There are A-list bloggers

This post is in relation to my Jason Calacanis post about A-list bloggers.

The fact is that many top bloggers had a huge head start in terms of industry connections and influence. The Last Podcast has a great post demonstrating the connections most A-listers had before getting started blogging. It’s a lot easier for a successful blog/media entrepreneur like Jason Calcanis to start a popular blog than it is for a stay at home mom, for example. For some reason, it is only the A-listers themselves who deny the existence of the list of blog buddies as key to success. This is not an issue of inborn personality- you literally become convinced(or lie to convince others) that your A-list presence is nothing more than a result of your hard work only when you are actually on the A-list.

So what do you think?
