My Life on the SEO Blogging D List

If you have every seen Kathy Griffin’s Show “My Life on the D List”, don’t worry I wouldn’t admit it either. As far as I’m concerned you don’t get much mileage by being one of the few non-hot red-heads on the planet. Or by having that voice. It’s a voice made for radio, TV, the insane asylum (getting warmer…), Hell.

I’ve never seen her show either (I don’t have to not admit it like some of you) but I’ve seen enough of Kathy Griffin to know that I’ve seen enough of Kathy Griffin. I’d say she’s a talentless hack… OK, I will say she’s a talentless hack.

So why am I ranting about Kathy Griffin? Well, it was something Nathania said when she put my last post on her “Best Marketing Quotes of the Week” list. She kindly called all of us here at the (EMP) blog a “cult classic” referencing her post about other B-listers which uses the example of actor Bruce Campbell. She was being nice.

It was then that I realized that I’m not on the B-list. Or the C list. In fact I’m right down there with Kathy Griffin on the D list. It almost makes me want to smash my head against the wall if it weren’t for the fact that I have an extremely fragile noggin. I take small solace in that Kathy is on the actor’s talentless hack D list and I’m on the SEO blogging D list. But still, it’s like I’m her second cousin and we just got caught making out. I shudder to think of such things.

But I appreciate Nathania pointing out that my quest for world domination of SEO blogging may not be all it’s cracked up to be. And knowing that puts things into a whole new perspective. It’s not about being on the A-List… it’s simply about doing what you enjoy and making sure that EVERYBODY KNOWS WHO YOU ARE! And for that, Nathania, I thank you for taking me one step closer to my goal!

If the Pole Position Marketing team had a muse—and it does—it would be Max Speed. We love Max’s occasionally off-color, usually amusing and always pointed “Maxisms.” (Maybe “Maxims” would be a better word.) Max gives voice to some of the things we think but, bound by professional decorum, aren’t permitted to say. At least, not out loud.

    Bob, dear Bob Lablaw ….

    Please don’t smash your head against the wall. Doing so would dramatically affect my ability to roam barefoot through the office.

    Aw, Bob. You’re so sweet 🙂

    Seriously, I’m just glad you’ve found a path to follow after the cancellation of Arrested Development. My husband and I watch reruns of the show on HDnet every day. It’s unbelievable that the show was so short-lived.

    Which just proves my point. The audience to sustain such brilliance is very niche indeed. The D-list is far more high level than the A-list, which by design is dumb enough to reach the masses. I’m sorry I only gave you a B-list rating. You’re clearly better than that!

  3. This time last year to the day, I rejoiced at being recognized as being a “D List” ‘blogger.

    The way I looked at it was simple: better to be D listed than not listed at all…

    Well, Nathania seems to think that D is better than A. Which begs the question… Why aren’t I on her Z list? Man, D is way they heck down there! 😉
