I was fooling around with some blog info links when I clicked on the one for Blogstreet. When I looked at the visualization for my neighborhood, I saw this. I must be the doublewide trailer in the high-rent neighborhood. Every single one of my neighbors is a high-powered major blogger. Since I am so obviously NOT, I wonder how I managed to end up in such a crowd.
Even more interesting is the fact that most of these blogs neither link to me, nor I to them. (The exception is, of course, Instapundit, who is one of my absolute daily reads, and who has linked to me.) I am aware of these blogs, and occasionally read most of them, but neither side has linked to the other. It's one of those "things that make you go hmmmmm".

In my case, also, I don't believe any of the blogs in my 'neighborhood' have linked directly to me. My guess is that the top ten blogs listed are more like the 'city council' for your neighborhood: the most-read and -linked bloggers in the crowd that does link to you.
