We Are 19,896 And Rising!


The Electronic Village broke the 20,000 barrier today. Actually, there are only 19,896 blogs ranked higher than us in the world according to Technorati. This is the highest ranking that we've had in the 13-months of our existence. Some of the Original Villagers will recall how excited we were last year when we broke into the top 100,000.

Our Technorati Authority (shown over on the right-hand navigation bar) rose to 262 today. This is an all-time high for our blog. Technorati Authority is the number of blogs linking to a website in the last six months. The higher the number, the more Technorati Authority the blog has. Moral of that story ... if you are a blogger reading this post ... please find a way to link to our blog!

Anyhow, we owe the growing popularity of our blog to all of the villagers that support us on a regular basis. Over 200 of you are subscribed to us. I'm hopeful to grow that number to 500 by mid-year.

Our mission is simple ... we want to provide information that uplifts people of African descent. If you have ideas or thoughts about ways that we can make your experiences here on our Electronic Village better ... please take a moment to share them with us.
Asante sana Villagers for helping us break the 20,000 barrier!

Congratulations on doing such a fantastic job at blogging, Wayne. It's a nice reward seeing the stats rise, isn't it.

On another note, I'd be honored if you'll pick up this award for Electronic Village. It's called the "E for Excellent" Blog Award. Great going, kiddo. ^5!

Congratulations, villager! Job well done.

Congratulations!!!!

Wayne, you have created such a welcoming and uplifting village here. Spreading vital information and motivating us to act upon that information.

You continue to inspire and uplift me, a conscious woman of pale skin.

To me the Village is multi-generational, multi-racial and multi-cultural and I always feel welcome.

Much love, I am so proud for you.

Mary Ann - Thank you very much for the award. I will post it over the course of the next few days...

Danielle - We are all brothers and sisters when you get down to it. I appreciate your kind words. There are only a handful of Original Villagers and you are in that category...

Marenda and SheCodes - Asante sana!

Lola - Asante sana. My technorati rankings have been dropping in recent days. I imagine that those who linked to me six months ago during the Jena Six story are beginning to drop off (sigh)...
