As those of you in the Lib Dem blogosphere will know the Lib Dem Blog of the Year awards are now open for 2011. I am a Lib Dem blog therefore I shall be taking part and putting forward some nominations for the various categories. It wouldn’t be a total shock if I vote for similar blogs to the ones I voted for in the Total Politics Awards the other day.
As for me and this blog getting any glory. Well I’m not sure this is the best blog out there. Scratch that. It flat out isn’t. However I do think I should at least get talked about for the Best New Lib Dem Blog category. Whether it is good enough to win is by the by but I think I have written a few good pieces in the past year. Enough to get noticed anyway.
The one category where I think I could seriously make a run at is the Best posting on a Liberal Democrat blog (since 1st September 2010) one. My piece decrying the reaction of twitter to Ken Clarke and his rape comments I thought was more than half decent. The piece entitled Ken Clarke – A trial by social media is still by far the biggest blog post I have had in terms of visitors and on the day I wrote it it smashed by blog records by over 2000% in terms of traffic.
What I think though really isn’t important. I’m not on the judging panel (and I might be slightly biased towards myself) The judges will consider all the nominations and to nominate please follow the advice behind this link for all the categories and details on how to take part and get your voice heard.
Whatever happens my nonsensical ramblings about whatever fills my mind will continue. Exciting pieces such as ‘Wow…Gary Neville isn’t a complete moron’ won’t write themselves…
