No English Spoken Here
06 Dec 2004
Deutsche Welle has announced the recipients of their 2004 Weblog Awards, with two awards in each category, one chosen by a jury and the other in an online vote. Interesting is that none of the winners of the main categories are written in English. I guess English speakers really are a minority in the world.
Some don't see the point, but that's OK. I still think it's a useful exercise that enables us to see what blogs elsewhere are doing, even if we don't know the language.
However, since DW seems unable to provide a concise list of the main winners, here's a list with links to both the descriptions at DW and the blogs themselves that they can copy and paste. I even corrected some the the URLs. :-)
