Oh You Lucky Bloggers May 50


You may have noticed we’ve taken a month off from compiling our list of top 50 blogs. This was mostly to allow us some more time to simply read all the fantastic blogs from March’s update. And there are certainly some great blogs on the list, so many in fact, that we’ve not done much else this month (ssshh, please don’t tell the boss).

But all good things must come to an end as they say, and it was soon time to start compiling our next Top 50 chart. This meant of course we had to do a whole lot more reading, perhaps therefore dispelling the myth that all good things must come to an end.

As you might imagine, it’s quite a task to visit, read and enjoy every single blog on our list, especially when we take into account all the great suggestions you’ve been making in the comments too. This month we also have some new entries to the chart, including Rambling Spoon and Beauty and the Dirt which are well worth your attention.

If you’ve made it onto the chart and would like to join our private social network just drop us a line on twitter (@lastminute_com) and we’ll send you an invite. This will give you the opportunity to receive products for review, to hear the latest company news, affiliate deals and more.

If you are not on the list and would like your blog to be considered for our next update, do let us know in the comments. We’d also love to hear if you agree with any of our choices too.

Well, it’s time to sit back, relax and start reading all the great blogs from our Oh You Lucky Bloggers top 50 May update…

  1. Hello,

    Some great blogs on your list and good to have such calibre in one list. You should check out Bon Vivant’s blog at the link below for news on London’s bar and restaurant scene, include new openings, special offers, ‘best of’ and ‘top 10′ lists, as well as a weekly summary of the critics’ restaurant reviews:


    Many thanks,

  2. Hey guys!

    This is a great idea and I hope my blog could be considered! I launched The Cultural Exposé in April – and it’s aimed at urban adventurers who are into travel and lifestyle, and want to know interesting things they can do in and out of London. I shoot everything myself (I’m a photographer) and I even started a new series recently called TIMOC (Tourist In My Own City). You can check out my blog here: http://www.theculturalexpose.co.uk

    Thanks x

  4. I discovered your blog site on google and check a few of your early posts. Continue to keep up the very good operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Seeking forward to reading more from you later on!…

  5. I routinely lead my caorgtey of News in votes, but my readership is small by American standards (moderate to large by Canadian standards). I have a vote link at the top of my main page as well as the sidebar which helps. I’d recommend FuelMyBlog a lot more, but the main page loads, and has a complicated interface that works on flashy instead of functional . Many bloggers like that, but News readers tend not to, so I only get about 10 clicks a month from Fuel’s main page. I got more when my photo was in the Window competition.I’d be in favour of resetting the votes, since those who earned it, will quickly earn their votes back. Did you mean though you’re going to require voters to sign in? I can tell you right now, my votes are going to go down to nearly 0, with me maybe not even giving a daily vote for myself if I have to sign up for yet another website.
