Top Of The Berkshire Blogs - May 2010

It's back! It's more competitive than ever! Check out the risers and the fallers with Reading List's exclusive chart of the top blogs in the area!

Of course no ranking system will ever be definitive so don't forget to tell us about your blog in the comments section if you think we may have missed it - then it too can be added to the Wikio directory - the more the merrier!

Here's a rundown of the Top10 for April2010:

1 (=) - Mark Reckons
2 (=) - John Redwood's Diary
3 (=) - Boulton & Co
4 (=) - left outside
5 (+1) - Liberal Burblings
6 (-1) - Bracknell Blog
7 (+1) - Another Green World
8 (-1) - The Salted Slug
9 (+1) - Reading List
10 (-1) - The Cartoon Church

Check out the full chart for May 2010.

You can compare it with last month's top10.


It was a quiet month following the general election for the Berkshire blogosphere with only one of the top ten recording a rise. In the mid-rankings however the community held firm with 23 blogs standing inside the national top1000 as 13 blogs fell off the chart with 2 new entries and 3 re-entries. In total the chart includes 148 blogs.

The award for the biggest climber goes to Rob Fisher for his eponymously-titled blog, which climbed a remarkable 19,171 places nationally to hover just outside Berkshire's top20.

May's other significant movers were Want to be a free thinker, but still a nice person (up 1,115 positions from 55th to 32nd), Reading Geek Night (up 1,541 positions from 72nd to 57th) and Sporting Reflections (up 1,082 positions from 79th to 67th).

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 the risers and fallers in next month's list!
