24 hours into my appeal and good news – we have 4 category sponsors so far, 8 to go.
Blacknight Solutions are sponsoring an iPod Nano for the Best Blog. Damn, that was fast and it was generous too. Thanks guys. Additionally Wiki Ireland, Boards.ie and FirstPartners.net have also shown me the money and have sponsored categories. Boards.ie are also sponsoring some money towards some food. As I also mentioned the IrishBlogs folks have designed the voting sytem, so thank you for that and also must mention Spoiltchild who created our logo. We also have a few bottles of wine for spot prizes which were donated, thanks John! Still looking for more spot prizes.
Remember that if you sponsor early, your sponsor name will be displayed on the voting page next to the corresponding category you’re sponsoring. That will be seen by a LOT of people when the public voting round starts.
