As has become an annual staple in the IT/virtualization/storage industry, it’s time once again for the voting of the best blogs in the industry, ranked by you, our readers, peers, and industry experts.
For the first time, DatacenterDude.com has been included in the process, and it would be great if I could encourage you, my readership to participate in the process.
2012 was a great year for us. We had an entire series on Clustered ONTAP, several guest posts, and fired up a brand new NetApp Communities Podcast.
I sincerely hope you’re enjoying the content we’re putting out. We would like to keep doing so, and certainly plan to, and we would certainly appreciate your nod of confidence in placing a vote in our favor. You get ten of them!
Please vote before March 1st!
You can vote here: vSphere-Land.com 2013 Top Blogs Poll (Thanks to TrainSignal for sponsoring the voting platform!)
Here are some things to note, quoted from the vSphere-Land.com post:
- You can pick 10 of your favorite blogs and also rank them in your order of preference after you pick your 10. The results will be weighted with #1 ranking getting 10 points and #10 rankings getting 1 point. Point totals will be tabulated and from them the top 50 will be determined.
- Blogs are listed on the ballot in alphabetical order, the current top 50 blogs are highlighted with their current ranking in parentheses, the current top 10 are also bolded so they stand out. So please go through the whole list when making your choices (Duncan ended up on the bottom).
- Again this year we also having voting in special categories to help distinguish certain types of blogs. The choices of which blogs to include in the categories was the result of this survey and my best guessing. I did cut down on some of the categories this year to keep it simple. The categories are independent of the general voting so first pick and rank your top 10 overall favorite blogs and then choose your favorite blog in each category.
- Voting will run until 3/1, afterwards the results will be determined and announced on a special vChat episode with myself, Simon Seagrave, David Davis and John Troyer.
- Duplicate vote protection is enabled, we’ll be using geolocation, IP addresses & cookies to protect against duplicate votes. This isn’t Chicago, please be honest and fair when voting, any suspicious votes will be tossed.
- If you are not familiar with a blog you can click on it in the survey to view it or use my vLaunchpad to see links to them all. Try not to pick blogs based just on names but also take content into account. There are a lot of good blogs currently not in the top 50 that deserve to be there.
