I knew three people who were going to the awards last night.
Well, I had met one and corresponded with the other two. And guess what? They all won!!
I’m delighted that Denise Cox won as Best Blogger, because she is a business blogger, and that’s what the awards are all about. And she is a very nice person too [but I don't know if that comes into the judging].
Alan Stapleton won too. I met him the other night at the get-together. He is completely insane but is an inspiration when it comes to business. I would have given him an award anyway for the number of smilies he uses when he comments on this site.
And of course the Grand Master himself – Damien Mulley. That fellow just doesn’t get the recognition he deserves, but last night went some way towards rectifying that [I'm smarming here because he runs the Irish Blog Awards!!]. And I’m glad get didn’t shell out on the suit in vain.
If I had been on the judging panel, that’s the way I would have voted. So I’m delighted.
And congratulations to everyone else too, even though I don’t know who you are.
But the moral of the story is….
If you want to be an award winner, you have to know Grandad.
