My old pal Tristan does a great job debunking the myth of the blogging A-List (which redeems him for the insane “value your blog based on inbound links” post :-).
The fact is the top 100 blogs represent < .01% of the traffic in the entire blogosphere… in what other medium do the top 100 artists account for the minority of the work??!?! Chris… any ideas here?!?!
Anyone can break into the “blogging A-list” in about six to 12 months if they a) blog every day and b) have something intelligent to add to the conversation.
Nice job Tristan
