  1. I LIKE this..cute and a great way to point other bloggers to those who have some good ideas and advice on the whole scheme of making it big in Blogastan!

    I needed a grin, and this brought it…. Keep on your game man. Its fun never knowing whatcha gonna get when I hope over this way!

          1. See…If you were, you’d not have made the video or posted that. You are one of their wanna be soldiers! 😛

  2. Hah, that’s an interesting analogy. I’d be careful, though, some people take real offense to the glamorization of the mafia. I had a professor in grad school who was from New Jersey, and I thought he looked just like James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano’s actor). Before I said something about it–making a joke of course–I found out how badly he hated mafia stereotypes and how he had all but flipped out on a student for putting the professor’s name on a paper as “Tony Soprano” as a joke.

    Some people don’t think it’s lighthearted as maybe you and I do.

  3. Interesting. This story reminded me of that little game called Mafia Wars. I used to play that one.

    It also made me realize that similar to bosses who have risen in the ranks from being soldiers, bloggers need to have a vision and a plan. I also believe that like people in mafias, bloggers have to be aggressive sometimes, to make a change in their rank.

  4. Hi James,

    I love the analogy. It’s a really fun look at the power players of our blogging world. Very funny. There’s nothing like a little humor to get your point across. Great work!

  5. I would agree! I’d say you’ve got a great list of Mafia bloggers here James. I hear so much about Darren and all of the guys you mentioned. I’d say that you’ve hit it right on brother! Very influential people!!

  6. This comes perilously close to disrespecting Don Darren. Don’t make him mad.

    And we need to talk about raising the monthly payment for your special protection service against site hackers. Signor Hangen will be in touch………

  7. LOL. Really funny post. I wonder if something like this does go on; not like the Mafia, of course, but planning and working together, the more popular people using the lower one’s to dictate things in the way they want, and using it all to the best of their advantage to gain traffic and sales. Most of them certainly cross-link.

    But no Brain Clark?!

    1. brother the video should and could of been a lot longer if I mentioned everyone but in essence we do work together, it has to be done for instance I have two projects in the beginning stages of development right now so it’s a cycle really

      1. Yeah, I definitely understand (I have a lot of projects going, too), but Brian Clark gets much more traffic and is a lot more popular than everyone there except for Darren Rowse and maybe Chris Brogan. Just kind of surprised you didn’t include him, but certainly understand why.
