Bruised Egos, Aussie Blogosphere chaos or just a lot of hot air

  • Comments 8

I seemed to have touched a raw nerve the other day with my post to the Australian Blogosphere for a list of "A-List Bloggers". Since the post hit as the same time as the folks attending the MediaConnect forum, it was always going to be interesting.

Mark jibbed, Charles jabbed, Cam feigned, Shane watched, and Paul commentated.

It was awesome to watch this all unfold, and I'm just waiting for Phil, Renai, Rodney and Rob to sink in the boots real soon now ;)  It's a good thing I'm out of the country, or they may send 'the boys' round..

I hate having to rely on US or European examples when trying to explain this to Aussie business owners.  
  • Don't stress Frank, it's not the first time I've been discriminated against solely because of my profession and it probably won't be the last.
