I'm not entirely sure what the point of Klout is, other than some sort of ego-boosting tool or bragging device, which, frankly, I'm okay with. I like having my ego stroked. I'm really not sure what a "good" score is, I think I tend to hang out somewhere in the middle/upper-middle? I added a bunch of other networks in addition to Twitter but it really didn't seem to affect my score much, so I suspect that Twitter is a major player in how the score is calculated.

Anyway, here's a screenshot of my Klout score today:

Here are the things that I am (supposedly) influential about:


All of these make me sound really cool, right? And most of them are things that I tend to be quite interested in. The one that baffles me, though, is "Chicago." Seeing as how I have NEVER BEEN THERE. I'm wondering if it picked up on the fact that I was really, really sad about not being able to go this month, as my planned visit to meet/hang out with Maria while also conveniently lurking around the 20SB Summit to hang out with some of my Vegas bloggy peeps all fell through due to monetary issues and the lack of having any thereof.

Otherwise, I've got no clue.

But if you want to know something about Iowa, I'm definitely your girl.

What are YOU influential in?

I'm influential about parenting. WTF? Not as weird as Maxie though who is influential about Sarah Palin. I gave her +K on it today.

Maria said...

That's my face! Also, I think there's a REASON it keeps mentioning Chicago.... ;)

I just gave you +K on Iowa.

And I'm influential about cats, military, birds, parenting and cars. At least half of these things make no sense at all.

Apparently you're an influencer of me. I was unaware of this, but, um, thanks?

If I needed to know something about Iowa I'd come to you for answers. Which means, Klout is indeed klout-tastic and very helpful. With life, and stuff.

I am influential about (whatever the fuck that means) Iowa, photography, facebook, vegetarianism, restaurants and food. Eat much, Steph?!
