Casting My Vote

Having been away all over Christmas, then scooting off to Germany last week I’d almost forgotten to cast my votes for the 3rd annual Irish Blog Awards – almost.

Sure who could forget to do that?

2007 was another great year for Irish blogging, although some of my regular reads dropped off or finished writing, there was plenty on offer in the world of technology, sport, music, business, the arts and so much more – all from Irish bloggers.

I’m currently in the process of filling out my nomination form, if you haven’t done so yet then get yourself along to and cast your vote. You’ve got until 9pm Friday.

In a change to proceedings this year there will be no public vote, the nominees instead being judged on quality amongst other traits. Damien is asking nicely for judges for the blog awards, something I would do if I honestly felt I could commit more time in the week but I’ll have to pass on this twist with everything else going on. If you would like to volunteer your services as a judge then drop by for the low-down.

Of course, if you fancy nominating any of my own blogs (,, to name four out of a dozen or so) then be my guest. I was at the blog awards last year where I got to put so many faces to names for the first time. If you’re not nominated, or not voting, it’s still a great night out with a terrific bunch of people.

Do I owe Paul a pint? I owe somebody a pint!

    Don’t know if I’d dare challenge you to another pint competition – you be up at 332 readers and all that 🙂

    Yeah… still have to figure that one out. A jump of 100 readers in one day seems a little bit “out there”.

    No pint competition this year but sure maybe a pint at the awards in March, should be another laugh.

    That ‘pint’ from last year is probably still on your desk anyway!

    Ah now, give me credit – I stuck it “on file”, in “a filing cabinet”.

    Actually, it’s still in the filing cabinet here. If I could frame it I would 🙂
