Top Corporate BlogsTwo months ago we held a corporate blogging webinar with HubSpot and brought in some industry leading experts to answer your questions.

One month ago, from feedback at that webinar, we launched the Top 10 Corporate Blog Awards. The goal of these user nominated awards is to help find best-of-the-best examples of businesses using blogging for real results.

    Thank you Social Fresh. This is a tremendous affirmation for us and an honor. I find great value in the materials, information and education you share. Our success is in large part attributable to what you’re doing. Thank you Paula, Josh, Kipp and Tom for taking the time to evaluate our blog and for your body of work too. I am  grateful to your contributions in this. You’ve gotten my heart racing today, so much so that I may not be fully present when my sister-in-law has her baby today. Oops! – Chris Giovagnoni

    So fantastic to see Compassion Interational in the Top 10!  It’s such a great blog.

    The list seems pretty accurate! I wonder where mint.com and okcupid.com falls, they only post a few times a week or even once a month, but whenever they do it shows all the signs of quality blogging!

    We knew going in some great blogs would be left out just from not being nominated. Hopefully our reach will capture more of them the next time we do this.

    Thanks. Their community was very active in our comments. We had no control over the winners but are pretty happy to see their active community rewarded.

    Thanks Chris. I was really excited to see a non-profit score so well. Really you guys are the only non-tech/social blog on the list. That should say a lot about what you are doing. 

    Maybe we need to have you guys contribute a post on what you have learned along the way.

    I’d be happy to do so.  - Chris

     The email nominations/suggestions are also worthy a read as the rationale in awarding the winners. Lots of good stuff to ponder there.

    Congratulations to the Top 10 Corporate Blog
    winners, I was disappointed to not see the Capgemini Customer Experience blog
    in the awards this time round, but we’ll be working hard next time to increase
    our nominations and push for an award.

    Publishing a top 10 list is a great way to generate linkbait!   The badge is already on the Webtrends blog. Great summary here, Jason!

  • http://twitter.com/belllindsay Lindsay Bell

    Yay! Sharing the top ten with amazing blogs, what an honour to be included! 

  • http://www.walkwiththewise.wordpress.com Gail

    Great to see an awesome NFO like Compassion International on the list. Their blog is the one I visit the most regularly as they have inspirational posts about how individuals can change the world :)

    Congrats to SEOMOZ and rest of the bloggers

  • http://www.ThePoised.com Thom Holland

    I was thinking the same thing Jason.

  • http://www.everythingmatterstoday.com Eric Evans

    I’m extremely impressed that Compassion International did score so well.  They are definitely one of the best inspiring blogs I read.  I frequent SEOMoz on a daily basis.  (that’s probably because I’m an SEO myself)  I’m super stoked that SEOMoz was top dog!

  • http://investinsocial.com Jason Keath

    Thank Eric. Both of those sites, while completely different, were very deserving. Thanks for stoping by.

    tell you, I usually get irked when folks discuss issues that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and explained out everything without complication. Maybe, people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. corporate awards
