Irish Blog Awards 2007

Help, I'm in a state of shock!

I looked onto the Irish blog awards to vote for my favourite Irish blogs and as I scrolled through there was little old me shortlisted for best newcomer. I was so excited I nearly peed my pants!

I know some of you dear readers nominated me but I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd get onto the shortlist so thank you very much.

If you'd like to vote for any Irish blogs click on the logo above.

whay hey, well done! enid voted for you.

JC Skinner said...

Don't mean to pee on your big moment, but that's the long list?
Getting onto the long list apparently required only two votes.
This current voting round will reduce all the nominees down to the actual short list.
By which time my blog, like most of them, will have vanished from the lists.
Then, apparently, some mystical anonymous judges will do their Simon Cowell thing to the blogs on the short list, and the winners are announced sometime in March.
Good luck anyway! If you make it through the popularity contest round, then it's only a matter of identifying the secret judges and bribing them!

Hi Beccy1

I voted for you!!


Sally Lomax said...

It's great Beccy! Take no notice of Mr. Skinner's negativity. You've got to be in it to win it!!!


my4kids said...

Congratulations! Beccy
I will vote for you also.


Beccy said...

Thanks Asha.

Yey Kevin I'm up for a party.

Enid all is not as it seems, see skinners comment but I'm still thrilled, evidently it means two people voted for me last time and that's better than none or one!

Skinner, prehaps I know those judges or even am I a judge? (I'll accept used notes only)!!!

Sally maybe he's just trying to scare off the competition!

Thanks my4kids.

beccy its a pity you can only vote once

I'm headed over there right this minute to vote. Just wanted to thank you for continuing to visit my place even though I've been out of touch for awhile...and will be for most of February. Your title always makes me want a cup of hot tea.

JC Skinner said...

Sorry that some people felt I was being negative.
I actually think the long list is the most important, as it gives people a chance to see a wide cross-section of blogs they wouldn't normally encounter.
And there's that 'taking part, not the winning' thing too.
What does it matter who wins anyway? This is web 2.0, after all. Everyone wins!

Beccy said...

I think that's fair Mum.

Thanks Swampy, ienjoy your photographs even though I'm jealous of the wonderful places you live and visit.

Well said Skinner and I'm still dead chuffed to see my name up there!

Sam said...
