vSphere Land Announces Top 25 Virtualization Bloggers

Eric Siebert and vSphere Land just announced the results for their Top 25 Virtualization Bloggers vote. We’re impressed by the voting turnout, and can’t argue with the results: Every one is a great VMware resource! We’re especially pleased that Gestalt IT is so well-represented, with three of our authors making the list!

We went ahead and created a Top-25-v12n-bloggers Twitter List of all 22 who use it, so you can easily follow them all!
