Rise of the Z-Listers….

Over the past couple of days I’ve seen a parade of blogs linking to the Z-List Meme that got started by Mack Collier. His notion, start a list of blogs he thought of as interesting but which may not get noticed by the masses- then ask people to post the list on their blog and add some of their favorites to it. As it moves through the ‘sphere it hopefully introduces people to a new wave of blogs from outside their usual echo chamber and hopefully gets everyone a few new readers.

The end result is a lot of blog posts with an ever increasing (and varying) list of blogs. I’ve grabbed the most current list off the last branch of the list that I’ve seen, but there’s now countless iterations I’m sure.

You can see some of the iterations here.
