So, It Turns Out, This Is A Small Business Blog

I was looking for an email today and found a message, that I'd forgotten about, from

Amy Liu wrote to say, "Our editors recently reviewed your blog and have given it a 7.1 score out of 10 in the recreation category of"

She characterized this as, "quite an achievement."

As it turns out, though, Fear and Loathing - The Gonzo Papers isn't exactly listed in the "recreation" category, it appears in the directory under Business/Small Business.

The second category associated with this blog is Journalism, which is perfect for a site written in the spirit of Hunter S. Thompson. Speaking of which, how do you like the Yahoo! avatar I created?

It made me feel good, actually, that had difficulty "defining" what this blog is about, because that's always the most challenging thing when I want to register with a directory.

The message from went on to say the criteria for evaluation included:
  • Frequency of Updates
  • Relevance of Content
  • Site Design
  • Writing Style
Liu continued, "After carefully reviewing each of these criteria, your site was given its 7.1 score."

Based on it's evaluation, authorized me to display this badge...
