Let's focus on SHARE...not size.
According to the powers-that-be, I'm a "C-List" blogger. Wrong. I'm clearly a "CK-List Blogger" (duh!). You see, this list shows how much authority I hold--or in my case, don't hold. But I'm only 9 blog links away from being a more authoritative B-Lister. Power is so close...yet so far away. Sigh.
The thing is, I view power as a collective force and fancy it being spread around, or shared. Don't kid yourelf: share unites us, rankings such as these serve to divide us. Less into size, I'm far more focused on share, as in:
- How much does your blog share with your audience?
- How much do you share in the conversation at other blogs?
- How much are you furthering this medium?
- How are you using social media to promote ethical standards?
If you share, you're on my A+ List. So in this Share Economy, size doesn't matter...aren't you glad to hear THAT from a woman?
Not for nothin', the ONLY reason I've even made it to the C-List is because I shared this goodie and scores of blogs picked it up. I didn't do it for that reason...but share begets share. And the best thing about it? I now have new relationships with great blogs--and bloggers--and the piece shares the love by linking to everyone that shared in its creation--and I'm still inviting more to participate.
Now that's the kind of power that's just, well, empowering.
P.S.: Thanks to Kineda's blog for letting me share my view on this--and for making the graphic pink!
P.P.S.: I have a groovy new program based on knowledge share...and it lauches in little over a week. Sorry I can't yet share it. Soon.
