Occidentalism has been nominated for best Korea blog in the Asia Blog Awards. Of course, Occidentalism is one of many that are being nominated, as you can see below.

Of course, voting for yourself just isn’t sporting, so I will be voting for Jodi from the Asiapages, who is very deserving of winning an award. If you think that Occidentalism is a worthwhile blog, go ahead and vote for it. Darin, Gerry and myself appreciate just being nominated, however.

    There are some strange choices here, as well as omissions. For instance, how is Oranckay one of the best Korea Blogs? He hardly blogs any more to begin with. And how in the world is The Marmot not on the list?

    Marmot is one of the judges. Conflict of interest.

    Matt,

    If the Marmot is one of the judges, then do not expect a fair judgement. Afterall, Robert Koehler is so afraid of offending Koreans that he cannot even link to your blog, much less vote for it.

    Matt,

    If that is the case, then I am glad he is only one of 22 judges. Still, Robert has acknowledged me with a link once in the past, so I guess he will bite the bullet and just link me on his sidebar at some point. I very much doubt it is any personal animus towards me – probably more to do with offending people like Kushibo, who never missed an opportunity to bad-mouth Occidentalism on Korea related blogs.

    People like Kushibo are irrelevant. Surely no one can keep backing losers?

    Marmot doesnt seem to mind offening ‘expats’ after all he has Bluejives and Babble-on linked. Both pretty much closed down their blogs (links still up) and both focus only on hating expats.

    He also has Yankaborad who’s only focus is no how much he hates the USA.

    He keep the Nora/Kushibo links up even though he knows the truth that they are one and the same.

    Not to mention Plunge who pretty much only wrote offensive anti-japanese crap. My prayers go with him. May he rest in peace.


  6. […] I mentioned the Asia Blog Awards a couple of months ago, but having recently moved house, I have not had access to an internet connection, and have been too busy to let Occidentalism readers know that the voting for the Asia Blog Awards has started. The awards end on the 17th, US time, so there is still about a day left to vote. […]
