I see the nomination list is out for the Irish Blog Awards.
Or that maybe should be Blog Awards Ireland?
Or as they call it now, the Grafton Media Blog Awards Ireland 2012, which is one hell of a fucking mouthful.
Anyhows, the list has been published.
They call it the Long List which is quite an accurate description.
I confess I didn’t nominate myself, so whoever submitted this site, may I say a humble thanks? I seem to be in there under four different categories – Best Post [the one about Sandy – thanks to whoever thought that was worthy!], Best Personal, Best Humour and Best Lifestyle [?]. I’m a little hurt that no one thought me worthy of Best Beauty/Fashion, or even Best Eco/Green, but then you know what they say about spilled milk….
The next stage is the judging which apparently will take another month.
One very interesting thing about the list is the absence of some Big Names. I won’t mention them but they are sites that have featured very highly in the previous Awards, including a winner or two.
What I like about the list though is that it’s a good chance to nose around and see who is out there, as frankly I haven’t even heard of the vast majority.
Should keep me occupied for a day or two?
