My friends Michael Illions at Conservatives with Attitude and Matt Rooney at Save Jersey have been having on little ongoing tit for tat over which blog is more influential and who's candidate gubernatorial candidate is better.
As the "Dean of the NJ Conservative blogger caucus," a title Rooney gave me, I have stayed out of the conflict other than to joke about it.
Today I say, let's end it, but not before patting my own back.
Illions has made much of which blog gets more U.S. traffic as ranked by Alexa.com. Alexa rankings are interesting and they flucuate daily. Today, CWA has a box that compares its traffic with Save Jersey:
United States Ranking
Conservatives with Attitude!: 493,474
Save Jersey: 742,061
Traffic data collected by Alexa.com as of 4/24/09
Well, guess what?! MoreMonmouthMusings' U.S. traffic is ranked today at 465,895!
Now, let's cut the crap and get back to work because all of our numbers pale in comparison to Blue Jersey's at 225,076.
Blue Jersey is kicking out collective butts just like the Democrats do every November in Camden and Middlesex.
Gentlemen: Each of our blogs have influence because of who our readers are, not because we are brilliant or good looking. There is too much important work to do for us to be bickering in public. There's one thing we can learn from the Democrats that will serve our party well: Win first and then fight.
We have a long way to go.
