Update December 22, 2006, 11:13pm PST: Seth Godin has a Squidoo lense allowing you to rank each blog on the Z-List. Here is the link.
Time to address a few things happening in the marketing blogosphere. Mack Collier, who writes the consistently interesting blog, The Viral Garden, started a concept called the "Z-List". Mack tried a strategy to get links and attention for blogs that are not on the "A-List".
The concept has accomplished the "viral" nature intended by Mack. This week, Becky Carroll at Customers Rock! added our blog to the list. How nice, Becky. No wonder your blog has taken off so quickly!
Below, I include a copy to the list of blogs that have been mentioned, so far. Each of these blogs acquires another link, and hopefully some traffic. I visited every one of these blogs, there is some interesting information that you might enjoy perusing. Here's the list, as it resides on Becky's site. Once we get through this list, I'll add a few blogs that I follow to the list.
