MAM #4 in Top 25 UK Arts & Culture Blogs

I knew my blog was doing well in terms of readership but I got a very pleasant surprise this morning to find that Making A Mark has been rated #4 in the Top 25 UK Art And Culture Blogs. It's even beaten the art blogs produced by the top national newspapers!!!

I was even more pleased when I realised that, unlike some I've seen, this listing has actually been produced by a team who've used proper research across a range of relevant criteria and then produced an algorithm for weighting them! The site behind the listing is This is the website created by a very reputable organanisation - the Manchester Museums Consortium, which covers a group of nine museums and galleries in Manchester (more about this tomorrow as I've not come across their site before).
