The Baseball Bookshelf was recently designated as one of the top 100 Baseball Blogs by Feedspot.com. Woo-hoo.
Here’s the “official notification”:
My name is Anuj Agarwal. I’m Founder of Feedspot.
I would like to personally congratulate you as your blog Ron Kaplan’s Baseball Bookshelf has been selected by our panelist as one of the Top 100 Baseball Blogs on the web.
I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 100 Baseball Blogs on the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of this!
According to the site, “These blogs are ranked based on following criteria
- Google reputation and Google search ranking
- Influence and popularity on Facebook, twitter and other social media sites
- Quality and consistency of posts.
- Feedspot’s editorial team and expert review”
The top five spots went to MLB.com, MLB Trade Rumors, Frangraphs, Milb.com, and Yardbaker. The Bookshelf came in at #51 and was described as “A blog for news, reviews, previews, and interviews about baseball lit and other items of pop culture interest. Bringing news about baseball publications and other media to a discerning audience.” Considering how many hundreds of baseball sites there must be, I consider this high praise indeed.
