Thanks to Eric Siebert for the great work he has been doing in listing the Top Virtualization blog post at http://vsphere-land.com since 2008. Written and updated constantly in support of the great community around VMware and virtualization that has been adopted.
This year he has over 300 blogs listed. You should keep in mind several factors when voting, such as longevity, length of content, frequency, and quality. Voting is now open, and will continue through 3/17/2014. I am really glad and humbled to be taking part in the top virtualization blog this year for the first time. I would really appreciate if you could vote and support me.
