Who writes the most influential blogs on education in the UK?

I have been dubious about rankings for a number of years. So, why is this? Well, as prolific blogger @McLeod says here;

  • It’s probably going to make some people angry,
  • It’s probably going to discourage some people, and the chances are …
  • It’s missed some people.

Nonetheless, if recognition comes your way, you should not ‘bite the hand that feeds you’.

Vuelio blog rankings list the most influential blogs across a variety of topics and interests found in the database, ranked according to various datapoints in the index. We started publishing blog rankings in 2008, and since then the method by which we determine influence has been in constant evolution. How does it work? Vuelio uses a proprietary algorithm to rank all the media in our database. For the rankings, we put (usually) the ten most influential blogs in order, after the automated results have been carefully reviewed by our team of in-house researchers. The methodology takes into consideration a number of factors including social sharing, topic-related content, post frequency, social media influence, traffic, design and interactivity. (Source)

It is wonderful to be recognised for the countless hours I spend online and in front of a computer. And of course to you my readers, thank you to you too. If you’re interested in starting to blog, you can read my 10 Tips for Blogging Teachers.

Blogging has opened so many doors for me. Just look at the awards ceremony last year!
