I wrote this at the beginning of March. Since then I have learned that the Irish Blog Awards 2012 are indeed in gestation and hope to be born on October the 13th.
This is the time of year for that annual bun-fight – the Irish Blog Awards.
Sadly they don’t seem to exist this year.
Or maybe they are deliberately not telling me?
Since the start of the awards, they were organised by Damien Mulley and a grand job he did, but last year he announced he was stepping down from the plate and that the way was open for someone else to take over.
Of course, no one did.
I miss the awards. They were a great opportunity to rip the rip the piss out of some of the other sites in Ireland. Mind you, that little bit of fun would be more difficult these days as most of the feckers have died the death. I have a little folder in my feed reader thingy called “The Morgue”, and it’s where I stick sites that haven’t updated in a while. It is full of Irish sites, more’s the pity.
Another reason that I will miss them is that I can’t add to my little collection over on the side of this page —->
They make a nice little dash of colour to add to an otherwise colourful design.
I had a few prepared in advance, ranging from “Not even Fucking Nominated” up to “Grand Prix winner”, just in case. I have deleted them now as it appears that they are a waste of space [like some other sites I could mention! Heh!].
Maybe next year?
