Out of 25.8million blogs being tracked on Technorati, Rocketboom has somehow made it up to the top 150 now. We've been sitting at that number for a few weeks. I was already quite surprised in October we had climbed into the top 400, but this is just ridiculous.
This is even more crazy: type the name "amanda" into Google and there is Amanda, at #10. I'll be completely floored if she ever passes Amanda.org, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver.
A few other interesting stats, while I'm at it: When we began, the word "rocketboom" only had a few hits and Google would ask, "Did you mean rocketbook?". Today it seems there is no question and the word "rocketboom" has 756,000 results. (Oh well, in Google news there is still some question).
Also, Rocketboom, I found out from a comment left to our site, is the first search return for the word "vlog" on Google and is in the news every day.
A couple of consequences that really suck a) I can no longer follow/see every link (there just isn't enough time) and b) e-mails are so heavy I can't keep up anymore - it's the worst feeling to not be able to respond - pending issues continue to build up, I really have lost it and I'm kinda in a perpetual state of panic over e-mail right now.
One of the best consequences is that we get so many e-mails with story suggestions and great ideas, we can easily stay up to beat, just from audience participation.
That's pretty cool what Rocketboom has acheived in such a short amount of time. I found out about vlogging and Rocketboom through that story that CBS News did and thought the concept was awesome. Keep up the great work, and I'm sure you'll be #1 in no time.
