On top of wangling a space in Iain Dale’s directory of political blogs (thanks, Mick) and scoring far too highly on the Socialist Unity top 101 (thanks, Andy), I notice from our site stats that the Sunrise is now quoted as a source on not one but two Wikipedia entries. Not on Irish politics, unfortunately, but in the entries on Jim Noble and Francis Wheen – both subjects I’ll probably return to.
I also notice that the stats counter is ticking over quite healthily, with hits up from 11,522 in August to 13,513 in September. Not in the same league as Socialist Unity, but I continue to be surprised that this blog attracts any readers at all. No doubt Earl would find a karmic reason for this.
Rud eile: I’m typing on the fly at the moment for reasons of travel, so if your comment languishes a while in the moderation queue don’t worry about it. Normal service will be resumed on Saturday, with further commentary on Respect. Apropos of which, I notice that the Weedy Wanker is shamelessly plagiarising Socialist Unity, and without attribution forbye. When they plagiarise me, I’ll really have hit the big time.
