Top 100 Language Blogs 2009

I'm not big on competitions, especially Internet rankings. Still, it's nice when someone notices Serendipity35 and nominates it. This nomination is an interesting one. Here's the comment that was posted on the blog:

Dear Serendipity35,
You are nominated for the "Top 100 Language Blogs 2009" competition. Congratulations! After last year’s success the language portal and Lexiophiles language blog are hosting this year’s worldwide language blog competition once again. We are confident to surpass more than the 350 blogs which entered the competition in 2008.
We have made two major changes to last year:
1. Due to the amount of blogs we have created categories: Language Learning, Language Teaching, Language Technology and Language Professionals. You are in category "Language Technology."
2. User voting will count 50% towards final score
Voting will start on July 8, leaving you enough time to prepare your readers for the upcoming voting. Voting will close on July 27 and the winners will be announced on July 30.
I had never really thought about Serendipity35 as a language blog, though I do write about that topic at times. Turns out we did not make the final cut anyway, and that makes sense when you look at the tech/language blogs that did. Still, for those of you who are language educators, there are many sites to review on their nominations pages, and useful information on the two language sites that are sponsoring the competition.

CORRECTION:  Turns out that Serendipity35 DID make the nominations cut for the Top Language and Technology Blogs, so, if you feel so inclined, click the graphic below and give us a vote. (At last look, Serendipity35 was hiding at the bottom of the voting page.)
