Moroccans, as usual, are blogging, only this time it's about…blogging! This year, two awards are being offered in the blogosphere: the third annual Maroc Blog Awards, which has garnered significant media attention in recent years, and the brand new Best of Morocco Blog Awards (or BOMBies). The Maroc Blog Awards are currently in the voting stage and will be for another week, while the BOMBies are still taking nominations until January 21, 2010.
“Are you the BOMB?”
Two-time nominee The View from Fez writes of the BOMBies:
The voting has begun for The Best of Moroccan Blog Awards. There are five categories: Best Overall, Travel, News, Culture, and Personal.
Who will win the first annual BOMBies? Are you the BOMB?
Eatbees, an American who lives in Morocco, mentions his nomination, and says of blogging in the kingdom:
When I started in 2006, there were just a handful of bloggers writing about Morocco in English. Now there are culture blogs, travel blogs, personal blogs, blogs about news and politics — both by Moroccans and others by lovers of Morocco.
The Maroc Blog Awards
Je suis reconnaissant à tous ceux et celles qui ont voté pour moi l’année dernière, et ceux qui ont l’intention de le faire cette année aussi. Ce témoignage d’amour est une fierté pour moi, car il s’agit d’abord d’amour et non de compétition, puisque ceux qui nous choisissent nous rendent une partie de ce qu’on a partagé avec eux, dans un geste de reconnaissance.
May the best blogs win!
