Fame through blogging

Warning: Jealousy may arise if you choose to venture further into this post. Either that, you'll feel superior knowing that you have a better blog.

What constitutes a famous blogger?
1) Some say its the unique visits per day
2) Some say its the comment per post
3) Some say its the rank by sites that regulates blogs popularity (Alexa, Technorati, Google Page Rank)

Most bloggers would come to realize that its the combination of all the above. Compared to the many better blogs out there, I may lose out on unique visits but my blog is strong in terms of quality comments I receive from people from all walks of life.

Other than the 3 factor mentioned above, there is fourth factor most people overlook while judging whether a blogger is worthy enough to be categorised as "famous blogger".
4) A mention by other bloggers.

You know you have made it when someone willingly dedicate a whole post for you. A famous blogger is bound to be mentioned by other bloggers. (eg: KennySia, JohnChow, Frank Warren, and the famous number guy)

I feel that I have long way to go before I can call myself a famous blogger. After all, my blog is not as great, or as popular as others, but personally I feel good when a someone mention about me or 3POINT8. Even better if they are dedicating a whole blog post for me. I feel great whenever someone says that I am the inspiration behind their blog post. Being placed in that kind of situation, I'm sure most bloggers would feel the same way as me.

The following list are a compilation of my proud moments.

Erm.... I lost track of this.

[If i can keep up with this list, I know I haven't made it to the top yet.]

These bloggers combined have inspired me to write up this post.
What about you? Have you inspired someone to write something lately?

"Nice blog you got. Subscribed!" This was the first message I shouted at you at the shoutbox when I first visited your blog, if you still remember.

The main reason I thought (and still think) your blog very nice and decided to subscribe to it was you have so many comments for most of the posts, even the number of unique visit was not that high. For me, it indicates that your posts (and you the blogger) are very interesting.

Malaysia Students blog has slightly more uniques daily but far less comments than your blog. I'm really jealous now.... Arggghhh, I should not ignore your warning....

Anonymous said...

When I first landed on your blog. You give me the feel of being unique as in the way you deliver your ideas. Famous or not this is a very subjective matter but what is the point of being famous if you lose all your uniqueness and becoming so "commercial"?

Anyway, I like your blog so much. Many times you show me ways to speak the truth...

Keep it up! =)

Linora 'Aronil' Low said...

while i'm not into the whole popular blogger thingie as much as i use to :) But i think you are getting there.. your unique visits should be through the roof especially with entrecard :)

And you have interesting reads which i enjoy ever so often :)

Spife said...

Wow, it's amazing you keep track of those things. It's a good accomplishment already, and everybody almost always thinks they can do better. Hehe.

amei79 said...

wow, long list, i never have one i think...

so as u say u r still far away from being the famous blogger, then how bout me? err, okie...i'll work harder & smarter to bcum a blogger like 3.8 1st...:)

Keep the gd job up! cheers!!!

somehow, a review post by others can be paid review... so if use this as a measurement is not the best one!Anyway, congrats u got so many of them supporting you without you paying them*i think so lah!! Haha

Sharon Q. said...

Discarding unique counts or ranking, your brand name (3point8) in the blogosphere has emerge quite successfully.

Looking at the comments box of top bloggers' blog comparing yours, hooking this much of comments is by far an exceedingly method to prove your blog's worth!

It is way more difficult! And, u've succeeded!!!

Easily I agree but I about the collection should prepare more info then it has.

I enjoy reading your blog. Your write ups are mind stimulating and personally,not only do i find your topics engaging. I don't considering your articles as write ups, but rather, an expression. I feel the emotions in your articles. YOU ARE A DAMN GOOD BLOGGER! No one can deny that....
I would rate the quality of your blog as 10/10.Seriously.
Somehow, you remind me of a rock band which I wanted to dedicate a post to. They are one of the most influential rock bands back in the 90s where their lyrics conveys a mind stimulating, thought provoking, emotionally driven messages on socioeconomic and political injustice,racism, anti war... but too bad, they aren't doing that well commercially. No thanks to the masses that don't appreciate good lyrics. They don't listen..they just hear. The group that i am referring to is "Rage Against the Machine."
Perhaps, i will write about them one of these days.
I pour my heart out in my blog, my feelings,ranging from happy moments to moments of angst. I have been blogging for nearly 2 years, and i still got a long way before reaching RM100!! Now, that's bad!!
