Rather than passing around surveys and quizzes, electronic chain letters and wishmakers that are all self-centered and petty, I found a great meme that will benefit those who deserve it. And it’s up to you to decide who gets the hat tip(s). The Viral Garden calls it the Revenge of the Z-Lister.
It’s some sort of a whine against how the A-listers (are you one?) are getting all the link love. Time to turn the tables on them. This is The Long Tail at work here, people! Rather than have a select few pick what they think is good, how about we do the picking? It was our year, after all; now, more than ever, do we have the greatest freedom to decide.
Here’s what you can do. Just copy the list of links below, add a few of your own, and post it to your blog. Simple!
The list will get increasingly long, and all the blogs will get a sort of reverse ‘pyramid-affect’ of link-love.
This is a PAINFULLY easy way to bring extra links and exposure to those blogs that deserve it. I would institute an ‘honor’ rule that you don’t include your own blog. The end result is that many great blogs will get a ton of extra exposure, we’ll all find some great new blogs to add to our reading list, and you’ll get mucho good karma points for helping out your fellow bloggers! And who knows some of that link-love might even come back to you!
In my case, I shall use the original list so that it’s still short. Now, copy-paste away (you can also steal the Z-List badge above)!
Want more? You can always check out my blogroll. Feel free to copy the above list and add to it in your own blog.
And perhaps in the next post I shall try out another blog round-up meme called blogtipping.
