Punch the air!

The Blogpower Awards have now closed. There have been some shenanigans and unpleasantries (see Crushed by Ingsoc's post here for a bit of an overview) but I am delighted to have come first in the best blog name category and to have come second to Dead as a Dodo in the best Blogpower Blog. (the truth is that I came third, but James Higham has decided to withdraw in order to defuse any (wrongful) accusations of impropriety as the awards organiser).

Congratulations to everyone else who deserved it, I'm looking forward to the forthcoming awards ceremony. They kept the idea a big secret but it is up now on pageflakes.

In a word- inspired...

Well Ian, your victory in best blog name is actually one of the rare examples of one of my original nominations actually winning. Bel as best political blogger is another example.

I think it works because it's short and sweet, catchy and your blog does exactly what it says on the tin.

I meant to say congrats on the other placing as well!

Delicolor said...

Thanks for all the thanks, folks!

The As A Dodo Team said...

Many congrats on the award! And frankly you thoroughly deserved to beat us for best blogpower blog - we blame a bout of extinct avian ballot stuffing.

Colin Campbell said...

Yes Congratulations. You have a great blog. Always interesting.

DaaD- kind words, I'll refer to them in my acceptance speech! ;->

See you in SL, Colin.
