The long and short of the list

There is the z-list meme making it way around. I had my hand in it three times. Once here, the second here and the third here.

The third listing is the longer of the three.

If you are ever short of things to do and want to explore simply by following links, this would be a good list to use.

Long live the long tail!

Three times thanks for mentioning Flooring The Consumer!

Doug Karr said...

Hey! How many blogs do you have?! Thanks!!!

Steve Sherlock said...

CB, you are most welcome. Thanks for noticing so quickly and stopping by to acknowledge.

Doug, I have four of my own and then three others that I contribute to. I am building my own "content network". Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon Sarmiento said...

Hi Steve,

Thanks so much for including a link to eSoup in your list! This meme has been a lot of fun, and it's just amazing how far it's reaching.


Steve Sherlock said...


It is my pleasure, this has been great fun! Enjoy!

Michael Wagner said...

Hi Steve,

Thanks for including "Own Your Brand" in the z-list. It's fun to see the where the connections lead.

So much to learn - so many great conversations!

Keep freaks people out,

David Tebbutt said...

I'm not sure what value these lists have without some clue as to their focus. How many people have time to just click on random links in the hope they end up somewhere interesting?

Anyway, fool that I am, I thought I'd let you know which links are duplicated:

Maybe it means they're the ones to head for first.

Steve Sherlock said...


thanks for the updates. Since this was done very quickly the other night, there is a good possibility for duplicates. I did not check to see that those I added were not already on Troy's listing. If they were in both places, yes then I would start with those first.

The two pieces that I added I do know. The Hitchhiker Team uncovered them along the trail. One is my list of those associated with PodCamp Boston, a historic event from Sep 2006. The other is my accumulation of "must reads". Either way, they both contain good stuff.

It would take some time, but you could search within the Hitchhiker blog for those on the listing that I added (those with the links visible) and you should be able to find a write up on them.

Those from Troy's portion of the list is what I'll be working on to do a write up for over the next several weeks.

Thanks for stopping by. This was fun!

Ted said...

Multiple thanks Steve!

I'm going to go follow some links now :)

Richie said...

What a great idea! If it hadn't been for the list I wouldn't have found this page.

I saw this list first on Seth Godin's page and thought that your title was worth a click. Glad to see I wasn't wrong!

Steve Sherlock said...

Richie, thanks for stopping by. Come back often. There is usually something new here on a regular basis. I am also looking for others to is join the Hitchhiker Team. If you (or others who stop by) have an interest to share what you find on your travels along the trail, let me know. There is plenty to find and share.

Toby said...

Steve - thanks for the link love to Diva Marketing and for putting this list. Neat xmas gift!

On another note, this is not meant to be self promoting but, I couldn't find a direct email link. A few months ago I launched a blog to tell the stories of how social media/blogs are changing and touching lives. Blogger Stories - I would love to include your story. If you want to play please let me know. In bloggy fashion, it's open to any of your readers too.

Merry xmas to you!

Jennifer Warwick said...

Thanks so much for linking to The New Charm School! I'm adding Hitchhiker's Guide to my CharmRoll :-)

Roberta Rosenberg said...

Thanks for the mention and link!

Steve Sherlock said...

Ted, Toby, Jennifer, Roberta,

Thank you all for stopping by. This is becoming a very special blogging Christmas!

I posted an OPML file of the current Z-List at KnowHR's a dynamic product, so I'll update it daily. Super great idea!

Beth said...

Thanks for the link and mention - interesting to do a network social analysis ...

cybercasey said...

Awesome list. Just found it. Also, liked the blogs listed here. Thanks a lot-Regards,Casey

Steve Sherlock said...

Frank, Beth, Casey

thanks for stopping by. The OPML will be good to play with Frank.

An analysis of the flow of the z-list would be good to do Beth.

Comeback often Casey, the trail is hardly discovered or marked at this point.

Thanks for keeping the link love going! I just got a referral from your list, so it is still working here at the end of January!

I will check out your customer experience blog (my area also!), among the others you mention.

Steve Sherlock said...

Becky, that is great! Long live the z-list.

Red Blue said...

Cool blog. Out of curiosity, what do you think of the new "$7 Secrets" Script and how did its sudden release affect you? I just thought I'd toss this question out there - simply because I know that almost all internet marketers were affected by its release one way or another. True, not true?
