First, a clarification. I've changed the format of the listings a bit starting this week. Previously I had the blog's name, then it's Alexa ranking, and THEN it's position last week in the Top 25, and then finally, how many spots up or down its Alexa ranking moved. I have no idea why I never noticed this, but obviously the movement of the Alexa ranking needs to come right after the current Alexa ranking, and that should save some confusion going forward. No idea why I never spotted this before.
As for the countdown itself, this list was surprisingly strong, with 16 blogs having positive weeks. Kathy Sierra's Creating Passionate Users had another strong week and is on the verge of having its Alexa score dip under 15K. Past CPU, Mike Sansone's Converstations continues to burn up the Top 10, and has another huge week. If his winning streak continues, Converstations could give CoolZ0r a run for its money in a few weeks.
Past the Top 10, an easily identifiable gap has developed between the Top 15 blogs and #16-25. But only 52K in Alexa ranking separates the final 10 blogs. Pro Hip-Hop had a nice week to hold-off Make Marketing History, which just continues its torrid pace. BMA barely stayed in the Top 25 last week, but rebounds nicely to have the biggest jump of the week.
No new blogs, but the 'Z-List' meme had a serious affect on almost every blog. Drew's Marketing Minute came within a whisker of making the list, and if the meme is still running strong by next Weds, we could see as many as 3-4 new entries because of it.
As always, next update is next Wednesday.

Mack - ditto to what our masi guy friend said. thanks for the time and effort to keep this list rollin' on. and thanks for the fun memes that are more than an a-b-c or z list of bloggers .. but are helping to build community and make the biz blogsphere a little less fragmented. a virtual toast to more in 2007!

Mack, I just want to thank you for starting the z-list. What a great idea and since my blog was included along the way, I have reaped some of the blessings. Keep up the great work here. What would you rate as the best thing you have done as a blogger?
