All day today, I’ve noticed people talking about being on the main page of Digg. Who cares? I’m sure it’s probably a little flattering to be “so popular” to be on the front page, but who really cares when it comes down to it? Does your placement on the page determine the readability of your site? If so, why does it appear that a lot of times some of the best blogs aren’t on there. I mean, do a search for Dooce, and you won’t find her on there. (You’ll find her mentioned in an entry, but nothing by her.) If we’re going to determine popularity based on something as simple as people coming to your site and saying, “Wow! That was the best piece of blogging that I’ve ever seen!” and then clicking on a little thing to send your link to a database, then there should be different ways of determining what’s best. Maybe one database for one style and another for another, but then how do you know when you have too many databases? It’s all very confusing, and, in the end, not very important.
