Tripbase Awards 2011



I don't know exactly why this blog was nominated for another Tripbase award, as I haven't been updating it often at all... perhaps for my previous work? In any case, I received this email recently:

I am pleased to inform you that your site has been chosen to receive a Tripbase 2011 Blog Award.

This year our panel of judges reviewed hundreds of sites from across the Internet before hand-selecting the best ten for each travel category. Your site is among these elite ranks, and can be seen here:

I would like to congratulate you on your continued hard work and achievement in winning a Tripbase Award - this year, the awards have been featured in CNBC, CBS and AOL News. We have created small and large badges for you to show off your achievement to your readers, so please feel free to grab the code and upload it onto your site.

Earthquake, Tsunami

Obviously there's very little I can add to what you've already seen and heard. My thoughts are with everyone in the Tōhoku region.
