    You could be popular in a group of ten people or millions, depending on what you're trying to achieve. A blog in a small niche, such as LEGO, can be very popular with a relatively small audience while a video gaming blog is a small fish in a much bigger pond.

    So really, being popular is relative. A popular blog can be considered so even if they don't rival the sites that top Alexa and the other traffic metrics sources out there.
