I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this post. This is a really EXCELLENT idea - finding relevant articles and blogs from all over the world - and I've only had a look at a few of them so far, but I intend to look at each and every one of them. I'm also blogging for the Ka-Blog blogathon and I wondered if you'd mind if I did something similar on my blog (please tell me if you DO mind - I absolutely don't want to step on your toes) - I would of course credit you with the idea and link my post to your blog - it's just such an innovative and orginal idea... Maybe I'd try to cover countries that you didn't - although you did a really thorough job!
