Ad & Marketing Blogs Multiply Like Rabbits

I must admit I’ve been slow to warm up to the Ad Age 150. Mainly because of where AdPulp was ranked.

But now that we’re climbing and will hopefully gain a footing in the top 50, I’m open to reconsidering the merits of such a system ;->
The fact is popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. But popular does lend itself to monetization, which we’re interested in.
So what do you think? Should we adorn this shiny new layout with a badge that brags?

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.

    Congrats! You have to “toot your own horn,” too few others will do it for you. GSS

  2. David-
    This is awesome.
    You deserve it.
    I submitted my blog for consideration yesterday. I’ll be lucky to break 500!

  3. Thanks Gary and Steffan.
    We were #52 when I wrote this post yesterday, which was six spots up from #58. Today, we’re #45. Lots of fluidity to this thing. But it all seems to be going in the right direction for us, so I’m grateful for that.

  4. Sure, why not. I threw a basic one on the bottom of my sidebar links when I got on it.

  5. I say do it. If it feels too much like bragging, just balance it out with a badge for something more altruistic. That way, you get some recognition and a worthy cause might get a few more donations.
