And the Nominations are...

Yey I made it to the (not so) Short List for the 2010 Irish Blog Awards. There was also a long list but I didn't mention it here, just in case I didn't make it to the next stage. I've been nominated in two catagories Best Beauty/Fashion (sponsored by Spinakerpo) and Best Blog of a Business (sponsored by RedCardinal) . Thanks a million to the people who nominated me, and also to the judges for all your hard work!! I do have to choose betwwen the two catagories, I'm pretty sure I'll go with business,as it was this same decision last year that really helped me form the itentity of the blog. There will be another round to whittle it down even more and then the final awards will be held in Galway on the 27th of March. Last year I missed the awards as they were fully booked, but this year I got in there early and I've booked my tickets already. Last year I made it to the final few nominations for Best Business Blog which was amazing as I was just a newbie then and didn't really know what I was doing. It would be fantastic if I made it that far again, but I don't think it works that way. I'm going to the awards to put faces to people I've been in touch with online, and to network...and also to have a hell of a piss up!
The other thing I'm really excited about is that Etsy Ireland has been nominated a few times too, as I'm one of the team co-ordinators I'm really chuffed to see this baby flourish so well in it's first year.

Also I heard that part of the judging process is based on my interection with commenters. I know there are lots of you who are silent readers, but would you mind coing out of the closet for a few weeks as this would really help me out, you don't even need to be a blogger all you do is leave your name and email address(which nobody sees but me).....thanks guys I would really appresciate it!!

Note: If any of you want to steal the above image for your blog go ahead! But if you do, could you kindly link back to me please.
