Oooh different methodology to the pioneer blog rankings...any reason why?

Should've put my name in before turning 21, but with age comes more reason...right?

(Good luck keeping up with everyone's birthdays now!)

You should definitely have Pete Williams' blog www.PReneurMarketing.com on this list - The dude is 27 and kicking major goals - was just announced as 1 of 3 global finalists in the JCI Create Young Entrepreneur Awards for 2009.
