    Hello Blag,

    Thanks for the great list..!

    I also feel proud as my 2 blogs are in the list from my total 4 of 2008 ( 50% – not bad ).

    1. Alvaro Tejada Galindo Post author

      I’m so glad you liked the list -;) 50% not bad? I think it’s awesome! Remember that I actually read all blogs from 2008, and needed to choose just a few of them (People on SCN really like to write blogs LOL). The fact that 2 of your blogs made it to the list is an evidence that you’re doing such a great job here…Please keep it up and I hope to be able to include your new blogs in the 2009 list -;)
