Let the voting begin

STERLING work has been done by Damien and co and voting is now open for this year's Irish Blog Awards and I am delighted/thrilled/honoured to be nominated in four categories this year, Best Blog, Best Personal Blog, Best Photoblog and Most Humorous Post.


I am even more delighted because I have gotten one more nomination than my three last year which also pleased me no end.

For those of you who don't know how it works, the nomination process which ended recently made up the long list, the voting from now on will cull that long list down to a short list at which stage a judging panel will take over.

So if you like what I have been working away on here, give me a vote in whatever category you may think, as well as voting for the other blogs you feel deserve it too.

The voting form can be found here.

And if you are a blogger and didn't get to last year's awards do think of coming along this year, it is well worth it. I have to say I didn't really get the whole social networking site until I went and I was delighted I did.

Anyway it's late, I'm tired and delighted, night.

Interesting use of those two words 'sterling work' for an Irish award.

British Standard blogs? ;-)

Four different sections.. well done... I was wondering, who's ass does one have to lick to get nominated?

I've been blogging for three years now and update daily and yet still not a mention on the blog awards.

Pain in the ass really...

anyway good luck

Owen, you could have nominated yourself.

I did for Best Humourous Post and Best Group Blog for the Dublin Blog where I'm a (horribly sporadic) poster. Therefore my own blog and the group blog made the long list. I wanted to leave my begging until the voting stage, so I decided to nominate myself and then beg the readers to vote for me.

So it's not a case of licking ass, you just have to get off your own ass and do it!

I haven't a hope of winning, but it was nice to see myself on the long list anyway. Keep an eye out for next year's awards sure and put yourself in with a chance.
