Advertising Sites and Blogs Update

Here’s some link love for advertising sites and blogs from around the world. I’ve included where possible the names of the people behind the sites, the country, and the Alexa ranking. Alexa ranking measures popularity based on the number of people with an Alexa toolbar (usually techies) who visit each site, the smaller the number the more popular the site. Those with and addresses only recently have been able to start measuring Alexa ranking as Google and WordPress are regarded as the owners of those domains – and so their rankings are not too accurate at this point. To add your site or amend details here, leave your name and site address in the comments below.
