how famous are my friends?

how famous are my friends.

Jeremy and I were talking about something. Who knows because we have never really understood what the other person is saying, though Jeremy would say that he understands what he and I are saying, and that I have not much of a grasp on anything. But somehow he mentioned that he was in the top 100,000 bloggers. He wasn’t taking that as a point of pride. I have tried to avoid getting too popular, since I want to talk to: myself (though I do that IRL), my friends, and my students. I have changed my blog address many times over the past 6 years, and have avoided getting caught up in the maelstrom of popularity. But I wondered. So I went to technorati… which is a problem in and of itself since it really only cares about people who care about people caring about them. Unproblematized, but whateva!

These are just for people I know personally, except for Joi, but he’s met my ex-cat many times.

    cause, you weren’t doing other things?

  2. Clevergirl Says:

    Do I get a T-Shirt with that which says, “Not Popular”?

    jeremy: O_o
    Clevergirl: if you weren’t popular, you’d not be on the list at all.

    I find the rating a real problem, though not to comment negatively on anyone, since it really rates popularity at about a jr high school level, which is strange considering people complain about validy in wikipedia, but have no problem with rating popularity contests validating content. Whateva…

  4. Don’t forget your shovel. » Blog Archive » Not Popular Says:

    […] to Jason (or is that Technocrati?), I am Not Popular. Go […]

  5. Clevergirl Says:

    How about “Not Popular Enough” or… “Not as popular as I should be”or “Still as (un)popular as I was in high school”

    lol, this is fun. :-P

    I’m shocked I even made this list. I haven’t had a blog at this address since 2003!
