      Cool! I'm the top one? Yay! Thanks Laketree! Can I brag about this in my blog?

    • Anonymous 1.12.07

      Ooh, Kim, this was quite a task! Fascinating reading and such a good reference resource.

      Thank you so much for doing this...

      Glad you are back :)

    • Leanne 1.12.07

      Wow - thanks for putting this together, I had no idea I was in the top ten, let alone the top 100!

      you certainly can Emila :)

      my pleasure Diane :)...

      What an impression list Kim - you've really done a good job (as always) and I'm going to Digg it :-)

      Btw: I do understand why you moderate, but where do I put in ?

    • Lynda Lehmann 1.12.07

      Thanks for posting this Kim. It must have been a lot of work!

      You are at the top, as I had expected. Congratulations!

      I guess my being in the top 40isn't bad for having started only five months ago.

      I've stumbled the page for you and us!

      Thanks for the list, now we all have many more sites to explore!

      (Where can I find the definition of "page rank" and "authority"?)

    • Kim 1.12.07

      hi Renny
      thanks...I'm not sure what happens with your address in comment moderation ...I will check it out and let you know....thanks for the offer to Digg.....much appreciated :) :-X

      about 3 days work Lynda :)
      and # 35 is an excellent place to be after 5 months...
      thanks so much for the stumble :=X

      authority = Technorati number of links to your blog over the last month

      rank = your ranking at Technorati...the lower the number...the higher you are up the ladder :)
      your ranking is based on your authority at Technorati ....

    • Heartaday 1.12.07

      Thank you for including me! I'm looking forward to checking out the other artists on the list.

      Thanks again, Kim. My Technorati score is now crawling back up and is at 25. Next week TheColorist turns 1 year old, and I will be stealing the audience GIF idea that you used for yours. I hope you'll be flattered by that!

    • Kim 8.12.07

      haha I am Casey :)
      I'm glad to hear that your ranking is going up....and congratulations to you for your up and coming blog birthday....
      tip on the audience gif.....if it doesn't animate when you upload it to your blog....upload it through a photo sharing site like worked for me...
      good luck and have a great weekend :)

    • anandi 8.12.07

      Thanks a lot KIM!
      btw.. I think there is a problem with Technorati. It is not showing my blog name correctly. Please update it.

    • Kim 8.12.07

      hi Anandi
      what would you like me to update your name to ???

    • anandi 8.12.07

      You can use my tagline "IMPROVISING VERSATILITY"
      or you can use my name "Anand"

    • Kim 8.12.07

      will do Anand :)

    • v a l e r i a c i s 9.12.07

      great! I wish I could join you!

    • BoydGreeneArt 9.12.07

      I never would have thought my blog would even of come close to ranking so high. Congratulations on yours an amazing achievement through a lot of hard word and kind hospitality!

    • Anonymous 10.12.07

      your illustrations are lovely :)

      I wasn't surprised at all Boyd....
      you have a wonderful blog....with exceptional artwork...
      thanks for dropping by :)

    • Kirsty 10.12.07

      Neat list, I saw some familiar names but there's masses of people I don't know that I'll enjoy checking out.

      I'd appreciate being considered for future lists.

      Up All Night Again and The Diary Project

    • Kim 10.12.07

      hi Kirsty
      I have put your blogs in the new listings...
      fascinating work and great concept with your Diary Project :)

    • claudine hellmuth 11.12.07

      what a great list! I'd like to throw my hat in:

      here are my technorati stats as of today:

      Authority: 348
      Rank: 13,829

    • Kim 11.12.07

      thanks for leaving your stats Claudine...
      you have some great artwork....a very unique style.....I'll add you to the new listings today.....:)

    • imwithsully 13.12.07

      Thank you thank you for adding me to the list!!!!!! I am flattered!

    • Kim 13.12.07

      you're very welcome Sully...:)

    • Marc Snyder 14.12.07

      Great compilation! Might I add my blog to it? . . .

      Fiji Island Mermaid Press

      Last I checked its "authority" (that word always strikes me as a bit much) was 15.

    • Willie Baronet 14.12.07

      Howdy! Just found out about this and saw I'm number 44. Which is really amazing, as my lucky number is 4. It follows me around like a dog.

      Anyway, thanks for the listing, and for the info on how it works. Keep up the great work! ;-)

    • AscenderRisesAbove 14.12.07

      thanks for going through all this work; it must have taking days (and days) to calculate. I tried to crunch the numbers; 50.5 hours if you spent a half hour on each blog!

    • Catnapping 14.12.07

      Thank you for including me for this next year's list.

      I'm not sure what technorati bases their "authority" on...i've gone from 81 to 88 in the last few i'm not sure if it's trustworthy. it can't be number of links, because this time last year i had more people linking to me, but only a 77 authority...

