The 2011 Irish blog awards take place on 19 March in the Europa Hotel in Belfast. They are hosted by
Rick O Shea
who is just one of the coolest people on Irish radio.
I usually always nominate blogs in the various categories, and keep an eye out for the results. This year I didn’t hear much about them beforehand, and was surprised to hear that nominations had closed sooner than I was expecting. I was even more surprised to read on twitter today that my blog has been nominated in the ‘personal blog’ and ‘specialist blog’ 2011 categories. Waw!
I don’t know who nominated me, but thank you, whoever you are. I’m pleasantly surprised 🙂
I doubt I’ll get shortlisted in either category, there’s just far too many good blogs out there. I’m quite happy just to be nominated.
Many people say that blogging is dead, but if you take a look at the long list of nominated blogs on the
Irish Blog Awards website
you will see that there are still many talented and dedicated Irish bloggers out there.
