I have been a bit churlish.
Well. actually, I am a bit embarrassed.
You see, I got a phone call last Friday. I answered it.
"Hello! Is that Grandad?"
"It is indeed"
"Congratulations! You have been shortlisted for the Digital Media Awards!"
I didn’t know what to say. My memory being what it is, I didn’t remember entering. I told her this. But she said I had entered, and it was a long time ago. Which probably explains why I had forgotten.
Anyway, she said she would be phoning the others and could I shut up until then. So I did. She wouldn’t tell me who the others were, either. All very cloak and dagger.
She sent me the logo on Monday and I stuck it on the sidebar.
Now, when I say I’m embarrassed, it’s because I honestly don’t think I am the best blogger around. I didn’t want to appear like I was bragging by putting a big post up saying "LOOK AT ME". But the others have because they have every right to, and they have linked to me, and that is very nice of them.
The other four finalists are [in no particular order]…
I’m not going to say who my favourite is [I think they know!], but I wish them all the very best of luck.
So head over to them and congratulate them!!
