The Book of Blogger Lists

Where is the darn book of blogger lists? I hear so much talk about A-list, B-list, and C-list bloggers that I really want to know who’s on each of those lists. Because I have some issues with the way things are being run by the blogging cabal, and it’s good to know to whom I should send my formal complaint.

  1. Well, lists of popular blogs (for example, the Technorati 100, Feedster 500, or the blogebrity lists) would probably qualify as those lists, don’t you think?

  2. Paul K. says:

    Well, I was being somewhat tongue in cheek, but I take your point. I had it in my head, however, that the A-list was, you know, smaller and more manageable than the Technorati 100.

    Obviously the TTLB Ecosystem is not without faults (some glaring), but I just love it for the capriciousness of the category naming.

  4. Andrew says:

    If you know who’s in “the blogging cabal,” isn’t that your A-list right there?

  5. Paul K. says:

    No-oooo, I want someone to tell me who’s in the blogging cabal so I can register an official complaint. Anyway, I’m apparently being too subtle in my jokes again, so I think I’ll drop this bit of auto-entertainment.

    There is an actual, official A-list. I blogged about it here:

    Some of us got it :)
    My biggest complaint with the A-list is my same complaint with music. The A-list in both is rarely particularly strong material. I too loaded up my aggregator with A-list material because… well… that’s what showed up in searches and top 100 lists. But after a while I found myself spending more time focused on D-listers. A-list doesn’t mean A-quality.
