Pick me, pick me!

Until a week or so ago, I’d never heard of the SA Blog Awards. It seems to be run along very much the same lines of many of the other Blog Awards you see on the net but is restricted to blogs with a South African connection.

Kyknoord and Queermind have both resorted to shameless self-promotion in asking for nominations from their readers so I shall follow suit.

Go on, nominate me, you know you want to.

Oh, and hurry up about it - nominations close at the end of the week.

Very kind of you! However, you don't have to restrict me to only one category. There is best SAfrican blog overseas, best new blog, etc.

But, I think the rules ensure that are fair by asking you to nominate other South African blogs. If you don't know any, that makes it a bit more of pain in the butt. So, if it all seems to complicated just submit me and if they don't accept it, so be it.

What was that slogan for the courier company? "Consider it done!" It's actually true in this case because I nominated you last week :)

Shameless self-promotion may well work!

Re. Kyknoord's answer: ditto for me. I discovered the existence of the SA awards last week and you're the first person I thought of for the ex-pat blog category. You can eat 'em up in that one so break a leg! Any other suggestions?

The other suggestions would mean crossing into Kyknoord's territory but, what the heck: best new blog, best blog, best lifestyle blog.

There you go, three extra categories!

Thank you, you are a dahlingk!

Sounds great Nomad! But nominate you for what??? For your blog???

Just kidding, of course I'm voting for you, but promise you'll flutter your eyelashes at me too then.

You can nominate me for 'da main man' but that would have to be somewhere else.

Everything I do is shameless! When I discovered the Awards I could only think of 3-4 SA Blogs to nominate. Sad.

Good luck, though your calibre of writing makes you a natural winner.

Way ahead of you on this one... already done!
It will be interesting to see how many of the new SA blogs make it to the final stage.

guyana-gyal: What a good girl you are - thank you! By the way, there is a guyana flag on the blog now but it must have come from someone else as your visits register as from the US....bloody American imperialists! :-)
