On the Xanga website, there are certain people who are playfully coined “Xangalebrities.” They’re people who get a lot of comments from other bloggers, no matter what they post. Part of the reason is that somewhere along the line, more and more people became interested in their blog, and now they have monstrous power. If they recommend a writer’s blog post, it will be read by hundreds of people in a matter of hours. If those people also like and recommend it, it is sometimes featured on the front page, earning the small-time blogger more subscribers and much more exposure.
