Just to let you know a few things about the 2010 Blog Awards:
- They will be in Galway
- We are looking at a March date
- Nominations will be opening on the first week of January for 2 weeks
- There are going to be new categories as well as old ones that will go
- There will be changes to the way nominations happen
But I read on a dead tree that blogging was dead?
also – w00t!
Did someone say: wooooooot?
Well… damn. Now how will I win an award for “pimpest blog by a dude with no web skills”?
RECOGNITION AT LAAAAST!
Fantastic. Looking forward to it.
Book more inflatable stuff 😀
It is surely misguided and inappropriate, at a time of cataclysmic change in the very fabric of our society when for years those impervious to the forces at work outside of our ‘fantasy bubble economy’ if I may be blithe, continued to make a mockery of the once-proud heritage our forebears fought and died for, that the organisers of some will-o’-the-wisp electronic computer awards should be asking impressionable young diarists from bedrooms across the country to part with their meagre gatherings of cash, on the spurious grounds that they may ‘win’ an ‘award’ for baring their no doubt genuine angst, so that a small collection of elitist ‘web loggers’, answerable to no facts and to no higher discernable authority, may poke fun and use foul language in the public domain.
It is not journalism and it is hot humour, and it must be stopped before the organisers go too far.

Shut up, Twenty/Miroslav.
I’ll be moving into a tent in the garden and doing B&B, like people do during the Races.
Nice news to wash down my lunchtime Christmas Grappa.
Planning outfit already!
Hopefully blogging will not have died out before March
Good news. Thanks. Blogging is far from dead. It’s the foundation stone…
I will watch this space.
I look forward to my gong!!! And the West will truly be awake!!
Roll on March..
A party. Did somebody say a party? Will there be Toyboys? My bags are packed already.
Looking forward to it!
My first trip to Galway will be to see a bunch of bloggers! W00t!
…and I won’t be so last-minute about booking my ticket this time ’round, you can be sure of that!
RE: Miroslav Hubka
And what would u do? Brag about it, The Blog awards is excellent way to promote the good use of web service in Ireland and the IT Industry it tries to build, Hence encouraging business, employment and taxes! Hence paying for hospitals etc..
It’s a great idea! keep up the good work nice to see the event visiting Galway!
It’s the first week of January – how do I nominate a blog?
Ah fantastic! Blogging will never die!
Do you have to be from ireland to nominate a website?
just wondering if nominations are open and how they work?
where can I find more information?
Exciting! I look foreard to nominations opening.
Any word on when the nominations are opening??
Great stuff, looking forward to this “Jolly Bloggers Outing” to Galway.
Sounds excellent! Plus, Galway is a great place altogether.
I await the details with anticipation.
Galway! great City….looking forward to it and setting eyes once again on the beautiful Aphrodite in her new Guna
Cool – looking forward to it.
Brilliant stuff. Galway is a great place.
I have a few blogs in mind already…
Hi Guys, that’s great news! Quick question: as a foreign living in Dublin, writing for Brazilians living in Ireland, are we elegible? http://www.e-dublin.ie or http://www.e-dublin.com.br
we have an english version also – http://www.e-dublin.com.br/en/
If yes, which category? Thanks everyone and well done,
You’re a blogger in Ireland Eduardo so you qualify.
I’ll add my own little ‘w00t’ too!
Give us a shout as soon as details re the awards are finalised and I’ll make sure and give it a good run on iGaeilge to ensure that there’s a better turn out from the blogosphere’s Gaeltacht! It was a great night last year and I’d definitely like to be in Galway for this year’s edition.
It was a great boost to iGaeilge, now touching 100,000 visits. Which isn’t too bad for an Irish language blog….
Thanks Damien! Just not sure which category should it be – Some readers have suggested:
Best Specialist Blog
(as this is for a specific niche.. not sure if applies)
Best News/Current Affairs Blog
(news/current affairs oriented to brazilian audience)
*Best Personal Blog*
(as this is my personal experience here)
*Best Group Blog*
(as I manage the Brazilian community as well, get people involved, etc)
any thoughts? thanks!
Galway’s a great choice … any details on where exactly? The G? 😉
And yeah… I’ll make sure to book early this year too! Definitely!
Just wondering when the nominations are open and will there be a category for animals / service dogs by any chance or a category for highlighting and increasing awareness of disabilities?
Cheers from Clive
(the dog with a blog)
What exactly constitutes ‘actively blogging’ ? I want to nominate several blogs in various categories but am not too sure if they posted frequently enough at the beginning of this period. Can you answer my question?
Can anyone tell a newbie like me how the judging is done? Is there a panel or or is by number of nominations. Thank a mil x
wondering where to nominate, if nominations are still open…
okay, found the link,
