Top of the Berkshire Blogs - July 2009

There have been some significant movers since last month.

Mark Reckons continues his astonishing march up the charts by overtaking Wokingham's Conservative MP to become the No1 Berkshire blogger - and it looks like he's not stopping there!

Nationally-renowned communications professional Neville Hobson jumps into the top-5, while Cllr Dave Luckett makes a spectacular leap (90%) as the main beneficiary of the scoop interview fed to Conservatives by BBC Berkshire presenter Andew Peach which had Labour candidate Naz Sarkar digging himself into a hole.

Elizabeth Thomas, Tony Partridge, June Stoute, The Rock God and Flashing Blade all got into the swing of things with significant rises, but overall the main theme appears to be the continuing consolidation over the top of the chart by elected politicians as demonstrated by Thatcham's Cllr Lee Dillon.

But less of the preambles - here's the ranked list according to Wikio: -

Of course no ranking system will ever be definitive so Reading List encourages all bloggers to participate and apply to add their blog to the Wikio directory - the more the merrier.

If you are a Berkshire blogger or you know of a site you think we may have missed, please let us know in the comments section.

  2. In a non-spatial sense you most definitely are, thank YOU very much, just by dint of being a regular commentator on local issues and your historical connections (of which I'd've thought you'd be proud, and considering you can't escape that fact you don't really have much choice).

    Anyway it's my list, so it's my rules. There's just no gratitude from some people!

  5. Those on the above chart are less than a third of the total I've collected on my Reading List, but I guess only those who decided to add themselves are the ones who take blogging seriously.
