The always-stimulating Talent Imitates, Genius Steals is no longer in the UK chart because writer Faris has embarked on a new adventure in the US. Good luck in NYC, Faris.
Meanwhile, Rachel Clarke has made the reverse journey, so her Behind The Buzz joins the UK chart.
This month also sees a first appearance for a relatively new blog - Knitware. It’s run by some people here at BBH, so in order to avoid allegations of nepotism, I haven’t written about it before. But now that it’s ‘made the charts’, I think it's over-due a mention. Billed as ‘where brands, content and technology collide’ there are some very smart people contributing to it. Indeed, my sole post on there – about space invader-patterned scarfs – is embarrassingly trivial. Go check it out, and let me know what you think.
UK means UK-based. Ad blog means ad blogs not marketing blogs, so that excludes Gapingvoid. Paul Colman is now a planner at W&K and sadly no longer writes Life In The Middle. Russell Davies no longer blogs about advertising, although his Campaign column is great. I'm only counting English language blogs.
If I've missed anyone out, please tell me and I'll put them in next time.
