IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: VOTING HAS BEGUN
After a slight delay, the voting has now started. Just click the logo above to cast your vote.
Well folks, it seems that this blog of ours has been shortlisted for another ‘Best Music Blog’ award.
Following our third placing in the Digital Music Awards in October, we now stand a chance of winning the Weblog Awards’ title.
The Weblog Awards are different, however, because nominations are open and public.
And we didn’t have to nominate ourselves, which makes it a whole lot better (genuine recognition is definitely more rewarding than self-promotion).
If you’re wondering what these awards are all about, have a look at the Weblog Awards Forum, which has a handy FAQ.
Voting begins tomorrow, so, if you want to vote for us, you’ll be able to click the button above to cast your vote then.
The results are due to be announced on 18 December – just a few days before the blog celebrates its first birthday.
Remember that this is our blog. You have made it a success and any award nominations are an acknowledgement of the sense of community that exists here.
Unlike most other blogs, where one person gets on his soapbox and other people chime in with their comments, this place is for your opinions first and foremost (and everyone still gets to chime in with their comments, whilst the soapbox is never very far away and can be dragged in among the baying masses whenever needed).
That’s what makes this blog special. It’s what makes David and Polly visit regularly and we think it’s what makes you lot keep visiting, too.
We saw that yesterday with your kind words about the past year.
So do let us know what you think of our chances and keep your comments coming. We’ve really enjoyed reading them.
Thanks to AG for keeping us updated on these awards and, of course, to whoever nominated us.
