Well, it seems that a self-professed guru of blogging and his buddies have put together the Irish Blog Awards. Well, in the tradition of the Judean People’s Front, I’m considering starting the Irish Awards for Blogging. Now, I’m not decrying the work done by Mr Mulley and his award-winning buddies… ok, that was a bit harsh. Apparently he puts a lot of work into the awards and that’s grand. Fair play to him and his apostles.
Right, the thing is this. Beaut.ie is a good site for tips on make up and stuff like that. I don’t personally have any need for it but I recognise it as a good specialist blog. Should it win Best Blog in Ireland? Well, no. If you’re looking at successful, well written and well presented blogs, then you must look towards Bock The Robber. Should he win Best Blog? In my opinion, yes he should but then I don’t read every blog out there so maybe I’m completely wrong on this. Scratch that. I’m not completely wrong because he should definitely be in the running. So why should he win it? Quality writing? Yes, that box is firmly ticked. Diversity of topic? Yep, there’s everything from cooking to arse-on-fire ranting there so that’s another box ticked. Presentation? I see nothing wrong with his presentation but I’ll freely admit that Beaut.ie probably shades it on that one but not by much. So now we come to readership. Bock leaves even the illustious blogging guru Mulley in his vapour trail in terms of readers. His figures are consistently high and that’s because it’s a quality blog.
No sour grapes here because this little site didn’t deserve to be nominated, so at least they got something right. However, if you take a look at my categories, I may be in with a chance.
Only one award has been decided upon so far so please submit anyone you think worthy in each category.
The Inaugural Best Blog Award goes to…….. BOCK THE ROBBER!

Again, this is the inaugural Awards thingy so please feel free to submit any category you want. In the meantime, congratulations to a very worthy winner.
