Diary of a Clister

Who doesn’t love lists?

For a while now, I was relatively happily not on many lists. But poking around Technorati and BlogPulse tonight I found something quite disturbing… and it isn’t the new blogs coming out of the Fine Fools Network

I am on the list. I am a clister. Technically a C-Lister, but I like the term clister better.

Through a series of links I ended up on Blogebrity and thought I would check to see if Paul, illustrious multi-blog-network leader was still on the blist, having moved up from the clist sometime back in August. Well he isn’t a blister, he is an alister.

And to top that off, Mike and Colin are now blisters. Okay, that didn’t come out how I intended.

Anyway, congrats to us all for holding up all three pillars of pink text on a black background!

  1. I’m just curious. What kind of daily traffic do you get? I’m asking mostly because I’m trying to determine the corrolation (actually the lack thereof) of “celebrity” and “popularity”.

  2. J Wynia: No correlation at all.

    Actually, traffic’s one measure. It’s currently a subjective list, like so many lists of “best video games” or “most powerful women in Hollywood.” Anyone can make a case to get someone moved up or down.

  3. I admit I love my traffic. All things being relative. It’s nice to be at 114 from 20 6 months ago. That is huge for me. It’s nothing compared to Whitespace or Phark.

    Sure I would love higher traffic, but I sorta picked a niche of a niche topic in usability. And I don’t regurgitate posts from other sites on a scale like so many other Alisters do. Not my style.

    I guess I would ask those who do read here: what do you want from this place? Is the current state fine? I am willing to modify things for an audience. As long as it isn’t too far out.

    I have thought about having other writers contribute here. Something like what John does with WebWord, but then I think, “Hey. That’s WebWord!”

    And just so you know Nick, I wasn’t dissing the linklove; Just shocked that I would make it on the list at all.
