The Z-List

I've often said "I'm living my life backwards." And so it is with the Z-list.

B-List BloggerI'm not on the A-list, the B-list or even a C-list (!) Strike that! I just found out I'm a B-List Blogger aka Bloglebrity..and I can sing the alphabet song. Does that count?

I didn't think so.

I learned of Mack Collier and his Z-List idea after I won the The Thinking Bloggers Award .
(which is actually a meme with a cerebral twist) and found his name embedded in an article by Ilker Yoldas, who started the Thinking Blog. Mack simply thought of a way to promote blogs that might not otherwise be noticed in a purely tag-me-tag-you-tag-everybody in a quick cut-n-paste post. I've decided to do it today and offer this opportunity to anyone who'd like to try this link-love experiment.

You simply copy the list of blogs from this post, paste them in a new post on your blog and add any others you'd like to the list. Consequently, the list gets longer and the law of dominoes takes place. Simple and hopefully effective.

According to Collier, "Then after you leave your post, the next blogger will do the same thing, cut and paste YOUR list and add THEIR blogs to the list and then re-post it. Add the same instructions in your post then the next blogger should cut and post YOUR list and add any blogs they feel should be on THEIR list. The list will get increasingly long and all the blogs will get a sort of reverse 'pyramid -affect' of link-love."

Mack's initial idea stated an "honor rule" that you not include your own blog in the list. I have mixed feelings about that but since he started the meme, I will honor his request and not place myself on my own list. I would ask -and you should too!! - that the next blogger place me on their list if they so desire. So....... feel free to join me and swipe this list. Then add your own favorites. Let's see if we can spread some blog love. Happy linking.
I took this list from the blog Being Peter Kim who took some of it from Mack Collier's The Viral Garden "Revenge of The Z-List."  The list should not be altered in any way in order to maintain the integrity of the meme.

Note: I have checked the links to make sure they work but have not extensively read each of these blogs. Those from The Viral Garden have techno/marketing/blogging sites mixed in. Some of the promotional tips for blogging I've found helpful.
