The A-List Works Harder Than You Do

Fri, 03/23/2007 - 08:07 -- rprice

This guy Loren from 1938 media - which to my knowledge is a meta-blogosphere videoblog endeavor, but different than Irina's GETV - has put out another post that begs to be reblogged. The first exposure I had to these guys was when they had their Chinese correspondent say something about Jason Calacanis and Robert Scoble in Chinese - both of them reblogged it. A lot of blogs end up getting lots of traffic because they flame a band, film or company, but these guys get it by saying something nice and showing off that they are friends with the A-Listers.

Now, Loren has told us why the A-Listers got their A-List status, and he's totally right:

I actually got linked on Valleywag once because I said something nice about Jason, and Nick Denton (or whomever) Technorati'd me. The 1938 effect is quite a bit different than the Valleywagg effect... Valleywag is writing about you, Loren wants you to write about him.

It's not about talking about me. It's about talking about what I'm talking about. Know what I mean?

Have something smart to say, and the rest will fall into place.

Keep up the good work.

By the way I never said I was right about what I was saying, but my previous exposure to 1938 was the Chinese girl and the only words any of us can understand are "Jason Calacanis", etc. To me that is begging for a re-blog.
