An Unexpected Surprise

  Yesterday I received an email out of the blue from Feedspot's founder Anuj Agarwal. Feedspot's been one of the fastest-growing replacements for Google Reader as of late and so I got excited when received an email telling me I had made it to the site's list of Top 100 Animation Blogs.

I'm only no. 91 on the list but I still feel grateful and I feel happy to help Anuj out in spreading awareness over a very useful resource. I don't post non-art stuff like this often and I was reluctant to add the award he presented on my site. But I am someone who is happy to respect the wishes of others and in this instance the decision felt mutually beneficial.

I wish the best of luck to Feedspot and a thank you to them for this honour.

    1. It's given me real incentive to redesign my blog's look.

  2. Hey Mark - I received this email too about the Course Blog - but in all truthfulness, I assumed it was a 'cold call' and didn't give it much credence - we're No 88! I'll take it from you that this is good news! :)

    1. I did a little homework on Feedspot before posting, just to make sure. The general vibe seems to be it's one of the more decent successors to Google Reader.

  3. oh and yes - blog redesign much in order, Mark - it's been too grey and gloomy on here for a while now - time to refresh!
