2009 Irish Blog Awards Nominations

(Please note that this list contains most nominations but not all nominations, some seem to have gotten lost in the ether so we’ll try and dig them out. When we do, we’ll add them into the system.)

This is not the long list and it is not the short list, this is the Nominations List. Every one of these blogs will now be sent forward for judging. After this, a longlist will be released, followed by a short list. The winners will be announced on February 21st. As you go through the lists you might spot blogs that do not fit into the category they are listed in e.g. A blog about Monster Trucks in the Best Music Blog Category. Please let us know via email, not the nominee. Email is contact < at > awards.ie

Update: Thanks to Paul for turning the text into links. People have also asked to have their blog removed from nomination from certain or all categories. Again, send an email.

  37. old knudsen says:

    I just want to thank the foreign press for this Blog Award, sure enough it was richly deserved by me and ……………. what? a nomination? um yes indeed it is an honour to be nominated. May the best blogs win.

    By that I mean me of course.

  40. Nicola Brown says:

    Thanks a million guys, delighted to be nominated!

  41. roosta says:

    Whens the best Blog Post list dropping?

  42. So its done. Finished. Can’t do no more. I sent off the final galley copy of the manuscript to my editor, Julia at Harper Studio last week. Since then, I’ve been trying to recoup and get my online life/presence back in order. I know that this blog has been stagnant – nay, dead – for the past few months, and for that I apologize. My only excuse for this lack of activity has been the amount of writing and traveling craziness going on in my life over the past year.
