Strange Notions is the #4 Ranked Atheist Blog on the Internet!

Filed under News


I was alerted this morning that Strange Notions was just listed among the "Top 30 Atheist Blogs And Websites Every Atheist Must Follow."

I was intrigued, partly because this isn't really an "atheist blog"—it's always been a discussion forum for atheists and Catholics—and partly because I follow many atheist blogs that seem to get wayyyyy more traffic and traction than we do.

However, when I clicked over I was stunned to find Strange Notions not just on the list, but chosen as the #4 ranked atheist blog on the entire Internet! Amazing!

I couldn't be more delighted, especially seeing the company we're in. The only three sites above us are The Friendly Atheist, Reddit-Atheism, and the Atheist Revolution blog, all very well-known in the online atheist space.

Here was the ranking criteria the site used:

The Best Atheist blogs from thousands of top Atheist blogs in our index using search and social metrics. Data will be refreshed once a week.
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

This ranking is a testament to all the great contributors we have here, and not just those who write the articles. I want to especially thank our regular commenters, who have provided so many rich thoughts and insights over the years, including:

  • Doug Shaver
  • David Nickol
  • Luke Breuer
  • Steven Dillon
  • Brian Green Adams
  • Paul Brandon Rimmer
  • Michael Murray
  • Peter
  • Ye Olde Statistician

You guys are wonderful and the site wouldn't be what it is without your input.

This is also probably a good time to apologize for the slow-down in original content lately. Posting has been sparse over the past few months. However, going forward, my goal is to get at least 1-2 articles per week on the site, and thankfully I have a long queue of pieces from our contributors waiting in my Draft box.

So stay tuned! Lots of great stuff is coming at Strange Notions. And again, THANK YOU for making this the best online hub for serious Catholic/atheist discussion.
