Blog Awards

By js, 4 January, 2009, No Comment

I have been following alot of blogs recently. Most of them are tech blogs and the Chicana blogs that I identified earlier this year.

The more blogs I read, especially those blogs that discuss blogging, I am becoming much more interested in looking at how Chicanas and Chicanos are using blogs and if they are similar or different to the ways that blogs are being used by the majority of bloggers (read white and male).

There have been some studies that have looked at how male and female bloggers use the medium so I’m going to have to go back to those in the next few weeks.

I wanted to get a sense of what other people of color are doing with blogs. I used Google to search for African American Blogs (11,300,000 hits) and for Black blogs (38,000,000 hits).  Both searches have proved fruitful. One interesting blog was the blackweblog awards. I searched through the categories and through some of the blogs. Interesting. I found another research direction.

This lead me to try to find out where blog awards came from and I was surprised to find many blog award sites and some have specific awards for Latino blogs.
