I have voted :slight_smile:

I only vote for things if I have been manipulated into it by clever propaganda campaigns that unscrupulously acts on my subconscious.

@colinjohnstone - I believe those clever campaigns on subconscious work. Ever since I started watching Korean dramas, I get cravings to eat ramen noodles.

What makes someone a language professional? English majors get annoyed by folks who say they can read a book therefore know as much as people with English degrees. Similarly, I would expect professional language educators might look at people who consider themselves experts just because they can speak a language to be annoying. I never heard the term “language professional” before. Just curious.

You’re right. I remember watching a load of awsome Hong Kong movies and getting the feeling that I could do those big jumps over buildings. My first faceplant into a wall put my subconscious right back to where it should have been.

Well, I as a language procrastinator admire these language professionals, Steve above all of them. May their businesses bloom! (And I voted a long time ago, but shan’t talk about it :slight_smile: )

The category is called “Top 100 Language Professional Blogs 2014” and most of the nominated sites seem to be about working as a translator and/or as an interpreter.
