Somewhat moribund this month. Like the American pop charts always seem to be.

An ↑ means a blog's traffic has gone up by 15% or more in the past month, and a ↓ means it's gone down 15%.


Top 10 UK Ad Blogs (world

8   (re-)Fish N Chimps1.4m
9   (9)TV's Worst Adverts1.5m
10 (10)Life Moves Pretty Fast1.6m


And an almost implausibly static UK chart. Were it not for the mysterious re-entry of Fish N Chimps, it would be completely unchanged.

UK means UK-based. Ad blog means ad blogs not marketing blogs, so that excludes Gapingvoid. Although Paul Colman is now a planner at W&K, and even smiling apparently, he doesn't class Life In The Middle as an ad blog and Russell Davies no longer blogs about advertising. He does write about it in Campaign though. Great column. Also, I'm only counting English language blogs.

If I've missed anyone out, please tell me and I'll put them in next month.
