VMGuru.nl #4 Favorite Independent Blog

Last month we asked to vote for us if you appreciated our blog and apparently a lot of you did.

This year almost 1.300 votes were recorded compared to 1.200 last year, also the total number of blogs on the list increased from 187 to 243 blogs to choose from. There were over 80 new blogs on the ballot and 4 new blogs made it into the top 25. The enormous number of VMware blogs makes it so much tougher to get in the top 25.

So unfortunately we dropped from the 19th to the 31st spot on the list.




Besides that there are tons of bloggers from VMware or VMware/virtualization-related companies which create excellent content, so that a top 25 spot for an independent blogger seems impossible. Luckily Eric created a separate category for that and guess what?

You voted us as 4th Favorite Independant VMware blog! THANK YOU!




As independent bloggers we are very proud and honored that VMGuru.nl finished #4 in this competitive environment. Thanks to Eric Siebert’s for organizing this yearly blogger contest on vSphere-land.com. 

We appreciate your votes and ongoing support and want to thank all who voted for us!!!
