I have not got on the Lonely Planet Thorntree since I went to Iraq and was searching for information; it looks like Lonely Planet has made some changes.

Best Destination Blog
Best Expat Blog
Best Travelouge .. (Is this spelled correctly? I pasted from the site.)
Best Consumer Travel Journal
Best non-English language Blog
Best Video Blog
Best Micro-Blogging (twitter etc)
Best Image based Blog
Best Themed Blog (trekking etc)
Bet Group Authored Blog
Best community engagement

I am very happy they separated this into categories, it just does not make sense to group all Travel Journals in the same category.

Good for them, they put the “Non English” world into this… truly hard to say the best Travel Journals when you forget the worlds speaks many languages.

"The idea is you submit your nominations under the categories below, then about mid-Feb (we’ll confirm the date closer to the time) we’ll close nominations and public voting will start for the top five nominated blogs in each category."

What is this Lonely Planet Labs?

Is popularity by readers the best way to decide which one are best? I wonder if my Mom know what the Lonely Planet is, Mom it is a Guidebook.
