Darren Murph, Record-Setting Blogger

By  |  Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 9:34 am

I’m not sure how many blog posts I’ve written–or how many discrete items of prose counting magazine articles, book chapters, and other random stuff. But I’m quite positive the total count would be far less than 17,212, the number that got Engadget’s Darren Murph into the Guinness Book of World Records. (I assume that speedbloggers such as Instapundit have blogged even more, but Murph’s award says it’s for “contracted” blog posts–which I suppose means items that he received individual payment for.)

    Really pushing what qualifies as a "blog post". Copying and pasting a link with a blurb about every stupid little cell phone story that goes by the press release feed (comes to about a dozen per day every day seven days per week since that guy's first post four years ago) is closer to "spam" than blog posting. That kind of garbage is a big reason why I stopped visiting engadget and removed them from my RSS reader. Same with Kotaku. If one douche bag is spanning over a dozen posts per day, imagine what the feed is full of when you add in the other "editors"? (Not to mention, again, what the hell do I care about the constant crappy cell phone coverage for, which is 90% of their content. I care about cell phone coverage for about two weeks every five years and that's it).

    Your link to Instapundit, doesn't. Is that intentional or a simple error ?

    Sorry, glitch on my part, which I just fixed–thanks for noticing.
