Indi is very happy that our little website got into the top ten list of english-speaking indonesian bloggers, and the top 100 indonesian blogger in general according to Indonesia Matters. However, I think it is largely based on luck more than the quality of our writings.
I mean, although we're Indonesian, I think we rarely write about over-arching issues involving Indonesian politics or global warming etc, compared to the other top ten blogs within the top 100 english-speaking indonesian bloggers. We only write whatever we think and feel, and mostly they are shallow and trivial issues.
Statistically speaking, our daily readership never gets more than 400 per day. Moreover, we don't really spend time blog-socializing, blogwalking and putting many links back-forth. Not many people left their comments here either.
Allow me to be frank. I think the high rating of our website is largely accidental: getting linked by Boingboing.net (one of the top ten blog in the whole world) that drove our pageview to 20,000 for a few days in June 2007, plus due to the breast-milk cheese article with more than 90,000 pageviews, and thanks to merdeka.or.id aggregator.
Anyway, as more bloggers made it into the list in the future, sure enough indrani.net would be pushed downward in terms of rating. It happened already: we began at number 4 when the list was just launched, then became number 6, 8, and finally number 9. We're excited being in the top ten while it last, but frankly the rating is not that important for us.
Nevertheless, I'd like to thank all readers. I hope you've had a great time reading indrani.net. And hopefully, when we're back in Indonesia we would write more about Indonesia, and that should make our blog fit better into the category of 'bridge blogging'. But we will only write whatever we feel like writing....
