What’s the D-Z List?
Last week TechZOnline interviewed me. He’s a natural interviewer. He knows how to ask questions. I did my best to answer them with candor, but one question he asked has been following me ever since the interview ended.
He wanted to know what blogging was like when I started.
I keep thinking about that. When I started blogging there was so much more time — time to know people, time then to read everyone’s blog, time to comment on each of them too.
I hardly knew what Technorati was, but boy did I celebrate when my blog hit 750,000 of the 15,000,000 blogs back then. It was a small town kind of blogging. I never heard of the Technorati 100 or cared that an A-List existed. Still don’t know who’s on them. Really.
Now, I’ve got three blogs. Bookcraft 2.0 started. Other things are happening. Life isn’t simple — as it once was. But I still like life out here with the real people. I’m still a saloonkeeper’s daughter.
That question of TechZ’s bugged me enough that I decided famous folks should know what we folks who aren’t famous do that they don’t get to do, because they’re busy doing what famous people do to stay famous. (How’s that for a sentence?)
And you know what?
The Blogging Times agreed with me. We weren’t sure whether B-Listers and C-Listers are officially famous. The coin toss decided they are.
So starting today, you can read The D-Z List written by me, every Tuesday in The Blogging Times. So, you’ll know what we do too. Click the logo to read my first story.
And yes, the likelihood is high that you’ll see yourself there one day — unless, of course, you move to the head of the alphabet. Then you’ll be too famous.
