I got myself listed in the Blogdom of God alliance. Like any obsessed blogger, I check my incoming links frequently. Imagine my surprise when I when from 33 links to over 300! Now, TTLB lists me as a Large Mammal. Obviously, that greatly exaggerates my real ability to influence. Ales Rarus has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few months, but I’m still a nobody. This got me thinking.
Getting additional blog exposure is great, but what’s the cost? TTLB Ecosystem was set up to help people keep track of their influence and popularity. With alliance blogrolls listing hundreds of people we might never visit, has the system lost its meaning or usefulness?
What are your thoughts? Do you belong to an alliance? Run one? What’s your take?
