Stings, doesn’t it?
Whenever a popular blog quotes an expert in your niche, you feel a little pang of envy.
And you can’t help thinking…
Why not me?
And it’s a good question.
Why did that person get asked for their opinion and not you?
After all, they’re no smarter than you. No more experienced than you. No more interesting than you.
But for some reason they received that call (or email or tweet) instead of you.
Which means they earned yet another mention on a popular blog, while you’re left feeling like a nobody.
And you start to wonder…
Why do the same small set of individuals crop up time and time again online?
Do they all belong to some secret experts club that gives them access to all the best opportunities?
And if so, how do you get to be a member?
