My criticism is this: Why in the world are British and Australian blogs considered "foreign?" Being a foreign blog is supposed to be more unique, like living in a place where not everyone around you speaks English, resources are scant, etc.

This on top of the fact that there isn't a good representation of Asian blogs. No mainland China, and no Korea-based blogs! You should consider adding someone like flyingchair.net in Hong Kong. In Korea there's marmot hole (http://marmot.blogs.com/korea/) and Incestuous Amplificiation , and Jeff in Korea (http://jeffinkorea.blog-city.com/). I of course hope that Brainysmurf (mine) would be in the running but I'm too biased to say so.

2) The Gweilo Dairies [Hong Kong]

And yes, you have missed out a lot of China and Hong Kong blogs.

Perhaps, next time maybe.

Cheers!

Yes, of course you're right Adam, why don't we jettison reader's choices altogether and apportion nominations so that all regions of the world are fairly represented. Affirmative action for bloggers is a good start. But, while we're at it, let's eliminate voting as well -- too traumatic for the losers, don't you know. And hell, let's not be timid, its time to demand a Blogger Aid program, sort of like farm supports. Taxpayers can pay me for not posting (although, in my case, they might think that's good value).
