Ask the Notables: Which Blog Would You Take Over?


Over the next few weeks we’ll be featuring a series of “Ask the Notable” questions and answers – featuring some of the most notable talent in the blogging & social media space. This was originally going to be called “Ask the Expert” but due to previous comments, I’ll stick with notable!

These aren’t your typical (dry) questions, instead we’re going for humor and interest. And we consider YOUR answers to be notable too – so jump on in and answer the question with a comment below!

This week’s question … If you could take over any other blog, what one would you choose and why?

The responses (and not everyone responded to every question – so you may see some different people next week!) in alphabetical order:

C.C. Chapman
C.C. Chapman

Would it be inappropriate to say Fleshbot? *laugh*

Seriously though, I’d have different answers for different reasons, but I do think it would be fun to lead the team at sites like First Showings, Manolith or Lifehacker in order to have first access to all the information they do. That would be fun!

Chris Garrett

Hmm … either Problogger or Digital Photography School (because there’s a natural fit with topic and audience, plus they are profitable blogs!)

Jason Falls
Social Media Explorer

Probably The Onion‘s or the Tosh.0 blog. I like being funny but the business world forces me to be much more diplomatic than I prefer.

Jay Baer
Convince & Convert

DeadSpin or WineLibraryTV

Maggie Fox
Social Media Group

The Monkeys You Ordered because it is so incredibly funny and I’d like to pretend that I thought of it!

Zac Johnson

I think it would be fun to run a blog / web sites like ESPN or TMZ. It would be a completely different world than online marketing, and you’d be able to make some amazing contacts and always get hooked up with VIP passes and fun events!

Next Week: Is there anything about your blog design that matches your personality? (fonts, colors, header) and why?

    I knew I liked Maggie Fox for a good reason.

  • TrafficColeman

    Maybe Chris..because I like his blog and style..and I can just a little of my 2cents to it.

  • Deb Ng

    If I had the talent I’d take over The Oatmeal. It never fails to put a smile on my face – and it’s always spot on.

  • Zac Johnson

    Thanks for the inclusion. Fun idea for a post!

  • Jeff

    I would like to take over Pat Flynns The Smart Passive Income . What a great blog he has, and his Podcasts are awesome also.
