The launch of Bloggingportal.eu means that you can find (already) 281 blogs related to the European Union in one spot:
Alternatively, you can subscribe to the RSS feeds in your reader.
The home page offers fresh and interesting posts, selected by voluntary editors.
Posts is where you go if you want to check all the aggregated posts of the latest 24 hours.
Topics presents a choice of about thirty broad themes and more limited subheadings, if you want to approach the EU blogosphere thematically.
Blogs opens up the EU blog universe, in categories like Journalists, Individuals, MEPs / MPs / Political parties etc.
Contribute offers the opportunity to add a suitable article or to propose a new blog.
Bloggingportal.eu strives to be multilingual fraternity and sorority, so do not hesitate to propose your own or someone else’s blog in another language than English.
There were language buttons, which kept appearing and disappearing in my reader (IE7) and the language choices (# or +) seemed a bit obscure, but perhaps these questions will be sorted out when Bloggingportal.eu moves beyond the beta stage.
Press releases, official portals and news items are invaluable for anyone who follows European politics, economics or law, but blogs are where these issues are discussed and debated freely.
With its broad range of opinions and interests, Bloggingportal.eu is the source on European Union debate for every EU citizen.
Blogginportal.eu is an impressive venture, especially given that it has been created and is maintained on a voluntary basis.
If I were in the shoes of the City of Aachen, I would seriously consider Bloggingportal.eu for the next Karlspreis (Charlemagne Prize) for this most Worth(y) contribution in the service of European understanding and common endeavour.
And potential sponsors, take note.
