Eric Siebert (from has open again (see the related post of previous year), a contest for voting the ‘Top VMware & Virtualization Blogs’. This contest is becoming a recurring and estemeed in the VMware & virtualization world (see also the history of the top blog voting over the years).

As he points out in his post, there are now over 300 blogs dedicated to VMware and Virtualization – this is definitely an impressive number which is a real indication to how passionate people feel towards the VMware range of products and virtualization in general.

The voting runs 17th March 2014 with only one round of voting being allowed per IP address – so those of you using a corporate Internet connection, get in early.

You can vote for your top 10 favorite VMware & virtualization blogs: on the first page you will be able to select your 10 favorite blogs and on the following page will be allowed to rank them in your preference order.

Also this year there is a way to voting in special categories to help distinguish certain types of blogs. The categories are independent of the general voting so first pick and rank your top 10 overall favorite blogs and then choose your favorite blog in each category.

This year there will be drawings for some great prize giveaways courtesy of Veeam that include Nexus tablets, iWatches, headphones and more. Anyone that votes for the top blogs is eligible to win one of the prizes. In addition any blogger that makes the top 50 blog list is eligible to win prizes. Winners will be determined by a random drawing and announced on a special live results podcast after the voting ends.

About the voting criteria, I suggest to read this post (of previous year, but still valid): Please do not vote for Me! Also interesting the post of this year: Let’s Do It Differently – Voting Time. Again…
