234 Roleplaying Blogs Ranked by Follower

In response to requests I've received, here is an updated listing of 234 old schoolish roleplaying blogs ranked by follower. The follower numbers are from 1 November 2010. You can find links to all of these blogs HERE.

My usual blogometric caveats apply: (1) This list only has blogger.com blogs because follower numbers are not publicly available for WordPress blogs. (2) Yes, I know some blogs are missing. If your blog is not on the list and you want to be included next time, please send me the link. Sorry, I won't go back and update this post when I receive new links! (3) Blogroll aggregator sites were not included.
