Best Australian Blogs 2011

By Legal Eagle

Hmmm, I’ve been so busy with catching up at work and recovering from pneumonia that I forgot to announce that we have been nominated for the Sydney Writers’ Centre Best Australian Blogs of 2011 competition. Thank you to the lovely reader who nominated us! *mwah!*

We have also entered the People’s Choice Award – voting commences on Saturday 16 April 2011 if you’d like to give us a guernsey.

Update: Click on the badge to get to the site!

Update 2: The competition and short list got a nice little write up in The Australian.

    I promise to be honest and vote only once, even though I’d be able to do it countless times because I all cookies are destroyed when i close my browser.

    Yay us! {snoopy dance}

    I’m both proud and humble – and embarrassed because I don’t feel I contribute as much as I’d like to. Life, she gets in the way. But yay us!

    Yay youse! Proud, ‘umble and embarrassed; such a whirlpool of emotions; it’s a colourful life you lead, Ms Nitwit.

    ps “snoopy dance”? Hadn’t heard of that. Such a sheltered existence I’ve had. Must change rocks occasionally.

    Thanks for explanation DEM. Yes – sometimes watch tv at Christmas. No – never saw that.

    Don’t we have to change the badge or something? I could be wrong about this (hey, it’s technology…) but I seem to remember reading somewhere on their site that if you’re shortlisted, you have to change the badge.

    Presumably the powers that be will let us know in due course.

    They supplied a link for the nominee badge, have they emailed you for being a finalist?

    Wait, duh, it was in the email you forwarded me *facepalm*.

    Jacques, you’re full of win 🙂

    I’d offer to be Schroeder to someone doing the snoopy dance, but I haven’t done a Beethoven sonata since my uni days, unless you count fur elise with a walking baseline as an emergency pub pianist or “play school” times.

    I’ve been called full of many things before, I’m confident this is a first time for ‘win’.
