Sometimes I worry that my blog posts are getting lost into the internet ether and that no one reads them. I continue to write them, however, because I really enjoy writing them and because I like documenting my process when it comes to cosplay. I have a decent amount of followers on here (Hi there! I ❤ you!) and I never intended for this to be anything more than the musings of a girl who just loves dressing up and learning how to make better costumes.
So when I got a notification on my (now deleted) Ashweez Cosplay Facebook page that I was tagged in a post written by Feedspot, I had no idea what to expect. I most definitely wasn’t expecting to find this: I apparently made their
According to the post, the list is ranked by these criteria:
- Google reputation and Google search ranking
- Influence and popularity on Facebook, twitter and other social media sites
- Quality and consistency of posts
- Feedspot’s editorial team and expert review
I’m stunned and really have no idea what to say other than thanks! If you’re reading this right now, chances are you helped me get this! By reading my blog, leaving comments, subscribing, or even just lingering on a post for a while. Each interaction I get helps my google ranking.
I honestly still don’t even believe I really match all four criteria. I definitely try to meet the third one and I’m glad to see that my future posts won’t be in vain. (I’m currently writing up a “Making My Kali Belladonna Cosplay” post as I sew my latest RWBY cosplay.) And I definitely wasn’t expecting to pass “expert review,” so that’s awesome. I had no idea someone was even compiling a list like this, so making Top 75 (as of writing this, I actually broke Top 50!) is quite an honor.
Also, just for my own sanity, I of course had to take as many screenshots as possible so that I can hold onto this glory because I have no idea how long my ranking will stay in that position.
Thanks Feedspot for the feature. It’s really made my night and makes me glad that I’ve been maintaining this blog.
