Big shock this month.
The reigning No.1 - Houtlust - has ceased publishing. Not sure why. But he promises to return at some future date.
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|
|1 (1)||Welcome To Optimism||465,353||↓|
|7 (7)||Northern Planner||1.1m||↑|
|8 (5)||Living Brands||1.4m||↓|
|9 (new)||Dan Germain||1.6m|
|10 (new)||TV's Worst Adverts||1.7m|
A well-established blog but new to this chart is Iain Tait's Crackunit, a veritable beacon of quality content.
New in at No.9 this month is Dan Germain's blog, with the tagline "creative stuff, milky baby breath and some other rubbish". As you would expect from the man behind much of the wonderful stuff produced by Innocent Drinks, Dan's blog is warm, witty, creative, and shot-through with childlike wonder.
And new at No.10 is the blog that bites the hand that feeds us, TV's Worst Adverts.
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 insists he no longer blogs 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.
