Every blogger experiences this…
Here is a list of my personal belly flops. Highly labor-intensive posts read by almost no one!
Alexa Traffic Rank Series
I find this topic enthralling. But judging from the blog stats, people would rather just read Top 100 Finance Blogs.
*Alexa Ranking Defending Alexa Ranking? Pretty intriguing, right?
*In Defense of Alexa Ranking Jason Calacanis received 1,000 Diggs for posting that Alexa is “100% wrong.” I prove Jason Calacanis 100% wrong and receive zero Diggs. Hmph.
*Proving Alexa Right Alexa is statistically accurate? Newsworthy!
These posts take a ton of research, and are wildly unpopular with readers.
The Entire Wikipedia Series
So few blogs cover the inner-workings of Wikipedia. I always think I’m tapping a gold mine when I blog Wikipedia. Well, oh well. Here are some posts I thought were riveting…
*Is Wikipedia Becoming a Totalitarian State? Wikipedia votes to delete the Esperanza project as the world yawns.
*Microsoft Employee Vandalizes TechCrunch Article Why weren’t people fired over this?
*Wikipedia is Slowing Down Maybe not earth-shattering, but I thought I unearthed some good statistics.
*ValueWiki Contributor of the Day Contest – What? ValueWiki’s giving away $100 every day in February to the best Wiki contributor? With a $500 grand prize on March 1st? What a scoop! Well, moderately.
*Bubbles are Not Inflationary I thought I was being very controversial here, but apparently not so much.
*Top 50 Web 2.0 Blogs – This took me forever! This was like Beethoven writing the 5th Symphony and nobody showing up for the debut.
The internet is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in a burrito. Considering the ValueWiki blog has only been consistently active for little more than a month, we are extremely grateful for our traffic and various rankings. In the meantime, I will continue to blog on whatever I like, and if that’s popular, so be it!
