Biblioblogs Push Lead Codices Story into the Top 5

According to the Pew Research Center, the story of the Lead Codices was number five among the top stories covered by bloggers. I know I posted at least seven times on the the ever more intriguing story.

Here is what the article says:

The No. 1 story, with 13% of links, was a Supreme Court decision overturning a verdict awarding $14 million to a man formerly on death row. A close second, with 12% of links, was a BBC radio piece by author Zadie Smith arguing against closing public libraries. Tied for third (9%) was a story about the creation of artificial clouds to provide shade for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and an op-ed column about the collapse of Detroit. *The final story (5%) involved photographs that may shed light on the early years of Christianity.*

Now, if only the rest of the media would read more Biblioblogs, particularly those written by people who know what they are talking about, perhaps the story would not have been given the sensational headlines it received. Then again, I suppose it was those headlines that kept the rest of us feverishly blogging.

Thanks to ECHURCH BLOG for pointing out this story.
