Favorites List

Even as Blogspotting's Steve urges Mark Cuban to take advantage of the call out of the Blogher conference for a new approach to blogging A-lists, we have kindly been included on Steve Rubel's own collection of 10 blogs he likes. (Thanks for the kind words. We like our Micro Persuasion fix, too!)

Rubel also recommends that other people (besides Cuban) should create their own lists. His twist is to create a Technorati tage called 10blogs that enables people to share their lists.

Rubel says that part of why he likes the blogs he picked is because they update often. Talk about no pressure....

And such is the problem with the circular nature of the blogosphere. The real changes are not going to happen in those popular, top 10 blogs - those are the staid, lets-not-put-our-necks-out blogs, but the establishment.

The real change is going to be the groundswell from that little blog that has a smaller audience, that then gets one person to link to it, then another and another ... the old shampoo advertisement model.

The idea is just odd, because it alienates. Just what blogs were supposed to stop. Aren't blogs supposed to be the great equalizer, the egalitarian network? With A-lists and top 10 lists, that must just be a fantasy.
