    Really? The two law professor blogs I follow most closely didn’t make the list – and I know they’re quite popular. – becker is an economist, and they don’t strictly cover legal topics, but really a great blog – again Lessig covers non-legal topics, such as politics and whatnot, but also an excellent blog

    Sitemeter (which I use as well, since my blog is a few years old) isn’t the best counter. Google Analytics is a better counter that measures unique visits, rather than people who click refresh all day. Which probably happens a lot on Instapundit and Althouse, because the content (brief as it is) is refreshed throughout the day. Posts at Co-Op are more substantive and take longer to refresh, so even if you have an avid reader base (and you do), they don’t click refresh as often. RSS feeds let me know when to check out new content.