      I wish they'd let us in on their secrets. LOL

      I think it's so cool that you have tried to sift through their system to try and find all of us. I think illustration blogs make an important contribution to the ether. I'd still be farting around with my silly anecdotes if I hadn't happened onto bloggers like anonymous and valgal...and sites like Illustration Friday.

      Artists ROCK!

    • Josh (musarter) 14.12.07

      Cool list. I see many a bloggers here that I visit often. Please consider my humble blog in the future.

      Thanks for your hard work and interest in the art blog world.

    • Tinker 14.12.07

      I just found your list via Tammy V. at Women, Art, Life - what a lot of work this must have been - so many new links to follow.
      I'm still trying to figure out the whole Technorati experience - I just found that I'm at 199,700 with 40 authorities - at least for today ( ,) and I have no idea what that means really still, but it's intriguing me...
      To qualify for your list, do blogs have to be art only? Or can they include photos and writing as well as art?
      Thanks again for sharing so many fun art links to follow.

    • Kim 14.12.07

      thanks Marc...
      will add your blog to new listings today....and yes your blog has an 'authority' of 15..... :)

      hi Willie...
      you're welcome...
      your line drawings are very Picasso-esque
      ps.. thanks for putting the badge on your blog...

      hi Ascender...
      I think it took me about 3 was compiling the tables that took longer ...
      thanks for the mention at your blog...fantastic Christmas Tags !!!

      hi Catnapping...
      it's great to be finding new art blogs every day.....
      I know the authority changes on a daily basis ....depending on the links to your can read about it here
      Top 101 Artists' Blogs (About)
      or here

      thanks Josh...
      I will add your blog to the new listings as well.....

      hi Tinker
      I'm including photography blogs...
      I see yours is a combination of illustration and I'll put your blog in the new listings :)

    • Angela Matteson 14.12.07

    • Kim 16.12.07

      you're welcome Kasie !
      your CP Portraits are stunning !!!

    • Unknown 19.12.07

      Hi Kim,
      I have no idea what's this all about but this is a nice list of artist's blogs I would like to check out one by one.

      Mine is on

    • Kim 20.12.07

      thanks for submitting your blog Petra ...
      I will put it in my new listings today :)

    • Unknown 20.12.07

      Really? Thanks a lot Kim - very kind of you.

    • Unknown 20.12.07

      Kim, I forgot one thing - please what's this technorati thing all about and how is this 101 artists blogs list compiled from? I don't understand the game - I feel like a dummy...

    • Kim 20.12.07

      you're welcome Petra !
      it would be best if you read the bottom section of this post where it says
      101 Top Artists' Blogs (About)
      There is a link to Technorati in that section that explains Rank and Authority....
      however the moment Technorati is proving rather unstable with it's authority and ranking I may have to look at alternatives if they do not fix their problem

      Rank and Authority
      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.

      It is important to note that we measure the number of blogs, rather than the number of links. So, if a blog links to your blog many times, it still only count as +1 toward your authority. Of course, new links mean the +1 will last another 180 days.

      Technorati Rank is calculated based on how far you are from the top. The blog with the hightest Technorati Authority is the #1 ranked blog. The smaller your Technorati Rank, the closer you are to the top.

    • dibujandoarte 20.12.07

      Hi! I wanted to thank you for including me in the list. I didn't know such list existed. Greetings, Martín.
      PS I added the badge in my blog ;)

    • Kim 20.12.07

      hi Martin...
      it was a pleasure visiting your site ...
      thank you :)

    • Unknown 21.12.07

      Hi Kim,
      thank you very much for your explanations. Now I understand - I always thought that technorati is just another blog provider but I see now that's real statistics. Boy - I am so behind all this.
      But now I have "claimed" both of my blogs - LOL. This is going to be real fun although I am sure I am not going to win the popularity crown - never mind - that's life...

    • Kim 21.12.07

      I'm pleased the information helped Petra....and good luck with Technorati :)

    • Melanie 1.1.08

      Hello! I've no idea how I stumbled upon this... But it's way cool!

    • ruth 25.2.08

      thanks for such a nice comment on my blog!

      i can't really understand why you haven't got julian listed on your top 101 artist blogs, as, after duane keiser, he was the next person to do daily paintings (there must now be 500 or so following suit now?), and, after three years,he is just approaching his 1000th daily painting.

    • Kim 25.2.08

      Is this site a blog and has it been claimed at Technorati...because I cannot find it listed....could you please provide URL and name of the blog as listed at Technorati ?

    • Christine Mercer-Vernon 26.2.08

      Very Cool! I don't know how you find the time to do this, but very cool! i frequent so many of these blogs. i'd be honored just to make the almost list :)

      Great job!

    • Kim 26.2.08

      I have searched Technorati for your blog but cannot find it ...have you claimed your blog at Technorati ??

    • Anonymous 16.4.08
