Top 200 Catholic blogs

Someone (okay: Eric Sammons) decided to check blog readership via their Google subscription, and came up with some interesting findings.

In the Top 200:

#1 – What Does the Prayer Really Say?

#2 – Whispers in the Loggia

#75 – Archdiocese of Washington (featuring Msgr. Charles Pope)

#132 – A Concord Pastor Comments

#140 – The Anchoress

Your Humble Blogger wound up at #132.  And the guy who started all this, Eric, ended up at #184.

Check out the rest of the list and visit some of the sites — you might be surprised at what you find!

    Hey, don’t forget McNamara’s Blog at #150!

  2. Very nice – congrats to all who made the list! You are tied with Concord Pastor – you are two of my favorites.

  3. I was happy to see I made the list to at #131! We are neck and neck…! That must have been a lot of work to compile such a list. God bless him! And God bless all the Catholic voices of the net!

  4. While it is certainly useful, in a way, to track popularity, I am very much put in mind of these words from the Holy Father’s recent World Communications Day message, namely “that the truth which we long to share does not derive its worth from its ‘popularity’ or from the amount of attention it receives…” Of course, popularity and truth are not mutually exclusive, as many of the popular blogs (like The Deacon’s Bench illustrate) but in the realm of blogging popularity alone cannot be the criterion of success.
