Hitwise publishes Top 10 UK blogs

Blog analyst, Hitwise, has published a top 10 list of UK lifesyle blogs. The top slot is held by a site called Fugufish which I have never heard of. Hitwise suggests the site became famous after it hosted some very popular videos. One of these was apparently by a band called OK Go who I have heard of.

Interestingly Guido Fawkes comes in at number three followed by ConservativeHome at four and Iain Dale at five. All three are right-wing political blogs which may suggest a) the Tories are ahead of the new media game compared with Labour b) public interest has swung to the right or c) you can just have more of a laugh in opposition.

Then again, I’m not an analyst.


  1. I’ll go for c). I’ll bet those Tories are wetting their pants right now: Tony is really clearing the path for them at the moment. Unless, of course, LibDem or, worse, the National Front reaps all the benefits from recent Labour cock-ups…

    • It would do the people of soppy Liberal Lewes good to visit Sandwell. I am ratehr pleased with Labour loyalists at the moment. Supporting a system that would have turned Labour away form the 4,000,000 lost educationally and otherwise impoverished voters and towards Liberal second choices would have been an outright betrayal of Labour`s raison d`etre ( if it has one .We have avoided an inward looking elitist stitch up and retained a real accountable choice . Under AV only a centrist mush would have counted so well done Bob.Where you were dead right was the insufferable arrogance of the Polly Toynbee brigade and it goes on. Their descriptions of the real Labour Party irritated me so god knows what it felt like to a Labour Party supporter .I think you have to accept that it was not a good night for Labour though, at this stage the Polls are grim and IMHO its simple. You spent too much , everyone knows it and until,l that is accepted and put to rest you are going nowhere. but then I would say that .
