If you look over at the sidebar you might notice a new section, Awards and Acknowledgements, below the links to our coverage in the media. We’ve recently been recognized for our work here by a couple of websites that grant themselves the power to Recognize Websites and Give Out Digital Badges. So, we’ve put them up.
The first one is from the site ExpatsBlog.com, a pretty cool website that pulls selected expat blogs from all over the world and puts them all on one site. Neat. Anyway, they decided they like us and put us on, making us a Top Blog, as the badge says. In December they’ll be giving out Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards to the top three blogs from each country. Part of their selection process for that is viewing reader comments and feedback, so if you like us, even a little bit, feel free to say something in the comments and tell the good people why we should win something. Actually, since there are only…one, two, three… three blogs they list for South Korea, I guess we’re bound to walk away with some sort of prize, like in T-ball, but still, gold is nice.
The second one is from the website Masters in International Business, which provides info for people pursuing masters degrees in international business, wherever they might be doing that. They’ve selected us as one of the ‘100 Best Sites for International Businesspeople,’ which we found a little bit odd at first, since we don’t consider this blog to have much to do with business at all, but we do hope that our site provides a wealth of information and understanding for anyone living in or moving to Seoul, and we assume we’re being acknowledged for that, which is very gratifying.
Anyway, that’s that. As always, thanks to everybody who follows us here, and we hope you continue to do so!
