So my little space on the Internets got bigged up at the #43 slot in Vibe Magazine’s Top 50 Hottest Blogs. I had no idea I was even in contention so it was a pleasant, and humbling, surprise.
Needless to say, Top [insert any # here] lists are fodder for limitless amounts of speculation and deliberation over who shouldn’t have made the list, who should have been ranked higher on the list, who was wantonly left off the list, and on and on.
Funny thing is that the more let’s say “unconventional” a list is—whether it’s be on purpose or because of naivety—the more controversy and debate it will spark. And that just may be the point; who is going to keep fussing about how much they agree on something?
Anyway, here is a compendium of the many rants and raves regarding the aforementioned list. I also hope this Vibe is bankrupt stuff doesn’t spell doom for the mag. Another print publication folding is just plain wackness. [Note: Not a single "source" in that ThisIs50 story, and it's timing, means be weary.]
