Irish Blog Awards 2007

Should we blog less and try to get out more?  Well if it means meeting more bloggers, I’m all for it!

I’ll post more about Saturday’s Blog Awards when I get a little time.  It was a great night!  Some I met last year are old friends now, but there are 4 times more Irish blogs now than then.  It was great to meet the new faces of blogs I’ve started to read in the past year.

Well done to Damien – and WELL DONE to Bernie, who handed his “Best Contribution” Bloscar over to Damien!  I agree with James about the huge value of Bernie’s contribution.  He is the person most responsible for inspiring me to blog and to podcast.  But Bernie saw the problem in Damien’s refusal to accept any recognition for his own work – and took matters into his own hands on the stage!  Well done!

Comhgháirdeachas le Hilary NY!  As sponsor of the Irish language award, I was delighted with the standard of nominations in this category.  Hilary’s win is a tribute to her own achievement and also recognises the wonderful work of Irish language organisations in America.

And I have some nice things for my own mantlepiece too after the weekend: Best Podcaster and Best Podcast!  Thanks to Microsoft and for sponsoring these awards.  It was nice to meet Microsoft’s Clare Dillon for the first time, and of course supported An Líonra Sóisialta last year (Hi Dave, Therese and Chris!).  Thanks to everyone who supported An Líonra Sóisialta, An tImeall and Edgecast Media over the past year.  Stay subscribed – we’re only getting started!  🙂

    Really enjoyed chatting to you towards the tail (drunken) end of the night. You have me half convinced to give podcasting a go!
