up for the cup: april's top posts

You could cut the atmosphere with a knife. Our specialist team of engravers are about to get to work. It's that time again when we announce last month's top post...

Well April has seen a record number of visitors to our little old site. We thanks each and every one of you. And an even bigger thank you goes to last month's contributers - there genuinely were some absolutely brilliant posts and case studies, which meant competition to win the coveted £1 plastic cup was tougher than ever.

So, here goes.

In at number five...

I always feel very slightly fraud-ish when one of ours appears in the list. After all, we could completely cheat and award ourselves all sorts. But fifth was Head of Comms JD2.0 by me.

Shooting in at number four...

Was the excellent and thought-provoking The people using Twitter are changing by Emma Rodgers

Sitting pretty at number three...

Was a great, informative post about graphic recording - Picture This by Claire Holgate.

Tantalisingly close at number two...

Was a tale about a book on the web written fourteen (yes, 14) years ago - 16 points of the cluetrain manifeston comms people need to know by our very own Dan Slee.

and numero uno, top of the pile, cream of a very good crop was...

PR is dead... and just for good measure newspapers are dead too by Eddie Coates-Madden. Which is all a bit unique for us - it's the first post ever to come top on consecutive months, a bit like when Nottingham Forest won the back-to-back European Cups in 1979 and 1980. Well done Eddie.
