New at 14 this month, ViralBlog. Sample quote: "As ViralBlogger I get offered so many “wanna be” virals. Most of these virals are cheap rubbish and not hilarious, horrifying or horny at all." It's a nice blog, perhaps I'll write a post about it soon.

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%.
I’ve decided to take Knitware out of the chart as, even though it’s run by some people here at BBH, and is really good, it is shaping up to be more about the interface between brands and technology than about advertising.
Meanwhile Spinning Around, which is supposed to be about PR, seems to me to be mostly about advertising. So I’m putting them in.
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 has sadly ceased blogging. Russell Davies no longer blogs about advertising, although his Campaign column is just great, isn’t it? I'm only counting English language blogs.
If I've missed anyone out, please tell me and I'll put them in next time. The next chart will be end of June as I'm switching it to quarterly from now on.
