Hola! Spanish-language blogs are on our mind today at BestBlog. We found many great ones. Today’s highlight is Blog de Luis M. The post on map sites is — alone — worth taking a closer look. But there’s a lot more. Have fun checking it out.
Here’s a nice looking blog from France: Deco-Art-Design.
(We’re getting a little too English language centered over here at BestBlog. Time to start looking at other languages.)
If you want to have us take a look at a blog in a language other than English, leave us a comment!
Inspired by recent BestBlog commentator, Inadvertent Gardener, I went looking in the tags for gardening blogs. I found some nice sites. And then I found something extraordinary: Robo.
Robo is not a gardening site, although the author does work in a greenhouse. It is also written from right to left. Don’t let that put you off. When I look at blogs in languages other than my own, I look at the pictures. It’s kind of a relief to let go of words. Have a look at caricature and pictures on Robo. I like his greenhouse pictures, and the women marching, and the flowers. But what sold me on this site are Robo’s flickr (فلیکر) photos. (I’ve linked directly to flickr; you can get there from the widgets bar also.) They’re interesting, lovely. Even if you don’t know what he’s saying, the blog is typographically beautiful. Robo seems to also have an interest in posting some in English — so that’s something to look forward to.
One final thought: Even when we do not share a common language, we can still speak to each other, with enough good will and enough good pictures.
And a question (or two): Do you ever look at blogs in other languages? What common language do you discover you share?

Expanding on the language diversity on WordPress.com, here’s Korean.
Yannick Fondeur is a French economist at the Institut de Recherches Economiques et Sociales.
On e-recrutement et marché du travail, his wordpress blog, Yannick talks about the use of internet and new technologies in the recruiting process, and their impact on the job market.
Although written in French, this highly subject-oriented blog might interest non-French readers: his last post focuses on the America’s Job Bank to be closed the June 30, 2007.
April 9: We welcome Sur l’emploi et le marché du travail, Yannick’s second blog which migrates on WordPress. It’s written by Yannick and his workmate Carole Tuchzirer, and, well, it’s also focused on work and the job market as its title says.
