Update: Blawgs Abroad--75 more non-U.S. blawgs and sites.

Americans do tend to think that the rest of the world is rather far away and not terribly important.

--Delia Venables, UK legal IT commentator, in UK's Law Gazette, March 2, 2006.

Today at What About Clients? we add another 75 international blogs to our Directory of Non-U.S. Blogs on the left-hand side of this blog (scroll down a little). We started the Directory in early 2006; see here, here and here, a/k/a the World Cup Blawg Review. It now has nearly 300 sites, and the list of course belongs to everyone. Our last update was in August 2007. Since then, we've worked to discover more international legal weblogs, sites and resources. We list the good ones: active, high quality and preferably in English. We'd have done this earlier--but clients and our boss The Timesheet got in the way.

An important thank you is in order to five important sources: pioneer Bill Gratsch and his Blawg.com (US), Diane Levin (US), Dan Harris (China/US), Guy Kawasaki (Universe), and Jordan Furlong (Canada).

The new blogs come from 26 countries, including Belgium, Malaysia, Romania, Sri Lanka and Turkey. Are there more out there?

Thanks kindly for the addition! My eponymous little blog and I have been together for more than 4 years. Hard to believe.

Thanks very much for the plug for our media monitoring service "Reporting on Conflict." And thanks for the great list of blogs! I will have to tap some of these for news items.
