    Welcome to the 2009 SA Blog Awards

    S A Blog Awards 2009

    I've already cast my vote for TFSA in a variety of categories, hopefully the rest of the 'congregation' will do so as well

    Thanks Morticia. That is really appreciated.

    Now let's just hope TFSA qualifies as a blog, although the rules say
    A "blog" is defined as a webpage with dated entries.
    so maybe we'll be

    I'm going to put a bit of thought into some nominations myself, I think.
    Duncan's blog for Science and Technology is a must, and maybe for a green blog nomination. Ian's printing blog is awesome, need to find a spot for that too - maybe business? Dunno.

    Peas does an awesome personal blog - I reckon that'll get my nod there.

    Going to have to think about nominations for the other categories. What other South African blogs are really good out there?

    The deadline for nominations is 14th March, so time is ticking.

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I was actually surprised by the fairly loose definition, but that does mean we qualify! I'm guessing the business blog category would be the way to go...

    http://toomuchcoffee.co.za/ is a customer who did well last year in the awards.
    This is the type of blog that should be highlighted and is always a good read.
    My blog is strictly self promotion so probably wouldn't interest them.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    Don't be so hard on yourself. I think you give a lot of very useful information in that blog.

    *SNIFF*

    The only one that made it out of blogs mentioned in this thread was mushypeasontoast.

    Gotta admit I'm disappointed.

    Yeah, I know the feeling

    My only consolation is that I did not really promote my blog for nomination other than putting up the banner. Oh well, just got to keep doing things that make a difference.

    Do you really blog that much? I also have a blog, http://blog.softdux.com but just don't get around to blogging that often that it's even worth voting for.
