The Top 8 are unchanged. There's a new entry at 9, the slick 'see the latest good work' site Ad Punch. (N.B. it's not a new site, but it was new to me).
An ↑ means a blog's traffic has gone up by 15% or more in the past month, and a ↓ means it's gone down 15%.

Top 10 UK Ad Blogs (world

8   (9)Faris1.30m
9   (10)Northern Planner1.82m
10  (8)What If...2.19m

The entire UK Top 7 is unchanged. FishNChimps is up more than 15% this month, after going down more than 20% last month. He's all over the place, like a mad woman's piss! Nice blog though.

UK means UK-based. Ad blog means ad blogs not marketing blogs, so that excludes Gapingvoid. Paul Colman doesn't class Life In The Middle as an ad blog and Russell Davies has announced he will no longer blog about advertising. Also, I'm only counting English language blogs.

If I've missed anyone out, please tell me and I'll put them in next month.

FNC pays people to read his blog. I've seen him do it.

What the hell am I doing on this list? It must be disguntled directors marking me for execution...

mad woman's piss - superb, although I'd use that description for my style.

I have a thousand little account execs whose job is to create ephemeral blogs with links to my site.

It's the future.
