I hope this will not turn into a war and a competition about clicking it’s own blog on si.blogs and that screw up the statistics. So, hold on tight, this is it.
The languages of si.blogs in 2005
Let’s start this who with a light subject. The si.blogs by languages:
- SLO – 265
- ENG – 98
- ESP – 1
- POR – 1
This is not very surprising, Slovenian blogs are most popular, in numbers: ~2.5 times more than English ones. There are two special ones, one in Spanish and one in Portuguese.

Taste of Slovenian blog readers is the same as the worlds and the number one fascination is – yes, you are right – PORN – with posts in 1st and 7th place. So the GOLDEN BLOOD SAUSAGE goes to Fraj.NeT BloG for the V striptiz baru post.
The margins are not that big except for the first place – post about strip bar had more clicks than second and third combined!
You can also noted that there is not a single super-star blogger that could pull couple of the posts in top 20 – only 3 of them have two posts on top 20, the best combo being that of /* brez komentarja */ with spots 10 and 14.
Update: There is a super-star blogger in this category! It’s brumec.org! I have no idea how could I miss him. Congrats!
Unofrtunately 7 of the posts, some of them ranked very high, are not available anymore. Some have changed their blogging engine and didn’t provide smooth transitions and others just disappeared. That’s a shame. maybe si.blogs should archive the posts too…

A surprise in a way and a no-brainer in other – the top blog is a blog that has been deleted long time ago. But the memory of nude chick’s blog is still alive and no pasaran has easily won THE GOLDEN BEEF SOUP award – no. 1 blog of 2005. I didn’t include the numbers in the list in order to protect them from but I can tell you that she won by substantial margin. Other bloggers will have to work even harder in 2006 to push her down the list.
In places two and three come old school bloggers that probably also toped the list in previous years, let’s call them Miss si.blogger – My So-Called Blog and Mr. si.blogger – The L Files.
In place 4 is The Glory of Carniola . For me this is a rather disappointing achievement for most famous si.blogger, outside the Slovenia at least. I would expect him to rank higher, but numbers tell me otherwise so I’ll just have to cope with it.
It’s also quite a surprise that top 4 blogs are all written in English. I could speculate that English si.blogs make up in quality what they lack in quantity.
On places 5–8 we find newcomers to si.blogs in 2005. Happy quarter joined the elite list in April and May and attacked the chart with big guns. If they keep this pace up who knows, maybe they will top the chart next year.
In number 9 we find my own blog clinching to the top ten despite obvious lack of posts. Some of the popularity is certainly due to si.blogs fame so – thank you.
In the places from 10 to 20 we find mostly blogs that joined the list in 2005 (those are marked with a * in the list) with few exceptions. In place 13 we find the only Slovenian whale. From top of my head I would rank him higher, but the numbers are telling me that he hold the unlucky 13th spot.
From list of my favourites these are the ones that missed the top 20: The literate artist oslikarstvuinšečem in 23th, The VIP of si.blogs Zapisi in 25th, US powered Slepo črevo in 37th, Moving target Riding the waves in 43th, political LIBERTAREC can be found at 46th place and the most awarded si.blogs hribar.info in 47th.
So this is it for these years award… Congratilations to all of the “winners” (you didn’t win anything material, I’m sorry!) and see you in 2006!
