Eric Siebert has once again ran his Top 25 VMware Bloggers survey to see who we all agree on to be the best of the best for VMware blogging. The list is spot on to say the least. Coming in at #1 not surprisingly is Duncan Epping and his Yellow Bricks blog. Interestingly the top 5 didn’t change one bit, that is saying a lot because each one of those guys spends a lot of time blogging and each post is really well put together. This just goes to show the passion that people have for VMware and what they do with it in their everyday life. For some of us, its only just a work thing, which is fine. For others it’s blogging about VMware and what we did at work, and for the rest of us, we have home labs, attend VMworld (sometimes both US and EUR) and we blog about it each and every experience we have with it not to mention sharing it all on twitter. That is dedication, and that is what this list of bloggers is all about. The top 25 were announced on a vChat with Eric Siebert, David Davis, Simon Seagrave and John Troyer along with a special introduction from VMware CTO Steve Herrod. Hearing what the CTO of VMware had to say about the blogs goes to show the wide audience that is reading when you blog, so keep it up, you are being heard by some of the top VMware execs!
I was lucky enough to added to this list of bloggers, while I didn’t make the top 25, I never for a second thought I would be included in that list, I did slide just outside the top 50 coming in at #59! I can’t be happier, my blog is only 3 months old and I am shocked to even be included. Here’s another good post from PlanetVM that lists the top 25 with links to their blog and who they work for, really interesting, lots of VMware employees and EMC employees. Thanks to all the voters that voted for me, and thanks to Eric for putting this together as well as Train Signal sponsoring it. Hopefully next year I can squeak into the top 50!
