It’s been a while (over a year) since the blog was included in this list. I thought it would be interesting to see when the blog had been included in such daily lists.  It seems that provides a search interface for the blogs it hosts, and this helped my to find  record of the occasions when my blog was in the list of growing blogs.

There was also one occasion when a specific blog post was found to be one of the most widely read posts in a 24-hour period: the post on “UK Universities on Facebook” published on 9th November 2007.
