Who's Going to Win a Lonely Planet Travel Blogger Award?

Sure hope you were able to vote in the inaugural Lonely Planet Travel Blogger Awards.

There were plenty of deserving travel bloggers worth voting for in each category. I managed to get my votes in at the very last minute but it didn't seem to help my chosen travel blogs.

So far only the public vote has been tallied. From that we can see the leading leading travel blog in each category...

Go Visit Hawaii (Best Destination Blog)
Bearshapedsphere (Best Expat Blog)
Intelligent Travel Blog (Best Consumer Blog)
Windy Skies (Best Travelogue)
La Volta dels 25 ( Best Non-English Language Blog)
Churu y Marian en El Bolson (Best Spanish Language Blog)
World Signs (Best French Language Blog)
il reporter (Best Italian Language Blog)
soultravlers3 Twitter (Best Micro Blogging)
soultravelers3 You Tube (Best Video Blog)
soultravelers3 blog (Best Themed Blog)
Tacogirl's Travel Blog (Best Image Blog)
Spotted By Locals (Best Group Authored Blog)
Amateur Traveler (Best Podcast Blog)

Remember, though, that the public vote only accounts for 50% of the overall score. The remaining 50% scoring of each blog is up to the Lonely Planet judges.

The final results of the Lonely Planet Travel Blogger Awards will not be know until the 26th March, when they are announced at a party in San Francisco. It will be interesting to see if the public and the judges think the same.

Not being all that familiar for many of the leading travel blogs, I spent the rest of the morning visiting them (and all the other final nominees) to see what I had been missing. I hope you have time to do the same.

This is a call to everyone to please step outside the right vs. left paradigm. While there are important issues worth debating within this paradigm, all of them will be moot if we do not focus on a much greater issue outside this paradigm. Thomas Jefferson warned of wealth concentrating to such an extent that it threatened the state. Nowadays the media has taught us all very well to ridicule anyone who talks of central banks usurping the power of government. Well now I suppose the media will have to laugh at themselves, as many outlets from Newsweek to the Financial Times of London are openly discussing the creation of a "bank of the world" that will control economic policies of every nation. I invite you to watch this video, which details how this is currently taking place. While it focuses on our current officials' cooperation with these plans, it steps out of the typical political paradigm by highlighting the cooperation of both parties. Please do not look to politicians to protect us. Only we can protect us. And our first step must be to reach out to police and military. Without their cooperation, the global elite won't have the muscle to exercise their will of oppression. Please share this oath-keepers blog with them.
