Now I love reading Jason Calacanis, but this post where he makes the statement:
Now, the fact that I’ve had a top story *twice* in two weeks with my tiny little 10,000 person a day blog speaks volumes for the power of TechMeme. The fact that folks who you’ve never heard of before TechMeme get the top slot 10x more than I do is EVEN MORE TELLING.
really cracks me up. You have a blog with 10,000 people reading it daily and you really think you can call that a “tiny little” blog? That is so out of touch, or I am really missing the satire (quite possible). 10,000 daily readers would have to put you in the Top 1% of all blogs in the so-called blogosphere, a fact which Jason surely is aware of, so don’t for a minute fall into the trap of believing that 10K daily readers makes for a tiny, little blog.
If you’re a blogger with a tenth of that volume, 1K readers a day say, you have a very large audience. For a blog, that is. The vast majority of your peers have a fraction of that audience.
Note: Tiny compared to big publications like PC Magazine, CNET, WSJ, NYT, etc. was my point….. 10,000 readers a day is kind of big for a blog, yes.
Thanks for stopping by, Jason.
True, 10K readers a day does not put you in the league of the Big Pubs, though Alexa shows your traffic is closer to PC Mag’s level than PC Mag is to Cnet… But at 10K readers a day, you’re now within an order of magnitude of a niche cable show…
