Ooohhh I judged you

So I did, well some of you anyway.

Before I go on, I should explain that when I went to the Blog Awards last year and signed in, the lovely woman signing me in said exactly that when she saw I was me, Red Mum.

It's a quare statement and one that stopped me in my tracks! And later I was given a router by herself which has, unfortunately, sat idle, the lack of broadband until Jan being one massive hinderence.

Here I am saying it too. And I was delighted to be asked to judge some categories in then Irish Blog Awards and it wasn't easy.

I looked at Best Blog Post, Best Designed Blog, Best Arts and Culture Blog and Best Videocast. I was hoping for Best Photoblog and Best Personal Blog :) But thems the breaks:)

I know others seemed to tie themselves up in knots with all sorts of criteria, but I decided that I would go through them, considering some of the points highlighted by Damien as well as how they spoke to me and I gave them points accordingly.

Accepting being a judge was one thing, awarding points was another, but I was objective and I am really looking forward to tomorrow, it should be great craic altogether.

I should say the news coverage around the whole evening has been great and is certainly helping to build up the excitement of the night. I should also say to those bloggers who are in the vicinity who are maybe apprehensive about going, I felt the same myself last year, but what I lost in anonymity (which in my case was being lost anyway - another blog for another day) I gained in lots of other ways so do try and make it there. Can't wait see youse all!
