But that’s not gonna stop me from posting it. From Brad DeLong:

Here’s what NetNewsWire throws up as tops in attention in the “economics” category:

* Mark Thoma’s Economist’s View http://economistsview.typepad.com/economistsview/
* Alex Tabarrok and Tyler Cowen’s Marginal Revolution http://www.marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/
* Justin Fox’s Curious Capitalist http://time-blog.com/curious_capitalist/
* Barry Ritholtz’s The Big Picture http://bigpicture.typepad.com/comments/
* James Hamilton’s and Menzie Chinn’s Econbrowser http://www.econbrowser.com/
* Angry Bear http://angrybear.blogspot.com/
* WSJ Real Time Economics http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/
* Paul Krugman http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/
* Felix Salmon’s Market Movers http://www.portfolio.com/views/blogs/market-movers/
* Paul Kedrosky’s Infectious Greed http://paul.kedrosky.com/

When it comes to Technorati ranking, comment traffic, etc., the Curious Capitalist isn’t remotely in the same league as most of the other blogs on the list. So I don’t really get this. But I’ll take it. And I guess it means I need to finally make the switch to using NetNewsWire as my RSS reader. Because it’s so, you know, discerning.

Update: Okay, so I’ve been reading up on this NetNewsWire “attention” ranking, and if I understand correctly it’s personalized to the user. Which makes this is a list of the 10 econoblogs that Brad DeLong has paid the most attention to lately. And I’m thrilled to be on it. Update 2: And so is Barbara. Sorry for claiming the entire blog to myself.
