The BoBs

German news and radio service, Deutsche Welle, whose English-language service I quote from and link to fairly regularly on this blog, is running a blog awards series. They've called these awards The BoBs - the Best of the Blogs. It's not just about German blogs either, or even principally about German blogs. The BoBs website says:
Finalists in nine languages are competing for honors as Best Weblog, Best Multimedia Blog, Best Podcasting Site, a special award from Reporters Without Borders and Best Journalistic Blog in each of the contest's languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Persian, Portuguese, Russian und Spanish).

Readers can vote for the blog or blogs they consider to be the best out of the field of finalists in each category. The various finalists are an interesting and diverse looking bunch. So, if this is your kind of thing, head across to the BoBs homepage to read more. You might just find something new that tickles your fancy.
