the rest of us are b-listers, i guessWell, now there can be very little debate as to who the A-list bloggers are, now that there's the Blog 50. It's a list of the best/most influential bloggers in the blogosphere...Sadly I didn't make the list. Hugh brought it to my attention (of COURSE he did, he's #31 as of this writing) and for once I agree with him: "At least they have a sense of humor about it."
Much fuss has been made about the relevancy of traffic, links and profile when it comes to classifying someone as an "A-lister." (see: Technorati Top 100) Until now, I found the whole thing quite trivial. But I'm coming around now, since this site is almost lampooning the triviality of the idea and making a name for himself along the way. Jeremy Botter. That's his name. I know, because I was so curious I had to find out who was adjuticating this list, and on what criteria. I was pleased to find out that it is essentially the brainchild of an average blogger like you and me who had a great idea.
Well done Jeremy. The Blog 50 "algorhythm" will now become as mysterious as Google's; I for one will be tuning in to see when you make it onto your own list, because it shant be long. And when I will, of course!
Asides: This is how I found out Margaret Cho has a blog, and many other cool ones. My only critique is that only the top 10 or so have links. (Take the time and do it, Jer. It's more "influential" to do so)
