I don’t know what to say even, I was very surprised I won the Top vBlog voting this year. I do want to thank everyone who voted for me, it is very humbling that after 9 years of blogging I am still listed that high. 8 consecutive times right now, it is literally insane. Especially considering the enormous amount of quality blogs listed, people like Cormac Hogan, Frank Denneman, Chris Wahl, Scott Lowe and of course William Lam are folks I really respect for the unique quality content they constantly produce. Anyway, thanks everyone for voting, I truly appreciate it.
Eric Siebert (vSphere-Land) just published the results of the best VMware/Virtualization blog election today. Just like last year Eric rounded up the gang and recorded a very special edition of vChat. This edition features Eric Siebert together with Simon Seagrave, David Davis and John Troyer. During the vChat Eric and crew announce the Top 25 and comment on each and every single blog out there, they also announced the winners in the new categories that Eric created!
I would like to thank everyone for voting for me again. I am honored to be part of the list and humbled to be voted number 1 amongst so many excellent blogs, especially when listed with old-timers like Mike “RTFM” Laverick and Eric “Scoop” Sloof.
I want to take this opportunity to congratulate a couple of “newcomers” who’s content I’ve highly enjoyed this year. Starting with Mr Chris “vCloud” Colotti… he entered the top 25 this year at spot 21. If you weren’t following his blog, make sure you do! Of course I cannot forget the newcomers category itself, great work by Barry Coombs, Josh Atwell and Andrea “the giant” Mauro.
Let me repeat what was mentioned at the end of top 25 list… all these bloggers are really approachable. If they present at a VMUG, if you see them walking around at VMworld / PEX / any other event don’t hesitate to step up and introduce yourself. Believe me, it is great to talk to readers and get feedback or just have a chat!
Once again thanks for voting! Make sure you watch that webcast. I loved every second of it.
