Today sees the final few hours left to nominate blogs for the blog Awards. Not that you’ve not been warned! We still need judges so put up the lámh there and apply. Also, just one category is left to sponsor, which is fantastic.

As Conn points out, the start of March is unofficially Irish Blogging Week.

Seán is looking for a job. I can highly recommend him.

No, I am not behind Fanny Waters’ Blog and no I am not behind the Fake Twink blog, why not get some agony aunt advice from Barbie’s Granny? Yes I am considering creating a Best Fake Blog category for the Blog Awards.

More ways of imposing crap on your blog readers.

Right so we all know Tom Cruise is the crazy and it seems his chat up line to Jennifer Garner was “Do you know what freedom is?” but have you seen the leaked scientology video that he’s in? It keeps appearing and disappearing off YouTube but Gawker has it here.

Robin shows we are still very much geographically limited. World ain’t flat yet.

Via Anton Emily Dickinson – I’m Nobody

Want to be a Blog Awards judge?

Check out the Irish Family History blog.

Want to try some of my Dirty Chai?

Via Value Ireland, the chair of the quango-loving and mostly clueless Consumer Association of Ireland has a personal blog. (Not associated with CAI). The CAI are the yesmen of ComReg when the EU comes calling. The CAI get paid a lot of money to be on ComReg’s consumer panel so never really rock the boat. They get €1500 per half day meeting to be exact and happily listen to lies and perverted pricing stats which are reguritated to the EU when they come to town.

So Labour are starting to box clever?

Check this video and explanation via Daithí. Journos with backbones.

OfCom got it pretty much right when it came to being a telcoms/broadcast regulator. Their old boss just got a massive job in Downing Street.
