Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get antsy waiting for the fifth to roll around so here is something I threw together with my friend, the incredibly talented Jeda DeBrí and my equally talented wife Aoife O’Donoghue. Yes, we do video here now! Like a real internet!
Okay, so now that I’ve lured you back to the blog I have to confess an ulterior motive. Let’s be honest with ourselves here. There’s no use fighting it. You feel it. I feel it. There’s something between us. Always has been. But I’ve been hurt so bad before. I just don’t know if I can trust someone again, to let my barriers down and let a community of internet commenters into my heart. What’s that you say? How can you prove your love?
Well…there is one thing, but…
No. I could never ask you.
What’s that? You insist?
So you remember I told you that I’d been nominated for the Blog Awards Ireland 2013?
Well it turns out that I’ve also been nominated for Best Blog Post. (Twice technically, the Song of the South and Black Cauldon reviews both got nommed.) This one works a little differently from the other categories. You vote for your choice (you can vote once a week) and then at the end of the week the 5 posts with the fewest votes get eliminated. This goes on every week until there are only ten left, and the winner will be announced at the Blog Awards on 12th October.
So please. If you have a moment, pop over and vote here for Song of the South for Best Blog post. (I don’t want to split the vote, and honestly, the SOS review is the one I’m more proud of.) So go, exercise your democratic right and vote. Otherwise the terrorists win. By which I mean the other bloggers. Who are terrorists. Nah. I’m kidding. They’re great, it’s all in good fun and may the best man win. They’re not terrorists.*
*No, seriously. They hate our freedom. It’s us or them.
Here I go to go vote!
If you could share the link I’ll put you in my will.
The address is http://www.blogawardsireland.com/category/best-blog-post-2/
but that may not get you there.
I’m voting for the BC review first for this week and next week, I’ll vote for Song of the South so your other blog post can have a chance of at least entering the top 20.
To be honest, I actually voted twice. I’m lucky I have 2 PCs 😉
For both of your blog posts, I meant. 😀
Weirdo to Mouse! Mouse, I voted. 29 other people have already done likewise.
I left the page and can’t get back to it, but I think you were about 30-60 places from the top. I can tell you that you were definitely much closer to the top than the bottom. 🙂
Thanks! You’re very good. If possible could you share the post to Facebook?
I voted! You now have 51 votes for your “Song of the South” post.
Just curious, how exactly does one get one’s post nominated? And exactly how does one get one’s BLOG nominated?
Step 1) Be Irish.
Step 2) Someone has to nominate your blog on the Blog Awards Site.
Step 3) The judges choose a list of blogs for the longlist.
Step 1 is kind of the kicker. Sorry.
I have it on my Facebook now, asking my friends and family to vote for your SotS review.
Awesome! Thank you!
I’m the 53rd voter. You are in 14th place.
Voted! And that Mulan video was epic.
