Now a completely irrelevant post but I’ll keep it up anyway!
Somebody referred to me as an “Alpha Blogger” recently.
I have no idea what this means!
Is it a compliment or an insult? When I hear the term “alpha” I think of “alpha male” or “alpha female” which to me are not exactly glorious concepts.
Apologies if I’m being dense. I’m not down with tha’ kids as far as internet terminology goes. I’d probably have more hits on this website if I promoted it anywhere or used any of that fancy Web 2.0 stuff. I didn’t know what lolcats were until a few months ago. I still don’t really get what “digg”s are supposed to be.
EDIT: Found out, doesn’t matter! It’s a compliment but I’d say a little bit inaccurate. This blog isn’t very widely linked or well known and I read blogs with millions of hits and I’d consider them “alpha blogs” though it’s still lovely that people think highly of this blog. But this post is now on page one of search results in Google, so welcome anybody else who didn’t know what it meant!
