  1. Greetings Christopher,

    Thanks so much for the effort in compiling the list! And kudos to you for the ingenious link gathering strategy that I’m sure serves as a wonderful by-product of the work you did. Since the list and your site are so useful and well-put together, you deserve all the success in terms of additional traffic.

    I’m in the process of taking my language blog to the next level, and hope you run into it soon. To speed up the process, though, here is the url, in case you’d like to consider it for future placement:

    Again, many thanks!

  2. Hi Christopher,

    I am finally getting around to contacting you. first, Thanks for all the hard work compiling this great resource. Invaluable.

    Second, how can I get EFL Classroom 2.0 included? We’ve been around now 16 months, have been finalist for many SN awards and our site is actually one gigantic “Blog” – though we have many of the traditional blog posts/pages from members (including myself). Lots of info. and ongoing stuff. Lessons of the Day, Websites of the Day, Teaching stories, A forum bursting with lots of info on technology, eteaching, etc…….please take the time to take a look. We do have some public pages, including the bot I developed for ELLs (so they don’t have to type to practice speaking English) http://eflclassroom.com/bot.html

    Once again, appreciate your list and the consideration of being included maybe next go around. Lots of content I think really works for teachers.

    Cheers,

    David

  3. Dear Cristopher,

    I would like to thank you for including my blog in the list. Being the 4th best blog is quite a responsibility, but it makes me feel proud too, you know, that my posts might be useful for someone else. Besides, I am a NNS, and fortunately Lexiophiles didn’t take that into account (at least not as a drawback).

    There are many sites on EFL and technologies out there: blogs, wikis, social networks (such as David’s social network with Ning: http://eflclassroom.ning.com/index.php) and it must be really hard to assess them. It might be a good idea to separate sites according to their structure: lists of blogs vs wikis vs social networks. They have their own unique pros and cons and characteristics.

    I’ll write a post on Lexiophiles asap and I hope it gives you additional traffic (fair trade :)) but what’s more important, followers. That’s the hardest thing to get, especially for lonely blogging…

    Initiatives like yours make me work harder. I hope I can keep it up.
    I’ve included some 2.0 open and interactive features such as Kaltura open source collaborative video editing, openID (users can comment via their openIDs) in order to encourage and foster openness, semantic data exporter (yes, we’re heading towards web 3.0), etc. The more accessible and open your blog is, the better.

    Thank you very much. Thanks for compiling the list!
    Best wishes,

    Elena Benito

  4. Hi Christopher,

    This is me…again. Have you thought of some sort of widget or button we can embed in the blogs for our readers to vote?

    Just thinking aloud,

    Elena

  5. I think DC Blog might be given a much higher rating, given that David Crystal is Britain’s leading linguist and has done so much to spread knowledge about the nature of English throughout Britain and the world.

  6. Well what a resource you have created. I will link to your blog on my blog and we can do lunch.

    We write a blog on Globalization Metrics designed for clients who are managing the translation process. So the goal is process efficiency on the client’s side that has an overall impact on their cost, quality, learning and growth, etc (all Balanced Scorecard framework). We feel that this is a concept that has not been in our industry before. Would you consider reviewing our blog for your list http://www.langsolinc.blogspot.com

    Thank you for your consideration
    Melissa

  7. Have very much enjoyed finding this list – it’s led me to all kinds of interesting blogs I hadn’t even imagined existed.
    Would you consider reviewing my blog for your list next time round? It’s aimed at English language learners and defines and discusses various words and expressions. http://theinglesita.blogspot.com/

    Thank you, and keep up the good work,
    Catherine

  8. Hi Catherine!
