Book proposal edits are driving me batty today...so sorry posting will be light (even by my low standards)...
But I just wanted to get this up, and actually meant to sooner. My good pal John Amato, the man behind Crooks & Liars, not only had the number two and number three most linked to blogs last years, but four of the top ten.
(full disclosure: I sometimes guest blog at C&L, and in fact was one of the hosts for election night coverage there--all of my posts however were probably somewhere in the range of 259,000 most popular to 1,116,000 most popular).
In any case, congrats and recognition are in order. John was YouTube before YouTube was YouTube. He pioneered video blogging, in addition to having great written content. I don't think he always gets credit for that (from a personal standpoint, YouTubed videos of some of my appearances v. Republican morons definitely got much traffic due to John's efforts).
So congrats John--and now send some of your damn traffic my way!
PS John is also a New York City boy like me, and us weirdos gots to stick together!
