Every year, a group of people announces the Top vBlogs of the past year. This time, Eric Siebert, John Troyer, Eric Wright, and Angelo Luciani did the announcement. The Top vBlog 2018 was sponsored by turbonomic. And to be honest, I was slightly surprised.
First of all, congratulations to the Top 10 vBlogs out there in the vCommunity! You did a great job on writing helpful blog posts, helping people with your guides and letting people know what’s going on in the tech field. I’d like to mention the Top 10 vBlogs at that point:

But what is it all about the Top vBlogs?
In order to have your own blog in the elections, you have to opt-in for that. Reach out to Eric Siebert for more information, or keep an eye open for the Top vBlog 2019 openings. There’s much going on, and information will be shared as soon as possible.
Longevity, Length, Frequency, Quality. Only four words but they describe it very good. A blog requires dedication, time and effort. Good bloggers keep the stuff going regardless of what is happening in their life. A short blog post without much content is done quickly, but the good bloggers out there are working hard to make good and long blog posts with as many details as possible, mostly after work in the late evening hours. It doesn’t matter if you post daily or weekly. It’s a combination of the frequency and length, and it’s the content. As mentioned before, blogging takes time and effort. But it’s not only how often you post stuff, or how long your blog posts are. It’s the quality that matters. Helpful articles, great guides and stuff like that. Publish unique content or let us know your own focus on a specific topic.
And the surprise
For this year (well, actually last year), there was a surprise for me. My blog made it on the list the first time! Thank you all for voting for me! You have to scroll down a little, and a little more and there you can find me. I’m at least in the Top 160 😉
