Mamma Mia! Best News Source 2011

It was no contest for best news source among aid and development blog readers. The relatively new Guardian Development site claimed the top spot well ahead of the competition.

AlertNet (Reuters)
7.8%
Guardian Development
41.1%
Al Jazeera
19.6%
IRIN
4.3%
ReliefWeb
5.0%
BBC
22.2%
I thought it would have been much closer, but it appears that the mix of blogging and news reporting has worked well for the Guardian. It is evident that there was a sore need in aid and development reporting that the site has successfully filled for many people.

Thus ends the 2011 ABBAs. Do not worry, it is only one more year until you get to enjoy aid blogs and Sweedish pop in one place!

My my, how can I resist you?
