Blogging awards, eh? Personally, I hate them all. Except for the ones which this blog is nominated for. So I hate them all.
Actually, I simply think there are too many. The Guardian had a good one last year, but I think it’s over a year since the last one so it was perhaps just a one-off.
I’d pay more attention to The Bloggies, if I had actually heard of most of the blogs nominated. As it happens, I’ve maybe heard of about eight of them.
A Fistful of Euros’ own awards, The Satin Pajama Awards, are probably significantly smaller, but at least I’ve heard of plenty of the blogs listed there. The problem is, once you’ve voted for Chase me ladies, I’m in the cavalry for Best Weblog, it’s a bit difficult to justify voting for anything else in any of the other categories which it’s nominated for. The only other blog I voted for was Europhobia, in Best Political Weblog. I don’t read any French blogs. Or German blogs. I will probably have a good look at the winners of Afoe’s awards.
I’m surprised bloggers haven’t actually invented a new word for blog awards. I guess ‘blawards’ sounds a bit too much like a 16th century swearword…
