A while ago I wrote about celebrity bloggers. That article continues to attract attention and that got me thinking.
Who Do You Think is a Celebrity Blogger?
When I wrote that article, to me, a celebrity was a movie star, famous in-the-news person. Someone with “fans”. I wanted to highlight the famous celebrities who blogged, and I have to admit that it was very frustrating writing the article because what I call a blog and what they call a blog can mean different things.
For some, it means the same as my definition: writing and posting frequently on events, interests, and opinions. For others, it’s another publicity stunt and they “just must have a blog, too”, wanting to participate in the blogging fad. Someone else writes their babble and the celeb just shows up for the photo shoot, lending an opinion once in a rare while. I tried to find celeb blogs where the celeb actually does the writing. It was tough.
Now that I’ve explored the blogosphere even more, delving into a variety of bloggers and blogging styles for the past year, my idea of a blogging celebrity has changed. I have to admit that I now consider Scoble a blogging celeb, wouldn’t you? Instapundit, Om Malik, Zeldman, Liz Strauss, Louise Fletcher, Lisa Haneberg, and others have done pretty well in my celebrity book, but I don’t see these people posing for People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful People in the World” yet. Have you?
So I ask you, who are your favorite celebrity bloggers? Who do you keep returning to, following every word they say, arguing with them, or praising them? Which bloggers do you talk about over the office water cooler or over lunch with friends? How do you complete this sentence: “Did you read what X wrote today?”
