Some days life hands you unexpected gifts. Today is one of those days. I got this surprise today in a comment left at WUWT Tips & Notes:

Top 100 Science Blogs Winners
CONGRATULATIONS to every blogger that has made this Top Science blogs list! This is the most comprehensive list of best Science blogs on the internet and I’m honoured to have you as part of this! I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world.
If your blog is one of the Top 100 Science blogs, you have the honour of displaying the following badge on your site. Use the below code to display this badge proudly on your blog. You deserve it!:
WUWT comes in at #41 out of 100, handily beating The Guardian Science at #46, The New York Times Science at #47, Huffington Post Science at #48, Smithsonian Science at #51, and RealClimate at #62.
Notably absent are the attack sites, such as John Cook’s “Skeptical Science”, Tamino’s “Open Mind”, and Sou’s aka Miriam O’Brien’s “HotWhopper” dungeon of anonymous haters.
Of course, now the caterwauling starts, because we just can’t have this. There will likely begin a behind the scenes campaign to get WUWT removed, even though the website says:
Ready to challenge your own scientific perceptions?
Which, is what we do here on a regular basis, and some people just can’t tolerate that.
Of course, I could not do this alone. If it were not for the dozens of people who help with guest posts and moderation, and the thousands of readers, WUWT wouldn’t have the presence it does. My thanks to you all!
