Blogs: Deutsche Welle Blog Awards

The Deutsche Welle have announced their international blog awards this morning and the winner is a Spanish-language blog based on the life and times of an Argentinian housewife. Now, my Spanish is limited to ordering two beers and a ham and cheese sandwich, so I can't give an opinion on the winner, apart from to say that it looks very nice, but let's take a look at the winner of the best English language blog, something that I can understand.

The best English language blog goes to Global Voices Online, a project sponsored by Harvard University, and brings together bloggers from around the world into one place. Regional editors look for the most interesting things in the blogosphere and link to the best posts daily. At the same time Global Voices have a huge bunch of contributing bloggers who post daily features from their home country.

I had a quick look around the site and it looks like a great resource if you are interested in what is going on in the blogs around the world. This post from the Caribbean editor, which primarily focuses on the blogosphere's reaction to the qualification of Trinidad and Tobago to the World Cup in Germany next year, is a good example of what Global Voices is all about. In fact, I liked it so much I am adding a link to the 'Blogs We Like'...

You can get a rundown on the Deutsche Welle international blog awards, including all the winners in all the categories, here.
