Nominated for two, won one

Yes, I won an award in this year’s South African Blog Awards! A new category, nogal (*). I’m the first winner of the GLBT category, one of three new categories introduced in this year’s awards.

It feels good to be a winner but it would have felt better had I done better in ‘Best Overseas South African Blog’, a category I won last year. Oh well, win some, lose some.

Congratulations to all the other winners.

(*) An Afrikaans word used in South African English slang as an exclamation - even!

That's an old-fashioned liquid medicine administered to those whose heads are getting too big for their blogs :-)))

Luiz: You’re not blind, there isn’t an email address anywhere here on the blog. I’ll have to do something about that sometime. I’ve just emailed you so you’ll be able to contact me properly now.

CTG: Thank you.
