What is going on in the world of social interaction

The Big Shots Of Blogdom

The Big Shots Of Blogdom

While this is an article that probably only got one comment (mine… if it made it past moderation), I think its a pretty interesting opinion on what is going on in the Blog-o-spere.

Elite bloggers are taking over? Getting the same media attention as say media outlets? (Well maybe not the same, but enough attention to have people pay real close attention to what they are doing)

  1. Every time my little icon pops up in the “top blogs” on WordPress, it’s entirely due to Deadspin or some other big-boy blog linking me. These guys have a finger on the pulse of pop-culture and are becoming tastemakers. I say mainstream media ignore them at their peril, because bloggers’ relationship with their readers is so much more direct and fluid.

  2. That wasn’t clear – what I mean to focus on is the fact that those people who have read my blog upwards of 20 times now don’t stick around after. There are thousands of readers of big blogs that will only visit my site if their personal guru gives a post his seal of approval, and that’s pretty powerful.
