Check out the full chart for the month.


Apologies for a late release of the chart - we know how much it is anticipated.

March was a topsy-turvy month as a the better local blogs began to sort themselves out, while there was also a larger than usual number of big climbers. But the big news must be the big scrap that is emerging with six of the top ten so closely positioned.

BBC South political correspondent Peter Henley's Hustings claims the award for the biggest climber of the month, although it was only a matter of time before his national platform enabled him to start climbing towards the upper reaches of the chart. He gained 19,862 places to reach #32.

This was closely followed by Reading Liberal Youth (up 19,825 spots to #40) and Reading's MYP Josh Harsant (up 19,031 to #52).

Not quite managing to keep pace with those achievements were Narrowboat Zulu Warrior and The Sourceress both gaining over 15,000 rungs on the ladder to occupy 49th and 67th respectively.

Other significant climbers were Sheabutter Cottage, The Flashing Blade, Cat's Blog and Greenconstructionuk all moving up by more than 1,000 places.

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!
