According to LexioPhiles, the Engine Room is the 118th best language blog out there. Unfortunately we didn't manage to break into the top 100, but it's nice to see some of my favourite blogs doing so, including:
- Language Log (13th)
- Fritinancy (26th)
- Wordlustitude (27th)
- and Omniglot (41st)
However, apart from The Engine Room, there aren't many blogs by copy editors or sub editors in the LexioPhiles list. Scandalously, no Mighty Red Pen or Editrix!
I don't know if this is anyone's bag, but I quite like the SEO analysis tool SEOSiteCheckup.com. And no, I'm not being paid to say that.
Another find I'm pleased with this week is Journalism.me, which aggregates feeds from dozens of journalism blogs (or perhaps it is more accurate to say blogs by journalists). The Engine Room is, happily, one of those blogs.
It might be good to do ('put together'?) an aggregation of sub editing (copy editing) blogs. What do you reckon? On second thoughts, I'm not sure I have the technical nouse – or the time. An idea for someone else to pick up, perhaps.
