If we must aim to be on a listicle, let it be this one: the New York Observer’s 2011 Media Poachables list.

Repeat to yourself now: “I’ll be a better writer.  I’ll be a better blogger.  I’ll be a better writer.  I’ll be a better blogger.  I’ll be a better writer.  I’ll be a better blogger.  I’ll be a better writer.  I’ll be a better blogger.  I’ll be a better writer.  I’ll be a better blogger.”

Also, there are a couple of Tumblrers on this list.  That’s your inspiration for the day.
