Last summer I was invited to participate in the Social Science Research Council’s survey on the religion blogosphere. The council’s report was recently published, and it includes a few quotes from the creator of The God Blog. (That’s me.) That I expected. But the report also includes an acknowledgment I didn’t expect: that this blog is considered among about 100 of the most influential religion blogs:
As a feature on the website of the Los Angeles-based Jewish Journal, Brad A. Greenberg maintains spirited commentary on the religion headlines, often bringing little-known perspectives to bear. Greenberg is a Christian working for a Jewish site, but his coverage—which began in March of 2007—is hardly sectarian. He has a particularly good eye for how religion plays out in American popular culture.
I’m not sure what that’s worth. I’m not even sure there are 100 religion bloggers these days. But I appreciate the recognition regardless.
