I could not believe my eyes reading Catherine's comment on my previous post,Catherine had nominated my blog in the Specialist category of the Irish Blog Awards.I had linked to the site and after reading some of the nominated blogs I did not think mine would feature anywhere in the running.
I am stunned and excited to be one of the six finalists in this category!
There are 22 categories covering every topic under the sun, they are funny, informed and thought provoking.I don't know how the panel of judges can whittle them down or decide between them, not an easy task!
None of these awards would be possible without very generous sponsors and
the Specialist category is sponsored by IQ content
IQ Content have sponsored the Best Specialist Blog category again this year. iQ Content is an Irish company, based in Dublin, working for clients from across Europe. We are passionate about helping to create better websites. We do this in four ways:
1. Expertise: we provide expert advice in the key areas of web usability, accessibility, content and strategy
2. Knowledge: we help create and share knowledge by conducting original research, and collating the best internet resources we can find
3. Outsourcing: we help address client resource constraints by providing expert development and content creation services
4. Training: we share and transfer our knowledge through public and in-house training events.
To see all of the categories and some very interesting blogs log onto Irish Blog awards
The finalists in my category are a very varied mix as follows
Beyond Breast Cancer
I am in very illustrious company and may I wish everyone the best of luck in Galway on 27th March.
I cannot attend but have checked the ticket prices and they are a very reasonable 15e not the 300e asked by another award who shall be nameless!
