Atariboy is WordPress’ hot blog today

Atariboy kicked me off of WordPress.com’s “Hot blogs #1″ spot (I’ve been pretty consistently at the top spot ever since I switched to WordPress). I started reading him and he has a cool tech blog. Subscribed! Oh, how do you get into the #1 spot? Get onto the front page of Digg twice in two days. That’s what Atariboy did. But, doing that isn’t easy. You gotta have interesting content. But, just proves that you can come out of nowhere to become #1 in this blogging world.

  5. So if you have yet to read Digg, or memorandum or any of the other blogger circlejerk party sites, does that mean Atariboy did anything but write well?

    Once again, the “blogosphere” shows itself to be the domain of tech fanboys.

  7. Sometimes what makes it to the top, is pond scum. Not specific to this case, per se. But an overall conceptual framework.
