I am a Shameless Attention Seeker

Did you know there are two Technorati Top 100 lists?

One is the list determined by the number of blogs that link to another blog. That’s the Top 100 we’re all familiar with.

But there’s also a Top 100 list that is determined by readers. When you vote for a blog as a “favorite” that vote counts towards making the reader Top 100 (thanks for the tip, Rand).

So I went and checked it out, and Copyblogger only needs about 30 more votes to break the reader Top 100.

Some people have suggested I set up a “tip jar” to take donations. I would never do that.

But I will ask for you to boost my ego. :)

So, if you enjoy Copyblogger, why not vote for me as a Technorati favorite here?

UPDATE: You people rawk. But I need 10 more votes to make the top 50. Only 16 days till my birthday — come on, reach deep! :)

  1. Hey Shameless Attention Seeker,

    I have voted. How’s your ego? :-)

  2. Better. Not quite there yet, but better. :)

  3. Reciprocation is the key here! Don’t forget me!

  4. Wow, you nailed me on that one.

    Done. :)

    (you too Martin)

  5. You’ve been on my technorati favorites since I knew about the function.

  6. Done deal.


  7. Another vote from me.

  8. You’re at 99 right now.

    Like, congrats and stuff.

  9. Heh… yes, now my life is complete.

    Although, that blog about cute kittens is still beating me.

    And you know how I feel about cat blogs… :)

  10. Congrats, you’re now owning Steve Palina and firmly in 99th place.
    BTW…what’s wrong with a tip jar…I was just going to add one to my site, and many times I have wished that bloggers had one, so that if I really feel like saying thanks, I can?

  11. Already on my list!

    Looks like the kittens have been beaten!

  12. You got my vote. And no need to reciprocate.
    But if you do, who am I to say no :)

  13. I added ya’ to my Technorati favorites earlier this week.

    Should have done it ages ago.


  14. I did my part. I’m even a fan of shameless plugs! 😉

  15. Done… and suddenly you’re at #67. Behold the awesome power of clicking!

  16. done and done

  17. You guys are the greatest! I’ve been spending part of the afternoon trying to favorite everyone back… Technorati is slow!

  18. Realistically, I’m thinking this push with active Technorati users who even have a clue how to do all this, add to that the ones who read the comments, and the ones who actually get around to messing with it, you’re gonna see Copyblogger in the 150s range, as I see it.

    Looking at how it’s Malkin, Kos, and /. up ahead, and they have readers who know what they’re doing, that’s about where this’ll go. (not saying the copyblogger crew isn’t overly competent, I just figure you’ll have an overlap)

    HOWEVER, I think you’ll start to see people pushing other people, just because it’s rather easy to make all this happen. Some no-namer could get all 100 visitors to get him on the list, but what does it really mean?

    When they first came out with Favorites, they capped it at 40, but now you can have as many as you want, it seems. I figure this’ll be a wakeup call to the big boys that they need to push the favorites, like I said before.

    This is a real nice way to show off how a simple call to action makes for compelling content. I’ve come back to this post 4 times today, and hit the links, checking out the progress.

  19. Mac, you’ve got it.

    Technorati’s never made me a dime and it never will, but I do like to have some fun every once and awhile. :)

  20. “I’ve been spending part of the afternoon trying to favorite everyone back”

    Thanks Brian…now I’m favorited by 2 people…but I have to keep sending the other one Mother’s day cards, or she’ll boot me in a hurry.

  21. Consider yourself gifted, Brian!

  22. Brian, you give great blog You can’t help but make it to the top. We all luv ya either way.

    PS Thanks for the fave hit. I’m up to 4 now. Yippeee

  23. Just added you the fav list and you are now tied for 50-51 with lifehack.org :)


  24. Consider it done. :)

  25. Well, since I don’t have a hope of getting listed, I’ve cast my vote for you! And I think I might have been vote number 101!

  26. Brian,

    Even though I already had you favorited on my main Technorati profile, I just added you on a second profile I had!

    (Of course I would love a recip. my Blog only has 2 favs and one of them is ME! lol…)

  27. Who can resist shameless self-love? Not I!

    You had me at ‘PLEEEEEAAAAASE’

  28. I added you – no question

  29. You ave my vote. I have tried shameless self promotion but no one can spell Teresa, and many folks can’t find St. Paul MN on a map. On top of that the real estate market is slow, which is why I have time to read your most excellent blog and give you a vote.

  30. Hey, gimme a fave too :) I added ya, as hitzatak

  31. Also voted, keep up the good work :)

  32. You have been awarded the Z-list Blogerity status! 😛

  33. You are now officially my first, and only, favorited blog on Technorati.

    It is well deserved. Thanks! :)
