Who Do You Have to F#%K To Get On The Front Page of WordPress.com?

January 5, 2010

This blog is hosted by WordPress.com .  If you go to their home page you will see a small selection of blogs/posts they are “recommending”.  A few days ago I saw one that caught my interest and clicked on it.  The title was “Childless by Choice” which my wife and I are, so I thought I would take a look.  It was a good post.  Not too serious on the subject and covering the bases.  I left a comment as a courtesy to the author.  For some reason I must have checked to be notified of updates to the post.

I forgot completely about the post until late that night when my blackberry all of a sudden had 50 plus emails notifying me of comments to this post.  I cleared them, then another large batch came through.  Yesterday the notifications were intermittent.  This morning I woke up to over 50 notifications.  I went back to the original source and checked it out. 

This is a good blog, not one with salacious celebrity gossip or anything.  The author had posted an update – It seems her post must have been randomly picked.  Her previous posts that I saw had no comments on one, two on another, eight on another.  These are respectable numbers for a non celebrity blogger.  The post that had been featured on the front page of wordpress.com OVER 200 COMMENTS.

I am pimping this blog on Twitter and Facebook and would KILL for this kind of exposure.

My congratulations go out to Jessica who writes: ANDIAMO – what a travel writer writes when she’s not writing about travel

Now back to my original question.  Anybody want to fill me in?

    I ranted about this very subject on one of my posts a long time ago. There is no rhyme or reason to the crap that they list on the wordpress front page. My autograph blog has generated over a million views in a little over a year and never been listed on any wordpress list of any type. I have seen blogs featuring polaroid photos of dog crap that get listed under “top blogs” or “fastest growing blogs”….
