"my bloggers"?

How are these blogs related to you?

It's a convenient shorthand for "bloggers whose websites I host at my own expense because I like and admire their sites".

@Jacques, the people who host blogs on your network are lucky :-). I wish more businesses emulate the good example you are setting by thinking about your "customers" success...

Curious why people are downvoting. This is a legitimate question. He refers to these bloggers paternalistically and seems to take some credit for their work, but doesn't actually specify his relationship.

Good for him for sponsoring people, but it's a bit odd to imply he's deserving of any credit for their work simply for hosting a Wordpress instance. If they are paid employees, then that might be more appropriate, though still odd.

I thought it was a legitimate question too.
