Top vBlog 2016: Aussie (vMafia) Representation

The Top vBlog for 2016 Results where announced a couple of nights ago and Australia had an ok representation this year, though the number of active bloggers on the list has decreased from last year. There where 321 blogs listed at vSphere-Land.com. I know of a lot more bloggers locally so if you have a chance head over and register your site on the list ready for next year’s revamp.

I’ve pulled out the Aussie Blogs and listed them below…Those with the Rank highlighted in Red are contributors to the @aussvMafia site with myself, Craig Waters, Rene Van Den Bedem and @JoshOdgers taking out a Top 50 spots this year. Those not familiar with Aussie vMafia, head here and take advantage of one of the best aggregation sites focused on VMware Vitualization going round. Great to also see three new blogs appear in the list as well.

Virtualization is Life! managed to jump up 61 places from last year to #44 which is a great feeling and humble reward for the work I put into this site. It also shows that there is strong interest in vCloud Director, NSX and the vCloud Air Network in general. The list of bloggers that are ranked higher (and lower) shows the extraordinary power of community generated content. There is quality throughout!

Thanks again to Eric Siebert for taking his time to go through the process and organise the voting and all the good and bad that goes with that…and thanks to all that voted!
