Nominate bloggers with 4 or less 'followers' for our Blogger Of The Week award! Nominations are welcome from all, whether you a new Travelblog member or a blogging veteran.
I would like to add Travelling Canucks
to the list of nominations for blogger of the week. Seasoned travelers from Canada publishing some nice blogs and photos.
Here's one that different: hmtm
. Not many photos but 104 blogs since Jan 2009. Not sure if he qualifies for blogger of the week but worth a read just for the style.
John, as long as they are currently blogging and have four or less recommends, then they qualify for blogger of the week. Thanks for the making a recommendation!
I moved your post from the Blog Treasure Hunt (which is about excellence in a particular blog) to this one regarding Blogger of the Week.
I'm excited to be the first to nominate Mert
. This blogger combines elegant writing and beautiful photography for an enjoyable read.

I would like to nominate Looking for the Dirt Roads
for blogger of the week. Travelers who are finding a way to include food and restaurant reviews into some fun travels.
I first ran across Mewwitt
when she took her vacation in Thailand (I look for blogs about Thailand everyday as this is usually a city travelers go through on their RTW or Asia trips). I enjoyed Merritt's writing so went back through her previous blogs about her life in China, first as a year abroad college student, and then returning for graduate school to master the Chinese language. She then began a career there in the corporate world. I forgot to subscribe or Recommend her, so all contact was lost until I just happened to run across her latest blogs. Her blogs about her life in China are touching from the relationships she developed and then the difficult decison to return "home." Last Christmas she moved back to the States, and is experiencing reversed culture shock. She promises to blog more. So I am nominating her for Blogger of the Week.
Bob, this is great you were able to "find" her again - I will second your nomination for Mewwitt
, as she has a lovely and engaging writing style.
I would like to nominateCasey Lary
for blogger of the week. Read about her upcoming two week spring trip. Sounds crazy. She written 60 + blogs, 2300+ photos and many adventures around the world. She belongs on the front page. Take a look and make your own decision.

In response to: Msg #153685
I will also second the nomination for and Recommend Casey Lary
. This means she has four Recommends so if she is to be Blogger of the week, this has to happen before she gets five Recommendations.
I would like to nominate Synnott
for blogger of the week. A seasoned blogger with 100+ blogs. He has traveled to all 7 continents, visited 89 countries, and has shared his impressions along the way. Take a look.
I have to nominate sarahwalker
now as she has received 4 Recommends within the last week or so (by such notables as Ali and Jo Trouble), and will soon be ineligible for this award (I know I am too goal oriented and think getting awards are a neat deal) as she will graduate to the front page, which she deserves right now with one more click on the Recommend button.
Anyway, Sarah's first blogs were about her trip to Antarctica...who starts with that! Now she is traveling overland from Spain to Turkey via all of Africa. Her journey has just started and she in in Morrocco, much beloved by D & MJ, who after reading her blogs will likely click that button after giving due consideration on the merits of the Blogger of the Week award.
She gives a lot of detail that will be very helpful to those who want to know about overlanding. She told me that she is considering overlanding the Silk Road too, so many great blogs lie ahead.
I reckon that this week's recipient for the Blogger of the Week award is going to face some tough competition!
Having said that, I'm going to second sarahwalker
and thus make this task even tougher.
I third sarahwalker
