beat Mr. Kermode and his big BBC resources for one month at least so we’ll keep the champagne flowing. Well, maybe Cava instead.

Incidentally these results are compiled by the amount and weight of incoming blog links, plus some other Wikio technical gubbins that I will not pretend to understand.

Anyway thanks to everyone for supporting Clothes on Film, also to my small but select band of contributors for writing some proper high quality posts. If the site tumbles further down next month, I won’t blame any of you.

With Clothes on Film now celebrating its first year birthday (5th May 2009, first post) this has been a rather special present. Though if anyone wants to send me an actual birthday present, I’ll be up for that too.

Thanks again, you lovely lot.

    Hi All,

    Just to explain a bit, the positions Chris published initially were the ones I had given him, which were supposed to offer a sneak preview of the May Cinema rankings and showed Clothes on Film on top – just as it was the previous month.

    However, we had some issues with them and once the scores were recalculated it turned out that the final positions were a bit different and Clothes on Film had actually dropped two places to third. Not bad for a blog that is a year old in my opinion!

    Chris simply relayed the ranking sneak peek that I gave him. So my apologies to him and you all for releasing a preview that wasn’t fully cooked.

    Thanks again to Chris for the post, and well done!
