Slowly but surely, we're creeping toward 80 countries. The global mom meme that started with Her Bad Mother adds New Zealand, Turkey and Japan to the list. (Apparently all it took was calling out the Kiwis.) The 80clicks delicious links page now includes 172 posts from bloggers in or from 36 countries and features posts in six languages.
There are 44 countries to go before we reach the goal, and I think we're in very good shape. There are still a number of countries I considered to be somewhat "easy gets" when this started - Belgium, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Iceland, and Mexico - plus dozens of countries where we'd certainly find at least one blogger. So if you know a blogging mother in any of these countries, please let us know.
The Global Voices Online team continues to be amazingly helpful and supportive. They've referred a Russian-language blog as well as brought in a number of French-language posts. They're even doing outreach within their impressive network.
