Blogged Rates 8.1 out of 10

minted methodshopYesterday reviewed MethodShop and gave us an 8.1 out of 10. Amy from had this to say in an email she sent us:

“Our editors recently reviewed your blog and have given it an 8.1 score out of (10) in the Technology / Computers category of This is quite an achievement! Please accept my congratulations on a blog well-done!!” [Amy;]

MethodShop at Blogged
Why didn’t we get a perfect 10? isn’t exactly breaking new ground or changing the world with our gadget tutorials and reviews. But we do have some great stuff like our piece on the iPod DJ Revolution or our compilation of Rejected iPod Engravings. The problem is, after 10 years of articles, there’s definitely a lot of crap buried within these pages.

Perhaps Amy and the judges were less than wooed by such subpar literary crap as…

  • Freddy Got Fingered

    Lady and the Tramp: Spaghetti Dinner Movie Review – Yawn. I could barely read this article myself without passing out after the writer submitted it for editorial review. If you even have trouble sleeping, bookmark this page and pull it up in case of an emergency.

  • Freddy Got Fingered: In-Depth – Did this Tom Green movie really need an in-depth review after it bombed in theaters? Uh, no. Is it a highly trafficked page on MethodShop? Nope. Not a single page view in months. If you want to give us a quick thrill, click on the link above so I can see the page register in our stats for the first time in years.
  • Star Trek 25th Anniversary Game Review – This game came out in 1993 for Macintosh System 7. The first major web browser, NCSA Mosaic, didn’t get released until September 1993. As you can imagine, not many people still own this game let alone visit this page looking for chet codes and hints. I’m probably 1 out of 11 people on the entire planet who have even heard this game.

Will ever give a perfect 10? Maybe. But we’re gonna have to send Amy some flowers or something first. Thanks Amy! I wonder if she’s a real person or just like a database spider that some programmer named “Amy.” Our friend Greg at got the exact same email but his blog got a 8.5. Stupid 8.1. – I guess we have a little room for improvement.
