Top Of The Berkshire Blogs - December 2009

It's back! It's bigger and better than ever! Check out the risers and the fallers with Reading List's exclusive chart of the best blogs in the area!

Of course no ranking system will ever be definitive so don't forget to tell us about any sites you think we may have missed in the comments section and add them to the Wikio directory - the more the merrier!

Here's a rundown of the Top10 for December 2009:

1 #16 (+4) - Mark Reckons
2 #45 (+9) - John Redwood's Diary
3 #58 (+5) - Boulton & Co
4 #162 (+20) - left outside
5 #182 (+13) - Bracknell Blog
6 #273 (-66) - The Salted Slug
7 #339 (-29) -
8 #379 (+923) - Liberal Burblings
9 #381 (+37) - Reading List
10 #390 (+299) - Redlands Libdems

Read last month's Top10.


A big shake-up took place last month as local bloggers strengthened their positions nationally, making the chart the most competitive yet.

Each of the top five and eight of the top ten rose this month, compared to only one last month. But the headlines must be that three new blogs have broken through and entered into the elite bracket to set a new standard.

Further down, significant risers include gCO2e and Gideon Mack - Orangutan (both gaining 15 places to move into the top25), but the prize for biggest improvement must go to Berkeley Blog for moving up from 69th to 30th.

However it would be a mark of false modesty if I didn't also mention the growing popularity of the Berkshire Blog Review (rising 22 places to 34th), proving that two solid posts in a month is no barrier to gaining an audience.

Kudos to all the local writers out there for making this one of the most vibrant local blogospheres in the country - keep it up and watch out for next month's list!
