900th Blog Joins Villager's Black Blog Rankings


We hit a milestone today! Gunfighter: A Modern Warrior's Life (BBR #334) became the 900th blog added to the Villager's Black Blog Rankings. William J, aka the 'Gunfighter', owns this blog. William is a husband, a father, a Sunday School teacher, a veteran, a soccer coach, a lawman, an aspiring novelist, a blogger, a friend... and an unapologetic tattooed liberal that can probably kick your ass. He recently moved to the Typepad blog structure from his previous blog, The View From Here (BBR #106) that was housed on a Blogger platform.

Many of you recall that we began this journey with only 75 blogs on the list. In just a few months that number has skyrocketed to 900. We are grateful to all of you that support this effort. If any of you are creative ... I would like to create a button or a badge that folks can display if they are on the Villager's Black Blog Rankings. Any creative ideas that you can share with me?

Gunfighter - You earned the link-love! We are heading to get to 1,000 blogs on the list next. Anyhow, why did you change from blogger platform to typepad platform?

Hi Village,

I just wanted you and the rest of the growing list of Black Bloggers to know that Black Bloggers make a mark - on each other and the on-line and off-line world. I discovered today that my blog (Urban Science Adventures!) and 2 Afrospear members (Field Negro & Diary of a PhD student) were linked today on www.scienceblogs.com. ScienceBlogs is a community of over 70 scientist bloggers and is sponsored by SEED Magazine.

I just found the Black Blog Rankings through Dallas South Blog and I would love to add my blog to the list.
