I have the Power of 150, you insignificant noisemakers, you

No, wait, I wrote that incorrectly. I am one of the pr/marketing bloggers that made it into Todd And’s The Power 150: Top Marketing Blogs. In fact, I’m lucky number 100! Take that Steve Rubel of Micropersuasion! Oh, wait, he came in at 15. Take that Kevin Dugan of Strategic PR and The Bad Pitch Blog! No, shoot, both of his blogs beat me at 24 and 45, respectively. Who else, ah, have at thee, Shel Holtz! Crap, he’s 28. I’ll bet I beat that good-for-nothing Todd Defren – let’s see…curses! He soundly beats me out at 34. Ha! I beat eSoup, whatever the hell that is.* I guess that’s some consolation.

Todd rated these blogs using Google PageRank, Bloglines Subscribers, Technorati Ranking, and the ever subjective Todd And Points. I’ve got to admit, when I set up those other 234 Bloglines accounts and subscribed only to my own blog and The Daily Dilbert, I felt kind of stupid. But it’s all paid off now.

Seriously, I think what Todd has done is really quite amazing. You can read his original post here. If I weren’t so busy faking podcasts and writing about the important pr/marketing issues that made me of the the Power 150, I’d have thought of something equally as clever and subjective. Something like “The Chainmail Armour 200,” “125 Blogs in Shining Armour,” or, perhaps, “The stuff I try to cram in my head every week from smart people on their blogs 2.1!”

Honestly, Todd, thanks for taking the time, for enjoying my shambles…uh, rambles, and for contributing so joyfully to this social media space. Congrats to the other 149, yes, even those of you from 1-99.

*note: I’m just kidding. Well, I wasn’t, but I wanted to know what eSoup was really all about, so I visited the site and it looks really good. Sharon has some impressive things on both eSoup and her own website. So, no hard feelings, Sharon, I just…I went for the funny line, okay? Please forgive me. I mean, eSoup? It’s a punchline in this context. How’s that for a tagline? eSoup: simplify, organize, punchline

  1. I’d go with “Armour Hammer 200” or “Armour Hand-Picked 75” or “Armour Legs or Hands or Feet or 100 Top Marketing Blogs” or the “Stiff Armour 90” – thanks, Luke!

  2. Luke,

    Congratulations on being found in the blogosphere! Only ninety-nine PR people left to throw down; hence, my choice title for you, “Armour Joust 2000.” Mel Gibson wants in.

    I sent you an e-mail, then I realized it was your old AU address. Who would use that thing any more?
    Happy New Year.

  3. Shaw,
    Nice to hear from you. Happy new year to you as well. Armour Joust…yes, I do like it. Thanks for leaving the comment in lieu of my old school address. Drop me a line sometime, let me know what you’re up to.

  4. Luke,

    Disregard the message on the other posting. I confused myself – go figure!
    I moved to Ohio City in Cleveland, right by Great Lakes Brewing, Co.
    Lately, I’ve begun fishing for jobs in banking and PR. Shoot me an e-mail at ishaw1453, I’d like to talk a little offline about some techy, bloggy stuff.

    -Dave Shaw
