Adrants to Crush AdFreak In 'Battle of the Ad Blogs'

badgeallw.jpg

We were going to sit back and take the high road on this competition, letting things flow organically but, what the hell, AdFreak isn't and the competition is a battle after all so we're bringing out the guns. Let's show the industry a small upstart like Adrants can crush the big VNU-backed AdFreak. But let's remember it's all in good fun. To bring you up to speed, Adrants was named a contender in AdLand's Battle of the Ad Blogs in the Best Commercial Ad Blog category. We are joined in that category by some other very fine ad blogs including Adhurl, AdJab, the aforementioned AdFreak, MarketingVOX, The Spunker and Fast Company. We're honored to be among such a fine collection of fellow advertising opinionites but we're confident Adrants readers will rally to the cause of standing up for the little guy...even though we're not really all that little anymore, mind you.

So drag your mouse over to the Battle of the Ad Blogs, scroll down to the Best Commercial Ad Blog category, vote for Adrants and smoke AdFreak's ass.

Adrants has my vote.

Except, as per your bloggers are just writers rant, shouldn't I just be able to vote for you in the "Battle of the Ad Media"? AdRants vs. the ad magazines? That'd be a fun race.

That you should, Greg but we'll have to wait a while for all this blog hype to wear off:-)

My vote goes to Ad Rants. But what about best topical ad blog? I think we already know the winner.

With 43% of the vote, I think the public has spoken.
