Top vBlog 2015 Full results

top vblog 2015-1-smaller

So the voting has ended, the results have been tabulated and here they are. There were almost 90 new blogs on the ballot this year and 3 new blogs to make the top 25. This year there was over 2200 votes compared to around 1400 last year. You can read more stats about this years voting here. Voters were asked to pick their top 10 favorite blogs and them rank them from 1 to 10. The votes are weighted so a #1 vote is worth 10 points, a #2 vote is worth 9 points all the way down to a #10 vote being worth 1 point. The total points for each blog were added up to determine the results.

If you missed the live results show be sure and watch the replay of the special Google Hangout awards episode that we recorded with Simon Seagrave, John Troyer  and Scott Davis from Infinio as we count up the top 25 winners with lots of color commentary. The vLaunchpad and Planet vSphere-land will be updated soon to reflect the new voting results. Thank you everyone who voted and congratulations to the winners. With so many bloggers out there its a tough scene but I seriously encourage you all to keep at it, the longer you stick with it, the more people notice and will reward you with their vote. You guys are all winners, I know how hard it can be to find the time to blog but do know that your efforts are appreciated and your unselfish dedication makes a difference to a great many of people.

This year any blogger that made the Top 50 will get a special 2″ commemorative coin courtesy of Infinio, I’ll have a form where you can enter your shipping details up in a few days. Bloggers who make the top 10 will get a gold coin, 11-25 a silver coin and 26-50 a copper coin. Also if you’d like a free metal holder for your coin go to this post and re-tweet it. Finally we have another vendor jumping in to get you all a cool metal holder ring with lanyard so you can proudly wear your coin around your neck at VMware events, more details on that soon.

Special thanks to Infinio for sponsoring this year and making the giveaways possible.

    Nice work, but how are the points calculated? From the table, there are 1923 total Votes (#1 Votes, assuming everyone has a #1). Also everyone is worh 55 points (10+9+…+1=55). 1923*55 is 105765, but there are 115952 points in the table. Where do that points came from?

  1. Some suspicious votes get tossed which impacts the point totals from adding up perfectly

  2. Great list. Thanks for taking the time digging into the internet and bringing such useful and organized information.

    Yes, I do like to know your scoring process.
