Mario Sundar's Speakeasy

Spero Ventures. Early LinkedIn, Twitter. These are my thoughts on tech, brand, marketing and community.

Top 25. Check. TechMeme’d. Check.

My fascination for the Viral Garden‘s Top 25 Marketing Blogs started over a couple of months back, and shortly thereafter became more pronounced with my vow to find myself in it, when I grow up! The Top 25 rankings are assiduously maintained by our fellow marketing blogger and a great friend of mine; the Viral Gardener himself, Mack Collier with some great support from the Alexa rankings.

Imagine my surprise that after a few months of intense blogging, I’ve finally made it into the Top 25, “making one of the biggest debuts ever, coming in at #19“. What makes it even better is the fact that MarketingProfs’ Daily Fix, where I contribute, made it into the Top 10. Way to go, Ann!

On my wishlist, I also aspired – “to be on TechMeme” and my wish was granted a few weeks ago following the TechCrunch party when my post was TechMemed, although they spelt my blog wrong. In related news, my goal to crack the Technorati 100,000 is surpassed by my current ranking that hovers around 35,000. I have miles to go as a blogger, but the crazy overtime spent online is more than compensated by the fact that I’ve found a few fellow marketing maniacs.

Congratulations to Ann Handley, Karl Long, David Armano, Ben & Jackie at the Church of the Customer, who’ve all made huge strides in the Top 25. Thanks to Eric for his kind words and Kudos to Mack for maintaining the ranking, which is a great source of inspiration for all marketing & advertising bloggers. And of course, THANKS to all the readers for continuing to read!

Signing off. Mario.

    I’m now an ardent reader of your blog. Actually, I’m thinkin of a counter-post to your Pinko Marketing post.

    Talk to you soon. Hopefully, we should meet up at some party soon enough…
