The list is great but there are some problems with country selection.

English, Commercial and Finnish are not countries :-)

I know the USA is unpopular these days (I didn't vote for the joker!) but could we be in that list too? ;-)

We're covered under "English (American)". But you're right, that's not a country. I wonder if the list is supposed to be covering languages, not countries?

Jannis?

I personally think splitting blog categories into location and language is silly, it should be one or the other. I'll give a specific example, if I'm a native German speaker I wouldn't necessarily know to look in Africa (Namibia) for german language blogs yet one might exist that I would miss. Similarly, if I'm Italian I would naturally look at the Italy listings, and might then miss any listings from the US or South America.

On the other hand I understand that people also want listings from specific countries so maybe its time to make the 'who's using' section searchable, and then get rid of the categories and use pre-defined tags instead. Place a maximum of 4 or 5 tags per listing so that the search results aren't manipulated and voila, everyone is happy.
