NOTE: For the sake of transparency I may be biased as I am organising an awards ceremony for Irish bloggers.
I’ve just looked at the shortlist for the Golden Spiders Best Personal Website / Blog Award. Oh dear.
The people behind the blogs may be lovely people but I do think that there are better and worthier blogs out there. Did these nominees have to pay to be entered? Lucky for me that the Irish Blog Awards, which I can confirm will be held in January, will be cost free to enter and will have a good few categories to recognize the many different talents of the Irish blogosphere. I’ll be announcing the nomination process and categories for the awards next week and everyone will have the whole of December to nominate blogs. Piaras is giving me a hand with the organising of this and we should have a date and venue confirmed fairly soon.
