The 2007 Bloggies

Hi folks, it seems in my normal style I have been completely under-whelmed by my nomination and subsequent elevation to a finalist in the annual Weblog Awards.

email received from Miss C

Oh Peter, you really need to put a link to the balloting site with the
Bloggies logo, and use a post to explain that voting is open til
February 2.

This is THE most prestigious award on the internet for Blogs. The only one bigger is the Webbies, which is not limited to blogs.

Miss C

Thank you for the wake up call Miss C.

A little investigation has revealed that these awards are looked on as very prestigious, with this knowledge now at hand I would very much like to thank MissCellania (and anyone else who nominated HoltiesHouse) for her nomination and for anyone who would care to vote for my site in the finals I thank you most humbly.

As voting closes on February 2 there isn’t a lot of time to amass a winning number of votes so I urge you as readers of great discrimination to give HoltiesHouse your vote and recommend to all your friends that they do the same.

Your vote can be registered by visiting the link below scrolling to the section (and of course voting for HoltiesHouse);

Best Australian or New Zealand Weblog.
