New blogs to read

The eagle-eyed amongst you might have noticed a few new additions to my blogroll in the last couple of days. All of them are English-language blogs relating to Berlin, and they're all worth a read.

First up is Master of the Obvious, who has already received a hat-tip in my previous post. As far as I can tell, she's an American post-grad student living in Berlin.

Next on the list is Metroblogging Berlin, which is a colloborative blog that is part of the Metroblogging community. What I've read so far has been good. The Metroblogging community describes itself thus:
With almost 40 active sites, Metroblogging is the largest and fastest growing network of city-specific blogs on the Web. From San Francisco to Bangkok, from Karachi to Toronto, Metblogs are a hyper-local look at what's going on in the city. Our hand-picked core of regional bloggers give each site a new perspective on daily life; less calendar listings, more friendly advice. With Metblogs, you can read about life and times in your neighborhood, your favorite places to visit, places where you've never been, or get a feel for them all with the daily "best of" blog on the hub at metroblogging.com
And last, but certainly not least, welcome to the blogosphere to P. and Gunther over at Berlin Review. They've not been at it for long, so far, but what they've produced so far has been top notch, with excellent Berlin-specific posts as well as broader analysis of German politics etc. from (at least one, not sure about Gunther yet) ex-pat British perspective. Top stuff.

All those sites are worth your time and your bandwidth, so click on through and have a look around.
