Ashinmettacara.org, the blog of Buddhist monk Ashin Mettacara has reached the finalists of the Chapeau Blog Awards (http://www.chapeaublogawards.com/finalists.php) in the News category. Ashin’s blog has already won many awards including the Weblog award for Best Asian Blog in 2008.
Ashin’s blog and his website Ashin-Mettacara.com strive to bring to light the struggles of the Burmese and the cause of those around the world who seek freedom of thought, speech and expression. It comes as no surprise that his blog is up as a finalist for yet another prestigious award.
The support that was shown for Ashin and his blog in the 2008 Weblog awards was overwhelming and helped propel the visibility of his blog, his site and his struggle for the rights of his people. I have no doubt that once again his countrymen and supporters around the world will once again help his blog and the cause of the Burmese remain at the forefront.
